He looks so much better here. Feet look a bit clubby (or just poorly trimmed) but he has great balance.

He looks kind of small, which is super ironic considering he's actually a giant!

(Unofficial) Lord Nelson

Poor guy been through hell and back with laminitis. Obviously still a work in progress given the corrective shoeing pads and wedges :(

Lord Nelson looks really good all things considered.

It's interesting to see photos of the two chestnuts (Dort and 'Nelson) next to each other. IMHO, Lord Nelson is well-proportioned, while Dortmund looks heavy on the forehand with a slightly large head.
If I didn't know what his pedigree was, I would have never picked out Dort as a son of Big Brown. Maybe he got his iffy hooves from his dad, but where did that tank of a body come from? :?
Battle of Midway is a nice-looking colt, although perhaps just a wee bit long in the back and short through the croup (to my amateur eye).

I do agree about Battle of Midway. Would have loved to see him run again.
As far as Dortzilla goes- I was thinking about maybe his bottom line. At first I thought Tale of the Cat- but he is just under 16 from what I see. I dont remember how tall Storm Cat was- but he was impressive. Could be Dortzilla broke the mold.
