$300 rescue mare, 6 months later, opinions on conformation?
"Rescued" this mare for $300 from a couple that had too many, couldn't feed them well, too busy to do anything with them, etc. Had rain rot, was thin/ribby, was hard to tell much about her and she wasn't what I was really looking for, but couldn't leave her there and now I'm very happy I got her. She is coming 4yo currently.
My question is...as I'm a new horse owner and not well-versed in conformation, what is the general opinion of her conformation and do you think she looks built to make a good barrel/pole bending horse?
Also, do you think now that I've gotten some good weight on her that I need to back off a bit...ie does she appear to be putting on too much weight now?
