And im curious about that fat on the top of his neck I've never seen that on any horse except those with cushings and those that are obese. Is that a breed trait? I've never seen a paso w/ a neck like that though.
Wow... that was actually really offensive.
1. I don't care if you think it looks bad. I wasn't asking for opinions. I think it shows off his gorgeous arched neck... instead of hiding it under a mane.
2. My gelding NEVER had a gorgeous Paso mane. That's part of the reason I roached it.
3. That isn't fat on his neck - it's muscle. Horses don't just accumulate fat in one area of their body and have a slim build everywhere else. If it were fat on his crest, he would have a fat belly and croup as well.
4. You obviously don't know very much about Pasos because most of them have pretty thick, cresty necks. His is extra cresty because he was gelded when he was 8.
