    Zenyatta: Her name is Lightfoot Cat Dancer.

    Kayella: can you be more specific..?

    Maybe looking to buy. Just perusing the market right now, and trying to hone my conformation judging skills.

    Sure. She's got a decent shoulder angle, depending on what you'd want to do with her. She looks tied in behind the knee, and her back legs just seem off to me but I can't put my finger on it. Her neck could use some muscling, and should tie in a tad lower on her chest. I know nothing about gaited horses, so I can't gelp with judging that. She's very fine boned. She's not horrible in terms of conformation, but she'd definitely look alot better with some muscle tone and some more weight on her. :)

    I don't understand. From what you've said it sounds like she needs muscle and weight. Why is that a reason to not like her? Lol

    Muscle and weight will help her look better, but it won't fix everything. Her front legs are the main issue. She's tied in behind the knee, which means she's fine boned. Nothing can fix that issue. With the problem, she can be more susceptible to injuries if you were looking to do jumping. The impact of landing causes alot of stress on the bones.

    Oh no, no jumping. Walkers are a bit awkward for that anyway.
    I trail ride, and ride saddleseat when the whim strikes me.

    Oh well then she should suit a trail horse just fine :) She just needs some groceries.

    I thought she had some potential. I just have to decide what the crap I'm doing with my current horse.
