Arrow Roman Noses (:

Hey, guys!
Now, I don't know about you, but I am, and have always been a sucker for a horse with a roman nose. It is one of those things that makes me think of ancient Roman war horses or baroque medival horses ridden by knights. I don't know why, but it melts me.Lol I would like to see some of your horses' roman noses. So please share a picture or two!

Here's mine: Judah, 10 year old Mustang. Love him and his nose.

Roman noses give a horse SOO much personality to his face, I can't help but love them :)
My first horse had a roman nose, and both of the belgians have a roman nose. My sisters horse Comanchie has one too.
It's the same with dished faces, they have personality to them :)

I always felt that appreciation of a Roman nose in horses was a sign of maturing tastes. YOu see, when you are young you usually are more attracted to the "cute" factor of the Arab dished face. You want the "fairy" or "unicorn" look. PInk and blue with glitter ,too.
As you get older, you see that horse's with the Roman nose have a certain grandness, a gravity of being that says "HORSE" in no uncertain terms. Not pretty pocket pony, . . HORSE.
See the grand horses of Spain and even the Lippizaners have the stately fore of the Roman Nose,

NO,, my horse does not have one and I still think he's wonderful
