War Command and Australia are nicely balanced, but Gold Ship looks so long-bodied he looks like a silver stretch limo.
Handsome, flashy Violence looks like a MdO, who I don't think has ever sired a homely horse. ;)

It doesn't help that Gold Ship is really leaning forward in that photo. It's unfortunate that's the one they're using.

Nice to see the whole spectrum of the most compact sprinters (No Nay Never) to the lankiest stayers (Gold Ship) :lol:

Dang, I was thinking the same thing. It's the size of his head; it almost looks like someone used a headshot from a different photo, but got the proportions wrong when they copied the head on to this body. :oops: ;)

:lol: I thought he'd make a nice hunter. But yeah, his head looks pony-sized. It doesn't hurt that he's greying out very prettily.

Not strictly a conformation photo, but it's such a beautiful image of the gorgeous California Chrome in his paddock at Haras Sumaya in Chile. On this day after the horrific Las Vegas massacre, it just seemed we all could use a bit of joy, beauty and innocence. Photo by: Juan Ignacio Bozzello — at Haras Sumaya.

He sure has that new-copper-penny-in-the-sun look down pat. :D

Finnegans Wake is definitely my favorite of that bunch. American Freedom would be but those legs look iffy. Dandino has a nice sporty look and nice bone but has Noassatall Syndrome. Aldrin looks like a halter horse, I'm sure if he lost about 150lbs he'd look way better.

And poor Juba. They didn't even clean all the dirt off him or polish his hooves. His head is up and facing the camera so he looks off-balance and ewe-necked.
