He is wearing splint boots and bell boots for protection. The stretchies are on to build more muscle-nothing "big licks" is on this horse. Nothing that he is wearing would help him to gait.

The stretchers are resistance training. It builds muscle and encourages lift. They really don't do much other than build muscle for motion. I know people who use similar elastics in their own fitness programs. Some horses will pull them and some will not. It depends on the horse. The line to the girth is to keep the tubing from twisting and tangling and from getting caught in a shoe or stepped on.

Also, quarter boots protect the front heels from being hurt if he oversteps. They also protect him from stepping pn and pulling off a shoe. They are solely for protection, not action. Saddlebred people don't want to hurt their horses and can't if they want any motion at all

My mistake, though I truly thought it was big lick'ed. Sorry for confusion... I am VERY pleased to hear that he is not big lick'ed.. a shame for any horse especially one as imressivly beautiful as this horse, Elvis, is. I appologise for misunderstanding. TWH's have such kind hearts - I hope to own one oneday..

Ok, here are the winners! Btw, I'm sorry I can't put up the winner's pics up like I said I would. I just realized I don't know how to quote more than one person at a time, or how to quote only a part of a post. So I'm just putting up who won what.

Tianimalz won the Best Bareback Photo.

Brighteyes won the Prettiest Gaited Horse Photo and the Best Action Photo.

Kstinson won a bunch! She submitted the most photos. She won the Best Parking Out, Ugliest Horse, Most Energetic Buck/Rear, Nicest Mane and Tail, Funniest Picture, and the Prettiest Landscape Photos.

MidsummerFable won the overall, best horse photo! And I already have the drawing done. Here it is:

Like it? I didn't draw the trees due to time constraints--it takes a looooong time to draw tree leaves, lol!
