Just because my horse is big doesn't mean he's a thoroughbred. Note the very loud pinto coloring? Not something you see on thoroughbreds (I know there are some pinto TBs, but the average lay-person doesn't know that).
We were walking down the road one day (I was leading Aires because he wasn't broke yet and my best friend was riding her Arab mare) and this older man was in his front yard as we went by. He came over to the road and said "Beautiful horse. He's huge. Is he a thoroughbred?" Ok, firstly, Aires was only about 15hh at the time. Second, he's built like a draft horse (imagine that, he's half draft). Third, he's a LOUD black and white pinto. Sadly, this guy owned three horses (one of which was a pathetic old Arab gelding with a horrible sway back, wormy belly and horrendously overgrown feet...for the first six months, we thought for sure he was a pregnant mare...then we saw him dangling one day O.o).
