She is a sweetheart! Thank all, tinyliny, we wondered about mustang too, our friend has one who is the spitting image of her from ND, and we are just 12miles from the ND border.

And she is in foal due aug/sept to a QH.

She's a very cute little girl and good for you, to have rescued her. I have not idea what breed/s she might be and it doesn't really matter. I would hope that the stallion she is bred to, might help with the rather major confo problems she has.

What are your plans for her?

    01-04-2012, 06:53 PM
She's going to be my trail horse, no plans other then enjoying her and letting her have a wonderful life.

The stallion had strong pasterns/legs, and a short back. I am assuming that's what you meant for her conformation problems ?

Not really. It looks to me in the pics, that she is back at the knee (chair legged) and very straight in the rear. (post legged) Could be the way she is standing in the pic. Also, put your hand over each part of the first pic. She seems to be a lot more horse in front, than in the rear. You will be able to build up that rear somewhat, with work up hills. Could be she is just still out of condition.

Something else I noticed - and I could be all wet here. Have a look at her rear in the pics. Do you see, just under her tail base, a tiny indentation? It shows in both pics. Have the vet check her vulva. I had a mare years ago who had this same look and she needed a Caslicks procedure. On your mare, it could be just a condition problem, but just in case, have the vet check her for that.

If you don't know about that, have a look here....

Vulval Conformation, Common Vulval Injuries and the Caslick's Procedure

Please don't be offended in what I have said. Some or none of it might be true, but I'm just saying what I see from the pics.

She is a nice, stout little horse and should be a good companion for you, for years to come.

Not offended at all, I have been in dogs for years and have a tough skin . Her pasterns bug me a lot! She is nice to ride though.

I don't find her lacking in the rear in person, but I understand what you are saying from pictures. And hills ? LOL. We live in the prairies NO HILLS!!!!! Lol any other exercises to build up her butt ?

I will go read the article.

Weak pasterns, such as she has InStyle, usually make for a very nice, comfortable ride. As long as she isn't used for hard work or sudden stops, they should hold up pretty well.

By the way, when I say 'chair-legged', it's the same as mostly called 'calf-kneed' in the US.

Lol I was wondering about the chair legged lol. Thanks for clarifying!

No, nothing fast, she gets to be a much loved, trail horse

And from the sounds of it, she has had at least 5-7foals and she is only 9-12.
