if i remember right, this is the mare that has some age on her - I don't think she's overly long in her back, maybe just a smidge.

I forgot to tell yall that Babe is 17 years old and I was going to use her as as pleasure trail riding and lesson horse and do a slow barrel racing. WHen I bought her they told me that she will make a good barrel racing horse.

She's long. It looks weak but that could be due to her age and lack of exercising? What do you do with her?

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

going by conformation measurements i think she looks fine. as said already she looks quite well put together really. if her back is long it is only by a smidge which shouldnt hinder her.

if you want to check for yourself go to the sticky at the top of the critique section entitled 'tips for critiquing' or something like that. it has a chart that helps with determining conformation.

at first glance, her back looks long but the more i look at it, its more her withers that make her back look long. if her withers wernt so prominent and 'long' she would have a perfect back. i think she will be able to carry weight just fine.

I agree that she looks well put together. I don't see and obviously long back. I see a lack of musceling that the others have already mentioned. I just wanted to add that she is a really cute horse.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I agree with everyone about her back being neither too long or too short. I really don't like her lack of muscling at all. Was she too thin and just got her weight back, or is she just like that?

Long back and drooping belly. She needs to loose some belly weight and tummy lifts daily might help. Exercise will help build up the top line. For what your looking at doing she would be just fine. She's flashy!!!
