    Opinion on conformation

    These horses we no longer have. The sorrel gelding is now deceased. I was just wondering what are the highs and lows of their conformation and what you think they would be good at.
    They are both wide-chested and wide on their butts, and I can also say the sorrel was 16hands and fast, while the palomino mare is about 15hands.

    Oooh I really like both of them, especially the pali. Kinda hard to judge confo from those two pics of her, but I like her neck, maybe a tad long in the back,she has a nice hind end (from what I can tell) but she has slight bone for such a beefy mare. Looks like she would have done really well in halter at some point in her life. The gelding looks very functional. Nice bone, nice back (looks like he was a bit older in these pics?) I really like his hip and his back legs from hip to hock, looks like he probably was nice and under himself. Nice neck, they both looks a bit upright in there pasterns also. Overall, I really like both of them conformation wise.

    I much prefer the chestnut. The Pali has a short neck in relation to her long body, her haunches are overly beefy and tie in too low on the gaskin (for my liking), her bone is too light for her size.

    The chestnut is pretty nicely built,. Even he is a bit light of bone. But his porportion I prefer. Actually, now that I look again, he really isn't light of bone.

    Much prefer the sorrel. I agree with Tiny on the Palomino mare; oddly proportioned and weirdly beefy. Probably a Halter horse ;)

    The sorrel looks like a good ol ranch horse, though does look a bit sickle-hocked or maybe just camped under a bit. He reminds me of a friend's Saddlebred mare.

    Cute faces on both of em :)

    Ok, thank you everyone :)
    I don't really have any more pics of the sorrel, but I'll see if I can get more from another computer. And for the palomino, this is a video I made for her a while back, it probably shows her conformation the best.
    Also I'll post their pedigrees, just because I'm also curious as to how good they are
