    NICE pedigree. I remember Special Effort. Loved him and thought about breeding a race bred mare I owned to him (if I could have shipped her.. since Special Effort stud a LONG way from NY).

    It is good to know that I still have an eye for a good (race bred) horse.. and this gelding is a good horse.

    I'd like to see his hocks slightly lower to the ground, and I would like to see slightly better bone in his legs. Shoulder is a teeny bit steep. His withers seem to be set back a bit which will make saddle fitting a little tricky.

    Overall, a nice looking horse. I'd love having him at my place.

    Just make sure he's at least got yearly vet checks and yearly chiro checks; more frequent if a problem is ever detected. Barrel horses are notoriously hard on their hocks, stifles, and backs.

    @Elana - I had a sobbing fit when I heard Special Effort had passed. Typically I do not have much feeling for 'celebrity' horses when they pass but I have always loved Special Effort.

    @beau159 - 110% agree on the check ups. I will be there anyway for vaccinations so really nothing out of my way.

    And in that moment I realized...I don't have very many pictures of Mr. Special...I do have random ones. Feel free to critique if you please...except the little boy. It was his second time riding so I would prefer to get heat than him.

    The more I see of this horse the more I like him. Then you put a kid on him and it looks like he is being a perfect Gentleman.

    You got a winner there.. whether he runs barrels and wins money or not!

    He's had people on him from 2 years old to 80 and it's quite amusing when he has a novice rider. Generally he has a very long stride, he can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time but when he feels his rider is a beginner he takes the tinniest little baby steps.

    I'm just thrilled that I also have his 3 year old brother as well, so when my younger siblings steal Special I have a back up horse. =D
