Could be either/both the angle of the photo and the fact that his knee is slightly bent.

Welcome to the forum, Donnerhall, and thanks for posting the photo of Torok.

I agree he does have presence and has an athletic, robust look about him.

Thank you. He is doing a great job as a young sire in my country and I wanted to ask your oppinons about his confirmation.

He is very attractive. Where is he standing? And is his dam's name actually Red Ransom, or is he out of a Red Ransom mare?

He is a really nice-looking individual.

While I don't consider myself a conformation expert, Torok is certainly a handsome, well-balanced horse. Lovely head and again, a tremendous presence about him. His sire, Singspiel, was an excellent racehorse with an outstanding pedigree. Singspiel unfortunately died at the same age (18) and from the same disease (laminitis) that killed Secretariat. Torok's dam has a solid pedigree also.

Supposedly he enters stud next year, but he bred some mares this year. No, I have no idea why he's at stud, except...Calumet.

IMHO, there oughta be a law against outlining stallions. :evil: Photoshop does a disservice to all those horses.
