PHO­TO­GRAPHS OF BIRDCATCHERLINE HORSES

EQUUS - - Stock & Trade -

Is­in­glass and Teddy are closely re­lated to Phalaris. Teddy, a re­li­ably prof­itable choice for mid-20th cen­tury Thor­ough­bred breed­ers, dis­plays the heavy muscling and rounded topline typ­i­cal of the Bend Or fam­ily. The tall and lathy Is­in­glass, on the other hand, de­spite be­ing in­tensely in­bred to Bird­catcher and Touch­stone, takes af­ter his tail-fe­male an­ces­tors of the Herod blood­line. While Phalaris is some­what soft-backed, long-bod­ied and short on the leg, most cham­pi­ons of his blood­line are more cor­rectly con­formed. Mr. Prospec­tor in par­tic­u­lar stands on sub­stan­tial, cor­rectly-ar­tic­u­lated legs and is over­all a very har­mo­nious in­di­vid­ual.
