    Thanks guys, was starting to doubt myself! He is a meat and compact little horse but I or no one else has ever thought/commented that he was freakishly short backed! IMHO there was some pretty odd judging going on however I guess you pay your money and get their opinion! Lolo, how did Reg get on?
