Question about leg bones
I'm looking at a 2 year old quarter horse filly for sale, in a some of the pictures provided on her on the breeders website her leg bone looks a little light.
Is leg bone something that can change while they mature? Or if she looks to have light leg bones now will she always have light legs?
She also looks very leggy right now.
The dam and the stud look to have nice enough legs, the stud's owners claim he ads thick legs to his babies...
And previous foals from the dam have done well as performance/show horses.
They say the filly has a great personality, and has been started on light riding. She was born in April, 2011.
I can post pictures later if needed/wanted.
I emailed the breeder yesterday evening to get more pictures of her.
But mostly I am curious about if bones get thicker as the horses age from 2 year olds.
