    Holy long back, Batman!! My horse is long but that's just insane. I also see a weak loin and she looks a little herring-gutted... not underweight as such just needs muscle and is built sort of like a greyhound (not a good thing in a horse, limits heart and lung capacity, but she'd be fine for most things... just maybe not eventing and other such highly strenuous activities).

    Other than those three things though I really quite like her. Lovely shoulder, nice hindquarter, neck fits the rest of her. I like a chunky, archy neck, so her neck is not for me, but it's not a bad neck... just not to my taste. Nice face, neck ties in a touch low but that's a paint thing. She is quite likely at least a little bit downhill in build, but you're right that ground does not look level, so it will not be flattering her.

    She's a year younger than my boy :)

    Long back, wasp waisted?, nice shoulder, love her head and neck. When her feet are back in shape I'd like a look before commenting on her legs. I am not sure about her hip.... kinda slinky because of the back maybe?

    She looks like a nice calm girl though and that is ALWAYS a plus in my book :)

    I have a mare with a long back and we call her our limousine horse. LOL!

    Your rescue is a sweet looking horse. I am not a conformation critic so I will not comment on anything. Looks good to me except for the long back.

    Many have touched on her conformation so I won't say what stands out to me there as I tend to agree with most. But, I noticed that she does trace to Impressive... do you know if she is carrying the Impressive gene? I'm just asking because depending on the results, she may be affected by it at some point. I know some horses never have an issue and then one day poof.... it starts affecting them.

    I think she is referring to HYPP, a genetic problem running in the Impressive line.


    Horse HYPP

    Yes, that is what I"m referring to :) HYPP. Sorry, my brain is jumbled today.

    I also noticed the Impressive but I don't think this mare looks like a horse that would carry the HYPP gene... she looks too slender, not really "solid" enough. Horses with HYPP, regardless of whether they are N/H or H/H, usually have lots and lots of heavy muscling. That's why some of the less reputable breeders specifically breed for N/H, because it's the look that does well in the halter ring.

    I'm not sure about looks but I think if I had a horse that was a descendant of Impressive, I would test no matter what...that way I know what I could be dealing with instead of it sneaking up on me.
