I hate to criticize horses who were very successful, but Tamarkuz' neck looks either short or just odd.

I think it's the way he's standing.

He's not stood up as well in my pic as he is in the official pic (and mine is also 10 months old), but he definitely has a short neck. Just not quite as awkward as in his conformation pic.

Part of it is that he has a lot of muscle on the underside of his neck and not much up top. He could use some dressage work. :lol: But yeah, I think he'd still be working against his conformation.

Nice shot of California Chrome in Chili.

Chrome looks beautiful. Relaxed and not needing the chain in his mouth. Good to see. Word is he's been well received in Chile and is doing his usual professional job covering his mares. Thanks for posting the photo.

I'm always so pleasantly surprised by how nicely put together Chrome is. I've always liked him (a lot, if any of you were in his Belmont thread...lol), but he sure is a handsome fella.

Is it just me, or are Anchor Down and Karakonite both standing on a slight hill? I don't know, it just seems like they're not getting an even surface to show off on. Or they're both very similarly butt high.
