Your mare doesn't have very good conformation at all, like everyone else has told you. the good thing about the long back is that she streches far when she runs!! <<No Ma'am completely wrong. A long back is a weak back. She will have problems with this. She doesn't look like she could/would be in very good shape to run her at all at this point. I won't even start to tell you why breeding her is a bad idea because obviously by now you've made you mind up about it even if it's not smart to. I will say, in general, it is clearly not a good idea at all to be running barrels on a bred horse. Especially trying to get her back in shape after being out of the game a while. At ALL. Overall she doesn't look like she's in a very condition to be seriously worked at any level.

I am curious to see what your mare's parents look like.

One thing you can do that I have learned from an equine osteopath to help her back, would be to take the handle of a hoof pick, and run it along her belly (not light pressure, but definitely not a lot of pressure either). This basically stimulates a particular nerve that runs along the belly, and she should pick up her back a little bit with her muscles. If you do this every day, that will help her supporting muscles grow, and in turn support her back better. I have actually seen a horse's sway back pick up about six inches to the point where the sway was barely detectable over the course of six weeks.

Well, at least you bothered to read the first sentence of my post eh? Too bad about the rest.

Frankly I don't see the difference between hopping from forum to forum and "simply asking other forums" - I don't want to drag other forum drama over here but you go to one place, post the exact same thing with the exact same pictures, and then leave in a huff when you don't get responses you don't like. Lo and behold, you are getting the same responses here (keep in mind that you're not the only person in the world who has accounts on multiple forums). To me it's on par with a child going and asking Dad when Mom says no. It shows an immature attitude and an unwillingness to accept the truth. Grow up a little honey, it'll do you some good.

Best of luck to you and your horses.

First you breed a mare b/c she could not be worked? Not a good reason to breed. Then add in the fact that she has less then good conformation and you are using a stallion who does nothing for her and if was any other color would be a gelding. Then people wonder why we have a over population problem.

All I will say past that is I hope you keep the resulting for the rest of its life.
