    I plan on heading down to a local rescue to take a look at some of their horses. They have an OTTB that I plan on looking at, and I'll try to get some legitimate confo pictures while I'm there, but this one is all I've got right now.
    Tell me if it's not really useable and I'll wait till I can get better ones.
    I've been looking for a horses to train as a jumper.

    It isn't a great shot... But I like the look of him anyhow. He has nice looking angles, a nice short loin, a good topline. I might prefer him with a shorter cannon, but his are not too long. How old is he?

    I know, and I apologize for that. :( He is 6 years old.

    The hock/back leg is super straight. I mean OVER straight. Odd.

    ^^ Agreed.
    His back legs look super weird...I would not suggest this horse to pursue jumping or any high-imapct sports, it reallly doesn't look like he will hold up. :(

    I think he's standing oddly in general... It also doesn't look like the photo was taken at optimal angle for this sort of thing.

    He may be staight behind anyhow, but I'm not sure he's as bad as this photo appears.

    Thank you guys for putting up with the awful photo. D: The rescue is a bit of a drive away so I just wanted to make sure he didn't have an glaring flaws that would end up with me having to come straight back home.
    I think I'll call them up before I go and ask about his hinds.
    Thanks again.
