Thoroughbreds bred for the racetrack are often turned out in a field after they are weaned until about two years old. They usually do not receive too much handling during this time as people are waiting to see how they mature. Generally they can be rough looking with oversized halters and wild manes and tales. However, an individual that knows horses can take one look at them and see who may have the potential to be athletic, based on conformation and even the look in their eye. You may be reading this thinking a snap judgment like that could be wrong. This is true but don't we all tend to do that with each other?

Excellent! I love the composition. Reminds me of some bridal parties I've shot!
