A lot of those confo photos are baaaad. Nobody looks really skinny (except for some of the horses fresh off the track), just poorly muscled, woolly/dirty, and posed badly. TJK photos used to look a lot better overall, I wonder if the rough political situation is getting to them. Deha, Halicarnassus, Native Khan, Victory Gallop, and Yildirimbey still look lovely though.

The quality of the stallions themselves and their pedigrees is still excellent though. IIRC they don't race geldings in Turkey so the homebred stallions often have long careers behind them. And it's nice to see stallions from diverse sirelines like Unaccounted For, Sea Hero, Pleasantly Perfect, Divine Light, Yonaguska, Red Bishop and Strike The Gold become influential sires in the breed over there.
