I want to learn about conformation, and I study these forums like crazy. So, to help me learn, I thought I would post some pictures of horses I have rescued over the years and say what I THINK I see. Then can you guys help me out?
I know I am bad at necks and the really detailed stuff like how long cannon bones are. Again, please kindly let me know if I am wrong and any other faults. Help me learn conformation!
Lulu- At the time she was 4 years old, 14.1 hands. Arabian mare (as if ya couldn't tell
). I hated selling this mare, but she was literally too small and fine boned for me to ride. Still regret it though...
Alright, so she is sickle hocked, neck ties in a little high, and a steep shoulder
Lena- At the time she was 9 years old, 15.1 hands. We were guessing a TB.
This is practically the only picture I have of her....and I can't see anything to glaringly wrong...maybe? She is built downhill, steep shoulder, sickle hocked, and toes out.
And finally, Stella. At the time these pictures were taken she was about 7 years old. 16 hand TB mare. She was my baby for 4 years until a nasty, nasty injury stopped her riding career.
She stands under herself, narrow in the rear end, long back, neck ties low and her one front leg sweeps out (not sure you can tell, but it definitely did)
