Poor girl. Good for you for helping her.

I see ringbone and/or sidebone and a wonky knee. But I really commend you for giving her a chance in life.

Do I dare ask what breed she is? Maybe she WAS an orphan and that explains the lack of respect and perhaps the wonky conformation. She may have had major leg problems at birth and they tried to save her.

I wondered if I saw sidebone or ringbone too, but I'm not real familiar with it so didn't want to say and stick a label on her and be wrong. Poor girl! Don't tear up her papers, she's got them and that might make a difference to someone. I wouldn't have gone to the expense of registering her as a foal but since they did, give her her birthright.

Oh no. They didn't do anything with this mare. She is APHA. And severly inbred. They knew what they were doing and when she came out the bad egg they got rid of her. I'm pretty sure that's how it happened. Te guy laughed at me when I called him to get a bill of sale for her. He was like your so stupid. When "line breeding" or "close breeding" you take the chances of getting a bad foal. For instance if you in bred 4 times and got 4 different foals.... One would be a superior specimen a great animal... Two of them would come out average horses and one would come out with all the flaws of the inbreeding and everything. ;( I guess I got the flawed one. But I will continue to do what I can for her!

I am certainly not a vet. I was just pointing out what it looked like to me as a fellow horse person. Hopefully I am wrong.

I'm glad you got her. At least she has a chance for a good life. And if it turns out poorly due to her conformation, she is no worse off than before. So you did a good deed.

I'm so curious now...what's her registered name?

I'm morbidly fascinated and want to look her up on allbreedpedigree and see all this inbreeding myself.

You don't list a location, but you said 'arse' so I would hope that you are English. That club can be fixed by a skilled farrier - however the knee is more of an issue.

Have you had a farrier out, what do they say?

poor baby. That one leg has problems in the pastern joint itself, looks like she has the ocd
Disease they get in their knees, beside being severely back at the knee.
At least you got her from the killer . I know you want to save her, but she will probably just be an expensive pet all her life. Good luck finding someone to adopt her and not try to use her.
This is why I am against heavy line breeding , besides the obvious physical , there could be internal deformities and mental issues .
You should also consider euthanasia as an option , as sad as it is, but it would be better than a life of pain if someone got her and tried to use her .

She doesn't show up on allbreed. Like the guy said, they throw these breedings up to the wall to see what sticks. The culls should go to the killers, so nobody knows about them. The sad thing is, someone who knows nothing could have bought her and bred this on, because they "got the papers on her, and she has champions in her bloodline"!!
