Arabian mare I am thinking of getting...

Just wanted to ask your opinions on her. I would like to use her for endurance. She is pregnant, stud's name is Shahdeen

stj Shahdeen

I asked for confo pics, and they sent me some. She looks kinda scruffy and I think needs more pounds, but the price is right. Do you see anything glaringly wrong with her, that would make her unable to go the distance, so to speak? What about the foal? Will it be of decent quality? Thanks for any help or input guys!

I will try and right the pictures. Sorry. I am Macintosh challenged. They are upright when I open them on the computer...

She has a veryy long back and ewe neck. She also looks to be toed out in the front. I'm not sure if she would suit endurance...

Thanks and Gig'em!

I thought ewe neck bulged out underneath, looks too me like a skinny under muscled neck. I'm defiantly not an expert though. Thanks for taking a look!

yikes, that stud has one hell of a parrot mouth.
What were they thinking? X.x

The foal COULD come out looking decent, or it could inherit all of the flaws of the parents. There's no way to tell until it's here... but what a gamble...

We drink to our youth, to the days come and gone; for the age of oppression is now nearly done.

It's when the underside of the neck is longer than the top, sometimes creating that bulged effect depending on severity. It is definitely under muscled and very skinny. Maybe she isn't ewe necked, but something is off haha

I would definitely pass on this one. I bet if she lifted her head higher that it would bulge on the underside (especially if she had more groceries and muscles). If this is her current condition, I hope she isn't foaling this year, it is obvious that she isn't getting proper care she needs to nourish a developing foal.

No, supposedly next year. Call me a sucker, there is something I like about her. I think she is goofy looking, but I have a real soft spot for Arabians. They have not actually checked her in foal I guess, but was covered two months ago they said. I think some of her looks are situational. I will link her original sale page, that has some pictures. I guess they never updated when she was sold.

She is the filly on the bottom of the page.

If that really is the same horse, how did that gorgeous filly become the train wreck in the pics you posted?!

Ask for better pics. Those are crap to do a confo critique on. They're too small and the one side-on is too far away to see anything other than that she has a long back, her neck looks like sh*t and her shoulder looks almost vertical. Not even going to comment on the other two pics.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
