    Take away the super huge baby belly, and add a bit more cannon, and while she would still be quite unflattering, she would look alot better proportionally. Yes, she is quite plain, and conformationally a train wreck, so personally I wouldn't breed her, even with her bloodlines in count...you get what you breed. But she may make a good trail horse.

    Sorry, I didn't mean anything cryptic by that. What I meant was, she didn't look like a TB. I thought maybe she looked more like a Standardbred, because the ones I have seen have been chunkier (than TB's anyway). It was a dumb comment in hindsight!

    Everyone is being pretty hard on the girl. She isn't a looker, but she's been bred a ton, so she has an excuse for her figure.

    I was surprised they wanted to much for her, but I know nothing about TB broodmares, so maybe that is the price to pay for an entry-level broodmare if you are looking for one. I would have no idea because that's not my area of interest.

    >>>> 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.

    Can you post a link to the craigslist ad? Now I am curious about how they got that pic on craigslist.

    The only way I found her equinenow ad was that I rightclicked on the picture you posted in the OP, which turned out to be from the equinenow ad-- https://www.equinenow.com/equine/dat...s/323537_1.jpg

    So I searched equinenow with the ref number 323537 from the picture's URL ^^^, and she came right up.

    Never mind, I found the ads on the Lexington Craigslist-- must learn more html and figure out how to remote link a picture on craigslist! LOL

    PS.. they should have used the other picture...
