She Looks Off...

Ok...so I do not own her, nor can I afford a horse now but I like to look and see what's on the market. Springtime makes me horse crazy every year with all the foals and yearlings around. Something about this filly just looks off to me...she appears like she slopes "downhill" if that makes sense.

For future reference when I can afford a horse...what do you guys think of her? Your advice now will help me out later!

She doesn't look very healthy in the first 2 pictures, the bottom two she's skin and bones!

Yeah. Craigslist probably wasn't what I should have been looking on today...see my other post in horses for sale about the whole mini herd.

Well she'd definitely be a little project to rehab

The downhill look is quite common for growing horses. They grow with their butt first, then their withers kind of catch up before the next butt growth. To know how she should mature you would need to see how her sire and dam are built.

She looks a little slight in her butt as well. I agree with Sunny, there is nothing wrong with this young a horse being butt high, they grow in spurts back, front, level out, repeat, lol. For a show filly, she sure hasn't been taken care of. All the weanling halter foals I've seen look way different than this little girl.
