    She has a cute face...but something seems off

    This little filly has an ADORABLE face, but something about her conformation is just off to me...what do you think of her? What would she be good at?

    LOVE her badger face! However she has a Frightening hind end. I think she is best suited to be a pasture puff... Truly, IMO, she is build to not stay sound, sorry to say.

    She has one of the steepest hips I have seen, coupled with sickle hocks and lack of angulation through the rest of her hind end. She almost looks misshapen in the rear. :(

    I wouldn't touch this horse with a mile long pole. This horse is very badly conformed. Horribly! She's a vet bill waiting to happen. Ugh, the poor thing. She's overall, a mess.

    They'd be lucky to give her away. Noone will pay $2000 for that horse.

    Such a shame. That hind end looks like a completely different horse.

    Big nose, Short thin neck, huge body that is poorly shaped. Mutton withers...or...NO withers. Steep croup. Horribly weak hindend. Looks like it's about to collapse. Too short of cannon bones in the front legs. Sickle hocked in the back legs. High placed hocks.

    Ya I agree with tryst, its like her hind end and front end are different horses. She may have a sweet face but the rest of her makes me want to run for the hills!

    Cute face, but weird looking back end. Her front end almost looks to young for five and then the rest of her body is weird. I also think she is a bit under condition which adds to her looking extra weird. I think she would be improved if she had more muscle and more weight on her (particularly the hind end). Very straight hind legs and her heart girth seems a big weird. That said I don't think she would hold up to any much more strenuous than the occasional walking trail.

    Does noone but me think she needs about 300 lbs? Poor thing, I could hang a hat off her hip bones and use her rib cage for a xylophone! And yes, her confo looks awful.

    My dang ipad would not show me the body shots....but good luck to them selling an unregistered horse to a show home. For $2000.

    I don't know about 300 lbs, but I agree she is thin. I think he hind end is conformed in such a manner that no matter how chubby she gets her hips will look sharp and pointy due to the angle they sit.
