The 'unlikely hero' is always a superstar. :D
I really like Orfevre and wish him the very best in his stud career.

Dialed In is handsome! I'm so glad he's producing some really nice horses.

Dialed In is a good looking fellow. I like his pedigree also and it's nice to see the name Darby Dan associated with a successful stallion again.

Hi, Ridan. These are such pretty headshots, I'd like to post them. For anyone who hasn't learned this trick, I'll share it. Right-click on the photo and select "copy image (or photo) address." On the formatting bar at the top of the text box here, click on the "Img" box, and paste the address in between the two Image

This is Not This Time:

I think both those boys are handsome. 'Chrome has a chiseled head and muzzle, while NTT has an elegant look with his long neck. And they both have big, dark eyes, something that really appeals to me.
Dialed In, while otherwise attractive, seems to have rather small eyes for the length of his head. :oops:

Good morning Sparrow Castle. Thanks for posting the actual pictures. They are indeed pretty head shots of the two stallions. Chrome has always been a looker, of course, and that's one reason for his incredible popularity. But Not This Time is also deserving of notice because he sure is one pretty fellow.

My pleasure, and I agree!

Orfevre is really quite beautiful. Not a Palomino, but almost has Palomino-like mane and tail. I especially like Orfevre's pedigree, which would be nearly a total outcross for many American (and British) horses. I will never have the money, of course, but my fantasy is to bring quality mares by stallions such as Orfevre and some top German-breds to this country to cross with our top stallions.

He is beautiful but his mane looks horrible.

Japanese horsemen seem like they tend to let the manes grow out on their horses, even when they are in training. Orfevre has always had those flowing locks, I think Gold Ship did too, off the top of my head. I like it.

But, it's not natural because it's straightened out. Typically their manes grow on an angle, almost in a triangle. It's been grown out, but trimmed straight. Ugh.

I don't know, it looks natural to me. I work with Saddlebreds and we leave the manes long. Looks like every mane in our barn.

It looks like Orfevre's mane is pulled, not cut with scissors. Looks fine to me.
