I was thinking of starting Cinny out in the show ring with some Halter/Showmanship classes and I was talking to my trainer about it and she thinks that his head my put him back a few points. I am not necessarily out to get blues or anything and I may be prejudiced but I think he's a darn good looking horse....but I am biased. Anyway, what do you think of his head? He's got Strong paint on top and all Quarter on the bottom and is very old style quarter typey. I won't tell you the flaw my trainer saw because I want to see if it really is THAT obvious...so if you think you see it let me know. I know it's just one picture, but this picture shows the flaw my trainer saw really well.
By the way, those are NOT scars on his face, he got silly in the trailer yesterday and rubbed his hair off so it will pretty much grow back. Even after just a day they are already disappearing.
Yeah, do you think they will take a lot of points off? He's not going to any AQHA shows because he's not really technically a Quarter Horse just everyone mistakes him for one because other than the bulge he's pretty typy AND he's a Solid paint
Honestly, I am very picky about heads and I don't think his head is "bad" or ugly at all. However, I am no a halter judge. Will he get points off? Maybe. But if you want to do it to have fun go ahead and do it!
In the halter class you might get points off, it really depends on the judge. You shouldn't have to worry to much in showmanship though, they are looking more for responsivness and your teamwork then conformation.
