Ew. I don't like him at all.

How in God's name did he win so much and get so famous?

If you take away his neck and head, he looks like a Belgian Blue Cow

I dunno about famous horses, but my dad had a racing QH that broke track records all over the state of Iowa with club feet.

Actually ruffians trainer advised against it; the owners didn't listen. Her trainer was very vocal in his dislike of match racing. So I blame the owner(s) :/

This is Peter the Great, one of the most famous trotting horses/sire of trotting horses. He was from Kalamazoo and many trotters can trace their lineage back to him. Please forgive my bragging a bit but his owner, Daniel Streeter, was my great-grandfather. As far as we know, my great-grandfather and me are the onlyl "horsey" people in our family. My dad always said he wished he had known me - I sure wish I had known him!

*shrug* Doesn't change the fact that he has a short neck, large unattractive ears, and a short, flat croup. Call me crazy, but there are much better horses out there and his whole HYPP legacy was so not worth it. ;)

This is a little off- topic, but... I like big ears. LOL. Everyone else seems to think they're unattractive, though...
I agree with MakeYourMark, though. He's not a stallion I ever found... well, worth keeping intact... and although his offspring may do well showing, the whole HYPP thing cancels out any possibility of him being a good producer. :/

I would love it if you did! I was born in California, but every summer we would go to Kalamazoo to visit my dad's relatives. We would also go to Gull Lake - I even caught a turtle in that lake! I really love Kalamazoo - great memories!
