Let me google that for you

Sorry but I find it hard to believe you don't have any pictures of your amazing, winning, and extremely fit halter horses.

You can post all you want.

But that doesn't make it right.

It's just your opinion.

But please.

Keep telling us how we're wrong.

It hurts my feelings so much.

Someone that used to own and show "fit" halter horses.

Laugh.



Yes..very much so..
The title of the thread is "IMO".

As for you not believing me.....

I will just cry in my pillow tonight.

It may have started "IMO" but now you're telling people they are wrong..Um, do I need to Google that for you too?

You may need a pillow or two.

A box of Kleenex just to be safe.

I must say, this is the funniest thread I have read in quite some time. Does the OP remind anyone else of a certain arachnid that shall remain nameless? The consistent spouting of "I've won all these things, blah, blah, blah" with absolutely zero proof to back it up .

Pictures from the '70s are really not that difficult to get, you know...

This picture was just a hair older, taken in '82



This picture was taken in '78 when this mare set Appaloosa history.


Taken in '79


Taken in '80



Maybe it's just me, but considering that these pictures really aren't that big of a deal to my Dad (who trained/showed all these horses) and yet they are still readily available, I find it really hard to believe that someone who makes such a huge stink about how amazing she was has absolutely zero pictures of anything from that time.....
I said I did not have them on my PC.

Not a bad looking little horse. Hard to get an accurate critique on his head/neck due to it being turned in this picture and on the alert in your other one. Neck appears just a bit on the short side but may look better when he has his head level. Shoulder angle is good, front legs are nice and straight with good pastern angle. Perhaps a bit light on bone but not terrible. Back is nice and short, but it's a bit too angled downhill.

Hind end: He has a very steep croup and he is fairly straight through his hip and stifle giving him a fairly pronounced goose rump. His hocks look good from what I can see, they appear to have good angle to them and they line up well, good pastern angle on the back.

I don't see any reason why he couldn't do decently well at lower level shows. The biggest thing is that you'll have to use your abilities to make up for his shortcomings. Make sure that he'll stand up square without you having to fiddle with him for a long time. Make sure that he'll walk and trot up nicely at your shoulder with no resistance, etc.

I would start riding/working him a bit more to try to get rid of that belly, but other than that, he looks good.





That, Ripper, is how you do a critique .

Quick question – what qualifies you to be such a "halter" guru? I'm a wee bit lost in that regard, and haven't seen or heard anything to validate your, er, superior advice.

I think this thread has ran it's course, there is nothing that's going to be gained here. With that, I'm closing this one.
