Too big for what, lol? A shot at that angle will make any nose look big.

If this is a serious question, it is impossible to tell from the picture. Considering he looks to have a very Roman nose and also has some feather, I'd guess he is some sort of a draft cross. His Roman nose, would then be common for his type and probably not too big or out of the ordinary.

Yes, he needs to go on a nose-diet immediately. Cut out all scented feeds.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Yes. Your horse is the first I have seen in a long time that has the birth defect Moosenoseum...most of them don't survive to full term because the massive nose ruptures the placental sac, releasing all the amniotic fluid prematurely....

No, no, I was just joking. Working at home, bored out of my gourd, snapped this pic and thought it was kinda cute...

He is a draft, a Percheron, one of the short muscly kind. His nose IS big: I got him the biggest dressage bridle Classic Saddlery had, and the noseband won't fit over his honker!

I hope you don't discuss this with others, within his hearing. I could give him a complex. And what's all this about 'working' at home, while all the time, taking pics of your horse's nose? I'm tending to think the 'work' part, is not getting done.
