Sunday Silence (Horsegears opinion only)


Forequarters: Shorter forelimbs, mainly through the forearm, leaving a slightly longer cannon, as compared to the standard forelimb ratio. The arm shoots up at a sharper angle, towards a likewise open shoulder joint. The blade may lack a touch, and is of just an OK length, also with an upright angle.. This combination leaves a shorter distance between the horses chest and wither, horizontally measured. As a result Sundays Silences fore certainly possesses a consistent bias on the side of strength/sprinting ability. Sunday Silence does appear to have very well sloped pasterns, which do not appear to ideally match his shoulder slope. The sloped pasterns do help obtain some stride length from the forelimbs.

Core: The girth depth is very deep, and supports an even/ideal length back. A very good barrel volume is the result. The deep girth matches the strength orientated forequarters. The even length of the back adds versatility.

Hindquarters: A significantly longer and stronger croup provides strength and superior short term power. Aiding Sunday Silence endurance, are his proportions of the lower hind, which add both stride length and a quicker re-coil action.

Distance gearing: (Puff factor) 1200 - 1700m (7 f)

Overview: As we have seen with a number of Champions critiqued, Sunday Silence possessed a higher proportion of strength/sprinting traits, especially through the fore, which provided him ample speed, of which he was also able to maintain and extend of longer distances. His very deep girth provided extended scope for lung expansion, allowing a larger volume of air intake per stride.. Although his core is excellent, his strength appears to come for his powerhouse upper hind quarters, highlighted by a long and nicely sloped croup. The length of his croup is evident by analyzing his topline, which it dominates.
