HEya, for fun, I wanted to look at Magic's conformation.
I tried to follow the tutorial, but am having issues- it's all so greek to me. Of all the pics I took, the one I chose the horse was most square- but is a bit on uneven ground. Also, the horse's head isn't held so natural ( wanted to walk forward)
I tried my best to place the dot's correctly, but some may be off.
here is my dot and line pattern:
here is just the pic:
Other pic That the stand is more natural, but the horse is angled a little:
One of him walking: ( which I know is generally not used for conformation, but the straight legs can be judged for how some things compare perhaps... I dunno.)
From what I am seeing and what little sense I am making of it:
Magic is downhill.
If my measurements are right, his shoulder is aprox 40% of body length....
cannons are 75%ish of forearm, so a little on the long side...
Pasterns are 50%...ish.. ( I am using a piece of paper so it may not be the best accuracy...
then I am getting confused with stuff.
Trying the breaking the horse into 3rd's... I am just not sure where the measurements line up, but I don't think something does the thirds, just not sure what.
I am just really new at this, and need to learn where parts of the body are to get accurate measurements and then to understand what I am looking at.
Anybody want to help and let me know about Magic's conformation? I'd appreciate it.
