Are we looking at same pic as the chestnut i am looking at although striking looks dipped backed...or he is so high whithered and bum high (if a youngster) he just looks this way at min. Is he not a tadge too light through body for a proper welsh cob too?
Haffy you are right the chestnut didnt have the best conformation but he was very striking and had a lot of presence. The class was actually for Cs and Ds I would say he was the only C in the class, hence being smaller and lighter.
Some friends I made in a field when on holiday in the Peak District recently:
Bored and inquisitive, came over to say hello
This one was really friendly
And really pretty
All pose together now
I REALLY liked the dark dapple grey and still think about him lots now.....finally decided that I liked the names Merlin or Cassini for him.
On a side note, is it acceptable to feed other people's horses in fields? My friend had some Polos, but I said it was best not to give them as the two greys looked quite young and might get bad manners. But I felt bad as they came over to see us and didn't get anything apart from some pats and cooing.
Hmm I agree with you, I personally wouldn't mind, but I know some people at the stables can get very funny about it, especially if their horse has a habit of nipping, so best to avoid. I'm sure they loved the attention, their araby heads are gorgeous. Edit: I feel like I should add to the thread. This is the only horse I get to see. He commands my entire attention life! Look at his fat grass belly
I would agree re. the feeding. I don't tend to feed other people's horses for the same reasons, altho its hard to resist temptation sometimes as you feel so mean! Also sometimes if theres more than one horse there can be a bossy one which will maybe bully the others to get to the treat! The exception is when I come across a horse in the middle of nowhere when out walking in the dales, its obvious there's not going to be enough people coming past feeding titbits to make them nippy so they sometimes get a bite of an apple or a mint.
Saw a gorgeous dun the other day but had no camera with me!

Bee Movie: According to all known laws of aviation,
there is no way a bee should be able to fly.
Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground.
The bee, of course, flies anyway
because bees don't care
