Shea's Misty

Shea is having computer issues and asked me to post this for her.

Misty confo.jpg

Body length: 6.7cm
Shoulder length: 3cm
Humorous length: 1.6cm
Shoulder:Body length 45%
Humorous 53%
Shoulder slope 57 degrees
Shoulder angle 80 degrees
Forearm 1.6cm
Cannon Bone 1.1 cm
Ratio 69%
Pastern .5cm
Ratio 45%
Illium 2.3 cm
Femur 2.3cm
Pelvis 1.9
Illium:body lengh 34%
Back 2.8cm
Rib 2.6cm
Back:Body length 42%
Rib:body length 39%
Rib:back length 93%
Neck length 3.6 cm
Neck:body length 54%

Shoulder is a little steep - she really does have a horribly rough trot, but a wonderfully smooth paso fino and paso corte. Haven't seen her at paso largo. She's a touch weak in the hip, a little longer in the back and neck than we we would like?

She's not actually long in the back - but she does have a weaker back. The LS placement is too far back, and she has a long loin. (Any ribcage length less than 98% of the back length is indicating a too long loin)

Her neck is a bit long, but probably more against her is the shape of it. The fact it appears to tie into the shoulder in a "nest"

Her forearm is nice and long, but her cannon would be stronger if it were shorter. Nice pasterns.

Her shoulder and her back are her weakest points, unfortunately.

No, the other way around.

The LS is marked by the green dot - it's the point where the back ends and the croup starts.

The point of hip is going to connect to the other blue dots I've marked to create a triangle.

So, first I wanted to thank kmacdougall for suggesting GIMP. I was so confused at first, but a quick google search and I think I figured it out (the basics anyway). Before I start calculating, can you check my work?

Edit: I think my knee dot is a little too high and my one on the withers might be slightly off. He was hard because he's so dark...

I just noticed that you used the bell boot as your coronet dot... the coronet is actually lower down.

Yeah, I wasn't really focusing on the legs because he's not standing well at all. I didn't even mark the back legs... I kind of just marked what was semi-closeish. Thanks, I'll try now.
