    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.

    Even if she isn't quite so bad as that first pic makes her look, I still wouldn't call her broodmare quality. More than the short looking cannon bones, there is something about her legs that just really turns me off but I can't put my finger on it. Not to mention that she has that uber deep chest (not a bad thing, just looks funky combined with everything else), tiny short neck, and ginormous head. It looks almost like her front end has been photoshopped LOL.

    THANK you for SOMEONE answering my earlier question.

    Certainly well bed on top but the dam line is not as good. Not so sure that even a TB breeding farm would be interested as there are better bred mares out there.

    If she hasn't overdone it in the breeding area she would be a passable mare for a start up TB breeding farm but the big names would pass her over.

    Her legs are stubs and she is obese!

    I think she is pretty though but the poor girl doesn't look tb at all.

    AND i'd like to add let's not forget all tb's aren't bred for speed. Maybe she was homebred. There's TB breeders who breed entirely for specific riding styles other than racing.

    Hehe well the ad I found was on craigslist and was not so detailed ;] Just a bad picture methinks? Looking more closely at the first photo, her front left foot is turned in, which kind of gives that knobby kneed look, and that isn't visible in the other photos.
