She looks surprising like Isabelle (who is my Fox Trotter) right down to the color and baby belly! Except I think Izzy has better legs and a sweeter face. But it's scary how much a broody TB can look like a broody Fox Trotter, isn't it? Compare the shape of their withers/back/hind end. Scary!
Either the first photo posted of her is extremely unflattering, or this photo of her is extremely flattering... or more likely, the "real her" is probably somewhere in between--
I am still not fond of her knees, and her head is a bit plain, but everything else about her is better in this photo--and I am glad to see a broodie in such good weight, especially a TB-- it can be tough to keep them this plump!
PS-- I genrally LIKE short cannon bones-- sounder, and make a better stride.....
I suspect her knees look knobby because she is an older horse and has been carrying alot of weight, being a broodmare and all. I have a 30 yr old gelding with knobs and lumps all over his knees that gives a similar impression. He wasn't like that when he was younger.
How old is this girl anyway? Izzy, my mare that looks similar, is 16.
