>>>She certainly isn't built for speed, is she? Perhaps a Standarbred in her younger days? Perhaps not. >>>>ha ha I am so confused by this statement! Ha ha am I missing something? An inside joke maybe lol. If this horse is a thoroughbred she could never be a standardbred in her younger days. They are two totally different breeds. Appologies if I misunderstood what you meant ha ha
Plus, Standardbreds ARE built for speed.... Trotting or pacing rather than galloping, but speed nonetheless.
Whatever they meant, the mare IS a registered TB, and was certainly bred for speed.
The ad I found did not advertise her for riding, just as a broodmare-- Well Bred TB Broodmare & Companion Ready TO Breed Early
And in the ad they mentioned she had just weaned her this-year's baby and also mentioned 3 other previous foals.
I did some checking and she has had a foal in '04,'05,'06,'07,'08', '09, (all officially-- registered) and according to the owners also 2010, so she has been a little busy being a career broodmare to have kept her girlish figure, LOL.
I would not expect her profile to look like a conformation winner-- having 7 foals in row can change a mare's conformation and balance. I hesitate to judge broodies' conformation as compared to a standard that could be met by a fresh, fit young performance-ready prospect. Its not fair to the momma, really.
