I don't think I've ever read that Dynaformer needed 'sturdier' sons. Seems like his boys have plenty of bone in those tree trunks...I mean, legs. :P :lol:

I have to wonder how Exterminator, Kelso or John Henry would have done. Probably not extremely well, but... this is a thread to make you go 'hmm...' :D

Forego was a great gelding, but he was gelded because of his forelegs. He would have been so heavily built in front he wouldn't have been sound to run. I saw him close up. His pasterns would never have held up.

I've read where Señor Luro considered gelding Northern Dancer

Northern Dancer gelded? :shock:
That would be an interesting thread: What if the gelding HAD happened?
What would the breed look like without any Northern Dancer blood?
