Withers are a bit muttony and her neck is thick anhd cresty (check her for thyroid and/or Cushings after she folas... I am inclinced to think possible cushings with that crest). Conformation is typical Curly.. sturdy and light draft looking. Nice horse.
Typical Curly? There is no..."typical Curly" build. The breed has a HUGE variety of shapes and sizes. There are the Warmblood types, this mare is more Draft type, my boy is Stock type, they even have pony and mini Curlies. You get my point...
This mare does have flaws, but overall, I think she is a lovely girl that is going to be sound, sane and capable throughout her life.
- Long Back
- Weak Hindquarters
- Very high tailset
- Thick neck
- Steep/Upright shoulder
- Nice set of legs, great bone to them, nice and straight too.
- Her topline looks like it has definitely improved in your care. It looks very good, especially for 18 years old...and heavy in foal...As well as considering how many babies she's had previously.
- Everything else I haven't mentioned.
I really like her. She is a nice girl and your taking great care of her. I can't wait to see what the baby looks like!
