    Then her back legs are perfect :) I've just started taking a equine selection and judging class this semester so that I can learn more about conformation! I guess it's just the front legs you need to worry about toeing out... Now that I think about it, the toes are probably usually turned too far out only if the horse is cowhocked. Oh well, I'm learning! She is really pretty!

    I think she's lovely. :) If she comes up missing, don't check in Michigan... ;)

    Nice shoulder slope, short pasterns and short back so she should be pretty athletic. She could use a little more in the butt to balance the front end. I would not recommend anyone to breed right now. The horse market is flooded with unwanted horses....too many of them.

    Just want to clarify, I am not looking at breeding her in the near future. I was just wanting to know if she would be worth breeding. She is a great mare and I would love to eventually have 1 baby by her. Thank you everyone. I appreciate everything everyone has said.

    The mare's front is very nice. She is tied in behind the knee. The issues start with her hind quarters. The entire pelvis is set back too far and is too steep creating a weak coupling. The femur is too short placing her stifle a bit high and the angle is too shallow due to the placement of her pelvis. This is coupled with a long tibia that goes to a nice, large hock that is over straight.

    The placement of the pelvis and its angle force the entire hind leg to be placed too far to the rear and the lack of length of the femur and improper pelvic placement and angle create the posty hind leg.

    I like her neck placement and her shoulder. She has a kind eye and a pretty head.

    Remember, no horse is perfect. This horse is better than most. I do wish she had a stronger coupling and a different hind leg structure starting with the pelvis placement and angle.
