And so it begins. Cozmic One is off to Florida for training! He is HUGE and a very pretty boy.

He looks like a racehorse...nice and scopey, with good balance. Also was pretty well-behaved, for an 18-month-old colt.

He really is gorgeous. I think he bypassed the awkward yearling phase entirely.

I'm no expert on conformation so someone that knows a lot more than me can you please answer this? Someone on the Zenyatta site said Cozmic One " is base narrow and paddles and will not stay sound". 1) what does this mean (I know what staying sound is ;) ) and 2) do you see this in him? Just curious and to learn more about conformation.

I saw that too but also saw someone told them they don't know what they're talking about and he was most likely sedated for the trip and he's not being walked for a sale, but would be curious to hear other comments from those who know...

I was thinking they probably gave him a little something too. He seemed kind of sluggish to me. Personally I think he looks pretty good.

how someone got all of that from a distorted video (it's stretched awkwardly) where you could barely see him walk from the front at all, save a few steps where he was starting to try to turn sideways anyway, i have no idea. i'm sure he's fine and someone's just trying (and failing) to sound like an expert.

Not an expert, but that was pretty much my assessment of that comment as well. Hopefully just a busybody.

Sedated for the trip...that makes sense, and would explain why a colt of his age and inexperience would load like a seven-year-old gelding. Would also explain why his 'dingle' was dangling...because, y'know, it's just too much trouble to, y'know, pull it back in, 'cause I'm soo spaced, dude. :lol:

Look at the bone on him. Wow. He's going to be one huge race horse.

Seriously, where has the time gone!!? Wasn't he just born? Geez. He does look good, and to me, he has long legs!

I wonder how the driver of that truck feels? Think they're just horses to him or "holy shit I have - put famous horse name here - in my truck!!" Lol! :)

Wasn't it said that Slew paddled? I don't even know what paddling means but I thought I read that somewhere. And that Paul Turner fixed him up with dressage training after she named him Baby Huey! Don't know if it's true but I've always loved the story.

It means he does not walk straight. The knees turn in which makes his heels flip out when he walks.
