I dunno...they are nort perfect, but I don't think they are too bad. If she were mine,(and she was a great performer with awesome breeding) I'd go ahead and breed her to a stud with ideal pasterns.

They look neither long nor sloped to me. This is why I reserved judgement on them in the first post, because there is such a dramatic change in their appearance now that she is on flat ground. Though it would be much easier for me to get a good idea of how they correlate with the rest of her body with a full body shot, they look good to me.

Here are some shots I tried to catch while bathing her Friday night. (The last two of her tied outside are from 6wks ago... she looks like a totally different gal, doesn't she?! )
