Thanks for the responses guys... I went to the Keuring last year and it was brutal. The judges had no mercy. There were actually a lot of foals that had confirmation issues. I worry about mine because he is toed out right now. When I got him at 6 months, his legs were perfect but the older he got, the more toed out he got. My farrier and vet keeps reasuring me that when his chest fills out his legs will straighten out. The only faith I really have in this is one of his legs are straightening out. It's weird but the toeing out seems to switch feet sometimes too. Oh well, this is one of the big reasons I am taking him to the keuring clinic. I want an unbiased opinion.
Yes I have heard the Keuring is very harsh, I was thinking about going to check out the one in Monroe, Washington as I've never been. Would be good to see what its like and learn a bit about it before I get my Friesian
Definitely go! You can really see who has quality horses and cares about breeding. It's nice to compare all the different horses and breeders. The stallions are pretty amazing too. It definitely takes a special someone to handle a stallion. The most dangerous part of the Keuring is almost all those babies are for sale! Very hard to resist. My breeder is expecting an Anton343 baby... Wow, I really want that baby. I have one boy from that mare (he's a Wander baby). We are really happy with the results. Have you seen that stallion Anton? I love all that hair!
