I get the alliteration/repetition part, but I fail to see any humor in "CRAPtacular", or "crippled"

Laugh! I call my horse all kinds of names, it's ok though, last I knew his reading skills were not too hot.

Seems derogatory to her, and really makes no sense??
I call my horse a sausage on 4 legs. Is that offensive to her?

Not as long as she doesn't find out. As long as you say it behind her back, she's bound to remain clueless

From what I can see, he doesn't seem to have posty hocks or cow hocks (mind you better pics would be a +) His knees are nice and flat, cannon bone doesn't look too long, REALLY well balanced looking boy, bleh I could go on forever. He is an all around eye pleasing horse, with a great color as a bonus. Any of you experts see any flaws?




I would buy him 100% (as long as he was sound and passed the PPE )
Oh yeah, he's gorgeous! I could never afford a horse so nice. But I do wish there were more of them out there.

Very pretty, but I wouldn't call him perfect. I think the first (dappled chestnut) looking horse is close to perfect.

This guy (the black horse) almost looks a tad roach backed to me. It might just be that his back is really short, which normally is good, but there is something about his back I don't really like. Maybe it's just an optical illusion. I know I have taken a lot of photos of my own horses that make them look like they have flaws that they don't really have. His neck/throatlatch area is also a bit thick.

Gorgeous horse, I just don't know if he is the best of the best.

As far as Quarter Horses go (because I don't have time to look for other breeds right now) I really like the build of Dunbars Gold.

I dunno on the black, still. It's not so much the length of the neck as the angle, muscling, and thickness of the throatlatch that lies below the "perfection" mark for me. And now that I'm on the better monitor, I think I see the mild roach that thr mentioned. Still, undoubtedly, a very very nice horse, and better than 95% of what you see today, but not, to me at least, "perfect."

WhoaNow, it's because I hate my horse and intend to sell her to the knacker at the first opportunity I'm given.

If she does send her to the knackers, I'll take a piece of that meat! After everything Bones has put her through financially, that's the highest priced best cared for piece of meat going! She'd have to sell it at $10 a pound just to begin to recoup her losses!
