Will this affect him negatively in halter shows?
I want to start taking my bay colt to local shows. I used to do 4-H when I was younger and I would like to start doing halter class showing again locally. But when Jet was a baby he was attacked by a dog will this scar cost hurt him a lot point wise? Thanks!

At a local level, i wouldnt think so.

Thats based solely on my own experience though. My mare has a large, raised scar like that. Ive shown her halter locally and at every show ive gone to, we have placed 1st or 2nd out of 10+ entries.

For local shows...probably not. halter is mainly based on confo.

no blemish is supposed to be judged against. Only genetic defect.

I wouldn't think so, because like in the NZ showing world, scars etc are thought of as "human error" so are not judged against, whereas conformation faults are judged against
