    Just for fun

    This is my ArabianxSaddlebred Flicka. She's 8years old and has a wonderful personality (most of the time haha). I know she probably has a lot of faults but I love her and she's a great horse. But I just wanted to see what you guys had to say about her!
    Just a side note, I haven't had her long so I'm working on getting her in shape with more muscle and she is a tad on the chunky side.

    She looks to be in good weight and I can tell she is well loved.

    She has a decent slope to her shoulder. Length of neck is good, but she has a bit of a ewe neck and her muscling is upside down. Back length is ok, but her coupling is a bit long and she needs more muscle to her topline. I think she might be built slightly downhill, but it could be the way she is standing too. She is quite lightly boned and tied in below the knee. Pastern angle and length looks appropriate (perhaps a bit long). This horse needs its feet trimmed.

    I'm no good at confo, but she looks like a sweetie(:

    Also am I the only one seeing a club foot on the back two feet? Somethings off about the hooves.

    Yeah she's due for her trimming this week, so that may be what's throwing her feet off, I'm not sure.
    Thanks guys!

    Did you actually see the sire and dam of this mare? I ask, because Saddlebred x Arabian is a popular cross and the offspring don't usually look like your girl. She actually reminds me more of some TB crosses I've seen.

    I think her worst fault, is her poorly placed and ewe neck, with some major over-developed lower muscle. She appears to be club footed in the rear. She is also a bit downhill.

    She appears in very nice condition and probably a quiet girl. I like her pleasing expression and eye.

    No I didn't see her sire and dam. The lady I got her from said the lady she bought her from got her from North Carolina somewhere.
    Thank you!

    Hmm. If I were to guess, I'd think her possibly a Saddlebred x TB. I have seen necks like this on poorly bred Saddlebreds. She does seem to have those Saddlebred type ears.

    But there again, if she is a sweet girl and what you want, it really doesn't matter what she is.
