I'm tentatively (and when I say tentatively I mean very tentatively) thinking about this pony if this new job works out as I think it will, something about her draws me in. But one of her front legs looks strange, and I'm 90% sure it's her leg, not the photo, because it looks weird in two pictures instead of just one. Thoughts? (She's 2, if that makes a difference).
(General critique is welcome as well, although they aren't conformation shots).
Ooh, she looks to be awfully tied behind the knee, and the name of the taper in her cannons escapes me. They're nice and short though, which might balance it out a little, I'm not sure. But those legs look fragile, so you're right to be concerned. It definitely isn't just the angle of the photos.
Yes, tied in below the knee. Bowed tendon, possibly?
When a horse injures his tendons, they can heal back and look like this. It can, apparently, happen if the horse was bandaged too tightly, had poor conditioning, poor farrier work, poor footing, or direct trauma to the leg (like my neighbor's horse whacking his leg against his cart and busting the tendons clean off).
