For Madame Col. The Great "Merlin"

Trust me, this photo of Merlin was not easy to come by.  Although a tad "straight shouldered", I suggest the secret to his fabulous success and magic in the bull ring was his "short coupling" and "hip" which most likely came from the quarter horse side of his pedigree.

One of the great ones. Sometimes in spite of comformation they achieve greatness. Then that shows you what we know about what is good and what is not.

Madame Col.
Probably because we can not see the heart, it is given no conformation consideration.
