This is Vanna, a 4 year old Thoroughbred/Arab cross. She will mainly be used for trails, and she is the mother of Griffin (His confo thread is here Conformation Critique of Griffin... ) Please just do a general confo critique, my friend was just wondering how she is conformation wise. We know she is cow-hocked, but that is about it. Thanks!
Long in the back, good shoulder angles including the angle at point of shoulder. Looks butt high and a bit back at the knee. She does not look cow hocked.. just normal toes slightly out behind which is desirable.. horses with toes straight ahead behind are horses that are bow legged.
Not a bad horse but not spectacualr either. Looks sound enough and looks like she could really use some gymnastics.
Neck is set high and her girth/chest should be deeper
Front legs look good
Long in the back
Nice, rounded hindquarters
Appears somewhat sickle-hocked in the back legs but I cannot tell in those pictures if she is cow-hocked. It doesn't look like she is.
I like her. Her back is long, her neck is a little long too, her shoulder is nice. She just has a long body and long bodies fit some horses and it fits her very well. She is a really nice horse. Some times when Anglo Arabs are bred they don't come out looking very nice, but she did.
Does her star look so much like a horse head in person as it does in the picture? Lol She is decently put together, long back, long neck, and possible sickle hocks, but she carries what she does have pretty nicely.
