Kentucky Pattern

The Kentucky group of patterns seems to have spurred from the Jersey group and is similar in appearance and form. The presence of ears or lugs is required. The poll is distinct and weighted and may be curved or straight. The bit is curved and concave from toe to heel. The cheeks are more elongated than in the Jersey group, causing the angle from lug/beard junction to the heel to be of a less degree than in a Jersey, and far less than a Rockaway.  

(As always, please remember that there is significant variance in the patterns made by different manufacturers, and this description is merely a guide for assistance in identification.)
