    Foal
    Old time conformation - just for fun

    While going through old pictures for my grandfather's memorial. I found a stack of snapshots of some of the horses he used to own. He raised QH's for about 20 years. Here are a few shots from back in the 70's. I would love to find out what happened to some of Cindy and Sis's foals. They were 2 of my granddad's favorite broodmares. Deck was Sis's sire, and was bred to Cindy a couple of times (and had the smallest ears I've ever seen! Lol). What do you think?


    The first mare is Cindy
    The stud is Deck Otoe Supreme
    And the other mare is unknown.
    The foal is Sis Zan Deck

    The stallion has VERY upright pasterns. So does the 2nd mare, and hers are incredibly short as well.

    The stallion looks alright except for his legs. He's too fine boned for his size, really needs more foundation for all that muscle mass.

    Cindy - a bit lightly built all around. Feet look long overdue for a trim in that photo. Not a great photo for a critique.

    Stallion - nice presence about him, but as Disaster pointed out he is far too upright on his pasterns. I suspect he was also straight on the back end. What events did he do with his horses? This horse looks halter bred.

    The unknown mare looks clubby on all four feet and is extremely straight through the hind end. Head and neck look out of proportion, but could be camera distortion.

    Foal is cute, but looks like it would have the same upright pasterns as her Dad.

    Foal
    Agree with what the others said,

    But also the third horse down is very over at the knee

    & the foal is very bum high, even for a foal

    I'm not sure what Deck was bred for, but halter wouldn't surprise me. I do recognize several names in his pedigree. Http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/deck+otoe+supreme

    The stallion was very well bred for the day:
    Deck Otoe Supreme Quarter Horse
    It is hard to tell if his pasterns are too upright from the angle of the photo. A lot of Quarterhorses had short pasterns and stays sound. I like his pedigree and that is likely why he was used. He is not bad at all. Lots to like about him like his bone and his shoulder.. LOVE his shoulder.

    Cindy looks a bit racing bred. She sure needs her feet trimmed. She is a nice mare. Reminds me a lot of one I had.

    Unknown Mare is a bit buck knee'd and quite straight through the hocks.

    Sis Zan Deck is cute and looks to be a daughter of Deck Otoe Supreme.

    A few more of Deck's babies...2 fillies and a colt.

    I remember my granddad always like the hips he threw.
