Got it, MB.

I keep looking at this horse. I think why I'm finding her odd, is because she's more horse up-front, than in the rear. Putting my hand over each half, they don't match. I also think her neck and head, seem too large for her body, which is fairly shallow. The owner definitely needs a new farrier. I do like her expression and the front and rear shots. Nice colour and markings too.

That first picture makes her look extremely uphill. Then you look at the second picture, and not so much.
May I ask what the blue circles around her eyes are for?

Nothing. She was just decorating her.

This horse ahs extremely fine legs and is back at the knee. Her hocks are small and round. She is straight from behind and straight from in front tho with that wide chest I am sure she does not travel straight and probably flips her feet out to the side.

She also has some lordosis as that is the "odd" dip behind her withers coupled with a high neck set.

I have drawn a line to show she is built slightly up hill and another line along her back showing where "normal" would be. If she was squared up behind she would probably be level.

Yes this mare is heavier up front which will make it hard for her to work off her hind end doing rollbacks, etc. She may want to turn more on the front by swinging her hiney around. But if she's got a good mind then she's a good first horse. I don't think she would be good at jumping due to the front/hind mismatch.

Thanks everyone,
Elana, I think she may have lardosis. I don't thnk its the angle or how she is standing. I didn't notice the over at the knee until you mentioned it.

I am going to show her these and show me the heavier in the front thing. I will her jumping may not be her strong suit. :)

Thanks for all the comments. :)

She cannot be a Quarter horse because she is a tobiano, which does not exist in the quarter horse breed. It's far more likely that she is Paint bred, but not registered
