I was talking about his face. It just reminded me of that photo.

At long last, Normandy Invasion has a decent conformation picture up, since he’s now at Spendthrift.

Just by way of contrast, here is a yearling pic of him.

Couldn't find a yearling photo, but did come across his 2yo conformation shot on Eddie Woods's website.

The Malibu Moons do seem to be hunks...or chunks, depending on whether you like that look. :lol:
And they must be easy keepers, because I don't think I've seen a slender one. :P

Someone should tell Claiborne that, because they seem to be stuffing poor Orb with grain over there.

All Claiborne's stallions are fat.

Holy ^*^* :shock:
I know Orb is a young stallion, but he looks like he's out of shape, middle-aged and starting to get a sway back. :oops: :(
But very shiny. :P

Call me crazy, but I don't think Orb looks that fat. His neck is huge, but that's not uncommon. He looks a lot like Malibu Moon and the A.P. Indy tribe tend to get swaybacked, often at a fairly young age. They also tend to let down quickly and carry a lot of flesh.

Case-in-point: Stephanoatsee. He is 9 years old, 1 year older than Orb.

His face reminds me slightly of Justify's actually, although J's head is bigger and Lord Nelson's slightly more refined they have a very similar eye shape.

"Carry a lot of flesh" = fat. Stallions, even older stallions/AP Indy descendents (Stephanoatsee included) shouldn't look like that.

Whenever I see a Claiborne stallion my mind goes to the images of Secretariat in the 1980s when he was a founder case waiting to happen.

He looks like he should be pulling a Budweiser wagon.
