Family resemblance


I spotted the picture on the left in the AMHA photo archives. My jaw dropped. Looking at it, I would swear it was Ray. As it happens, the horse in the photo is Moro Hills Adonis, who is Ray's paternal great-grandsire AND his maternal great-great-grandsire as well. And it was taken when he was 4 years old, the same age (more or less) Ray was in the photo I took. So there's a good reason for the resemblance.

There are some differences, of course. Adonis is longer in the body than Ray, and lacks that rounded barrel that is so characteristic of Bessie Nekomia's offspring. Ray's legs are a little heavier, and his neck is too, I think (hard to tell given the angle of both photos). Adonis's forehead is slightly broader. But the differences are minor.
