The TWH has to be the best dispositioned horse in the world to put up with the horrible things they are subjected to.  The big lick horses look beautiful (to the uninitiated public).  They should come to the barns after the show when the horses shift from foot to foot because it is painful and some of them just lay down because of it.  The worst of the big lick horses I ever saw in person was a horse named Crystal Ball.  He squatted so much in the back and had so much front action that he looked like a frog trying to climb out of a glass.....................mb
