    Opinions please

    Hi,

    I have two quarter horse mares, full sisters, Mariah is 16 and Kara 13. I've been looking over their pedigrees and have a few of questions:
    1. Would their bloodlines make them preferred brood mares? Neither one has been bred before.
    2. Is it rare to have Three Bars so far forward these days?
    3. Am I right in thinking they have sound confirmation?

    Mariah is on the left, not the best photos of my girls, but they only side view, standing ones I could find at the moment :).
    Thanks, appreciate your time in stopping and for any and all replies.

    I wouldn't breed either of them. For me, a horse that is worthy of being bred has to be the full package - bloodlines, conformation, health, personality and proven. Your mares only check one of those boxes so far (granted, more information could tick more, but just on the information you have provided). They are not what I would consider correct enough to breed - both are quite long through the back, with a tendency to sway, and both of them have serious flaws in their legs.

    I like them :) But they are a tad long in the back. Nice bums though!

    I agree about the backs and the legs, especially the sorrel.
    Hard to really say about the bay
