I agree. I don't know what it is about him, but I'm just not a big fan.


Perhaps it's just the odd juxtaposition between the large stallion and the seemingly very short fence. The proportion just seems all off.


I know that its hard to get some stallions stand a certain way, but

The front legs need to be a bit more together, one forward that much more than the other makes him look unbalanced

The lip chain and the fence isnt doing him any favors either.

The front legs on Tu Brutus are not positioned ideally in the photo.

Edit: Ha, I didn't see serenassong's post when I made the comment.

The following photos are from Taylor Made Stallions Twitter page: https://twitter.com/tmstallions?lang=en
None are official, professional conformation shots, but were taken when the stallions were shown recently.

'Chrome doesn't seem to ever take a bad photo, and IMO it's because he's a naturally high-headed and alert individual. When the horse has his head raised on a long, arched neck, it just makes everything look better. ;)

Midnight Storm’s neck ties into his chest and shoulder weirdly. I ❤️ Mshawish, he’s awesome!

Helps that he's pretty well conformed, too. But yeah, he always seems bright eyed and bushy tailed, and that goes a long way. He's so lovely.

I wasn't too keen on Not This Time's conformation photo, but I still think he's a nice-looking individual.

Not This Time and Mshawish are both very handsome horses; I don't think photos do them justice.

I agree...all of those photos were just shots taken when the stallions were being shown, and the photos are not professional conformation shots. But I enjoy seeing stallions in more natural views such as when they are walking or moving around in their paddocks, so I like all of these photos.

I know Arrogate was a tremendous racehorse and he must have a runner's body to have done so well, but...
I'm sorry, but IMHO he's a rather unattractive horse. :oops:
