I'm aware that they're rather crappy, and am fine with any input that I get ^^ I just don't have access to an area to take photos right now.
annaleah- I agree that she is thin, we've had quite the time keeping weight on the poor gal! We've tried senior feed, rice bran, you name it. She's a bit better right now though not too much. And the undermuscling is due to not being worked very hard for very long due to her legs.
If only she were perfectly sound, eh? The original purpose for buying her was to breed her, but we decided against it since she didn't have the best of conformation dispite her demonstration of good speed and endurance. That was really the only reason we bought her with such severe injuries. Once that fell through though we broke her to saddle (she was an absolute terror when we got her, flipped over backwards multiple times, refused to enter any type of arena, hated everyone) and introduced her to our program. She only does two lessons a week but its enough to earn her keep, so we're happy.
Ofcourse, that was a good ten years ago, well before I came out to the farm. I'm amazed that she's as sound as she is, only going lightly lame every 8 or 9 months if she's worked on too hard of footing.
