    I know a few of my points are off, but I would be interested in hearing what someone else sees. I don't have a way of doing the angles on this computer, but did the measuring with a sheet of paper and tick marks lol. You would think a seamstress by trade could at LEAST locate a tape measure . . . Oh well.

    I'm not sure how old Emma was in this photo, it was taken before I got her and I don't have a more recent one decent enough for conformation. I'm guessing she was 3 or 4 in this one and she's 5 or 6 now. Not really sure of her breed, some Appy, some Paint, some Arab possibly and my brother thinks some Walking horse going from how her back end moves. :) Whatever the combination I enjoy riding her lol

    So, here's my girl.
    So far it looks like she's a little long in the neck and her shoulder angle is a little less than ideal but overall she looks ok. She is a really smooth mover (not as smooth as my other mare), and she jumps really well.
    What do you think? I'm not sure if I put the points in the right places...

    Wow this was a lot of fun.
    Unfortunately I' am horrible at math and can't understand it.
    I took a picture of my horse and I measured him, Used the box effect but that didn't work. I don't have a protractor so I played with one online.
    But I can't add measurements into fractions or angels.

    I used a measuring tape and string on his body instead
    The length of body just almost 77
    The length of scapula is 25
    The length of humerus is 14 1/2
    The length of (Point of butt to hip, to stifle) are all 19 1/2.
    I could use a little help. The point of his hip though was tough. Its right inbetween three spots more so to the left of the spots if that helps the view

    Newbie here :) I've been enjoying learning about conformation from this tutorial. I don't have a horse to feel anatomical landmarks so some of the locations might be off. Can someone tell me how I'm doing? I need to head out but can edit to add my interpretations when I get back.

    I only have access to a computer at work, and they wiped off our paint program, and of course limited us from downloading anything. If anyone has some free time on their hands, I would really appreciate if someone would do this tutorial on my mare! If not, no big deal. Just thought I'd ask.

    Thank you!

    Welsh Cob yearling



    Okay, so here is a guy I am considering purchasing. He's a yearling (just shy of 12 months) so measurement critiques might be a bit harsh on his still growing body, but I gave it my best.

    His box is slightly taller than long, but I feel this is typical with youngsters. He is also a bit bum high (children).

    So I got a body length of 554
    Shoulder is 38% of body
    Humerous is 66.6% of shoulder
    Shoulder slope is 55.05 degrees
    Shoulder angle is 83.7 degrees

    For the Foreleg are we measuring elbow to center of knee, or center level with elbow and straight down?

    His cannon bone is 77% of his elbow to knee measurement
    Pastern is 45.97 degrees

    Illium is 33.3% of body (spot on minimum)
    But to Stifle length is 92.2% of illium
    Pelvis is 91% of illium

    His back is 46.5% of body length (if I put the dot in the right place, I'm not too sure)
    Rib cage is 95.3% of back length (also, depending on other spot)
    His neck is 48.7% of body length

    Any other comments? Does he look even for a yearling?

    My boy Zeus! Am I right in thinking his neck is crazy long??

    Body: 672

    Shoulder: 273
    40.6% of body
    (no less 1/3)

    Humerus: 160
    58.6% of shoulder
    (50-60%)

    Sh. Slope: 60*
    (40-55*)

    Sh. Angle: 87*
    (100*)

    Forearm: 179
    (close or longer
    Than humerus)

    Cannon: 121
    (67.5% of forearm)
    (>50, <75)

    Pastern:56
    (46% of cannon)
    (30-50%)

    Hip: 231
    (34% BL)
    (>,=1/3 BL)

    Femur: 213
    (close to hip)

    Pelvis: 181
    (close to hip)

    Back: 204
    (44.9% of BL)
    (<50% of BL)

    Loin: 321
    (157%)
    (98% or more BL)

    Neck: 408
    (60% of BL)
    (30-50%)



    Also, his left front hoof is clubbed, does that make a difference?
