Please critique potential buy...

6 y.o. 15.3 dapple gray registered Thoroughbred mare. She's never been raced. Just looking to get opinions on her conformation. The pictures are not the greatest, I know, but please do the best you can. Thanks!

She seems a little too chunky to be a thoroughbred. I see more quarter horse in her.

OP, the pictures are really too small, but what I do see is a rather straight shoulder, and there looks to be something going on with her hind fetlocks. I don't like the way her neck ties into her body, either.

There are chunky TBs out there. I happen to have one. Not all of them are long and lean.

What about this guy? Do you think he has any QH in him?

Secretariat, right?

Yup, Secretariat. But since he's much beefier in this picture than when he was racing, he surely must have some QH in him, right?
equiniphile and mystykat like this.

Well since QH did come from TB it would be common to find some TB that are heavier built. But I do agree I don't particularly like her hind legs nor how her neck attaches. She seems thick and longer and in my opinion I don't find her to have a very attractive head. But on the plus she is more stout then your average tb and has a descent bone. What would you want to do with her?

I don't like her back that called coon footed? Also a very straight shoulder, and possibly ewenecked?

He's bowlegged in the back , it seems to me, his back feet shouldn't point straight forward as they appear to.

Allot of people think Aidan is an appendix or a WB, just big an chunky TB.

I like her, she looks nice and stout. BUT I have a huge problem with her back pasterns.

Any chance of making those photo's a bit bigger?
Those hind legs are very suss.... unless it's just a couple of bad shots.... I would not touch the horse with a 40 foot barge pole if you intend on any kind of a serious ridden career with her.
