Does somebody wanna tall me what's "off" about her back legs? I feel like the fetlocks are really long and at a sharp angle or something but I am desperately useless for conformation besides "That horse has a nice butt".

She acts like a gaited horse, she's always steady not bouncy, as far as pre-exam I didnt personally she recently has been to the vet got her coggins and exam by the previous owner and has no known heath probs. Yea I wished she was a papered horse at least then id know what she was lol that might explain the pasterns better

Well get her on some flat ground and squared up. Then re take pics :) Cause these ones aren't doing her justice!

Sorrel horse.. in the pics she looks very sickle hocked they are really under neath her and not in line. Her pasterns/fetlock is long, hind hooves very upright . Hind legs fetlock/pasterns like this is seen more in a gaited horse, Paso's. Maybe even TWH or Fox Trotter. But I have seen it in Paso's .

Lol well crud, yea im going to have to honestly I think if she was more squared up she wouldnt look so "slopy". Ppl on the other forum had me kinda leaning toward Quarad but now im looking at pasos....hum this mystery might never be solved

And if you can, can you get a movie of her walking and trotting? Curious to see how she moves..

Yea I plan to get to that, been trying to work with her everyday...shes almost bomb proof really. She's onery when you go to catch her but once you got her she follows like a puppy. As of now...mind you I just got her friday but when you ride her she has a fast walk and its really smooth. Like I posted on the other forum her previous owner just took her on a 12mile thru devils den in arkansas said she was just the best horse you could be on in a place like that.

Upon further inspection and a lil reference into "googling" sickle hocked photos I can see where she looks it in the photo because she's not squared up but I don't believe she is...and if so its just slight. I think her pasterns have something to do with her specific breed (which as of now is unknown...heinz 57), looking more into pasos. I will post more photos soon.

I can't say more than what the other posters said about her confo but her fetlocks appear to me like she could have DSLD/dropped fetlocks (a degenerative disease often seen among Pasos, like the other posters referenced) in her hind legs... Hopefully not, but if her hind fetlocks really look like that in real life I would get her examined by a vet ASAP. Not to scare you, but DSLD is extremely painful for the horse and not one of those things you can kinda ignore. :(

Here's some info for you to look at in case that would be helpful:


She looks super sweet!! And I love her name. :)
