However I was looking at her and her pasture mate, the BO's paint colt last night and it seemed to me like they both have a case of the EXTREME FUGLIES. I literally stood for about ten minutes looking from one to the other trying to figure out how they became so hideous practically overnight...
So, fuglies aside, I'm trying to learn what to expect from her regarding conformation. Kiera is a QH/Percheron cross. Her dam is called "Badger's Magic", not sure of the father. I'm looking at her front legs. Do they appear to be "calf kneed"?
If so, what would this mean as far as wear and tear to the animal? I am not looking for anything more than a trail horse and companion, but I would like to keep her healthy. ;)
Also, what else is "wrong" (or right lol) with her that I need to keep an eye on, and for the sake of learning? Again, I'm learning, and I'm aware that she is a) not the epitome of equine beauty and b) that WOW do young horses go through some godawful fugly stages.... 0_o
I know also that these aren't the greatest conformation shots, but please tell me what you can:
*also sorry for the picture quality....the arena lights made the pix turn out really yellow in the first two, and my editing software made the colors weird when I tried to fix it...gotta reinstall photoshop lol*
