Roman Noses.

So how many people people like roman noses. Barney has one and I love it but I liked it before I got him of course. Horse who have it always remind me of solder horses, like the ones you see on greek drawings and other old pictures. But it might be just me... am I the only one?

If any one has a horse with a roman nose I would love to see some pictures!

I think roman noses look just fine, and they do remind me of the war horses. ;) I knew a horse with a roman nose once... his name was Roman. He was very handsome, but a lesson horse who was burnt out on the job.

Actually, I must admit to not being a huge fan of the extremely dished faces.

My Percheron John has a roman nose or what I have always called hame-headed. His forehead is more convex and is not flat at all. I think it suits him though and it is common in draft breeds.

Love the breeches, JDI.

I think some horses look great with them..others not so much. Usually they're cute though =)

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

maybe I'm on my own here...I hate them. Unless you have a draft cross or one of the heavier breeds...I don't find it "acceptable"...but I suppose that comes from the fact that Im into quarter horses with the baby doll face, big intelligent eye, small muzzle, and little fox ears. lol
