His topline and tail set are pretty reminiscent of his Arabian ancestors, as well.
He's a gorgeous steed. 8-)

LOL I read that as Silverware and expected to scroll up (I'm reading from most recent first) to see a gorgeous grey... not displeased by the hunka hunka bay boy at all, though. :lol:
His sire Silver Frost (IRE) certainly fits the first description.

Silver Frost is quite striking. But I still prefer his son. ;)

New one for Orb (Malibu Moon). Not sure I like this new style. Kinda feels like a downgrade...

Wow they did War Front dirty with that photo.

Mastery and Algorithms look nice though.

The background is too dark for bay horses and with the tree it's too busy IMO. Algorithm's looks ok but the lighting in the last three is awful.

Does War Front have special shoes on in the front? His hooves look strange to me for some reason.

Don't know if it's new or not but I saw that El Kabeir was in Ireland at stud so I looked up his conformation photo. I really like him! He has a lovely coat and a very kind eye.

It's hard to tell. Besides Algorithms, none of the Claiborne stallions pictured really seem to have heels, they look really flat footed in front.

There's not really any consistency with Claiborne's photos.

Look at these compared to Ironicus's and Lea's. I know Ironicus's photo has a lot to do with the fact that he's a light gray, and that affects lighting (and he looks better with that background), but dang.

Also can they go a little lighter on the oil?

And yes Carole, that's been shared before, but El Kabeir is a really lovely boy and IIRC he's been fairly well received.

Claiborne's conformation pictures have been bad for a very long time. I feel like the last time they were good, Tony Leonard took the photos.

Looks like he has easy boots on. I have used them for years on one of my broodmares. They are basically little rubber boots with a tread on the bottom, the farrier glues them on. They are great for horses with bad feet, thin walls, thin soles etc, or just sore-footed horses in general.

I like his coloring but the equipment is making his head look weird.
