Odd thing is, I was researching a little about Tiznow on-line today. I've always like the horse; he's one of my favs. And I hadn't seen this documentary before. How fun! Tiznow is just a gorgeous guy. Thanks for the share of this video!
I think Zenyatta and Tiznow are about the same size....17 hands give or take a finger or two.As for the size of a potential foal, I'm not too concerned. At 145 pounds, 13Z was a big foal and Zenyatta had no problems during delivery. Given the amount of care Zenyatta is given at Lane's End, I see no reason why she couldn't be bred to Tiznow.Just the thought of a Tiznow foal out of Zenyatta is exciting. The video and looking up Tiznow's progeny was an eye-opener. I pretty much though like the rest of the Dumplings here that Tiznow was too big. Now, I'm not so sure. I think it's a perfect pairing.
Don't forget the poor beast has to fit into a starting gate. :-)

Indeed, but Tiznow is too big for Z. The resulting foal would mature too slowly
