This is Tansy, my 3 year old palomino paint filly. She was a feral horse when I first got her, now she's a dream under saddle and can do it all. W-T-C, stop on a dime, pivot of fore and hind, back up, goes off leg amazing, side pass, and we're working on the roll back. She's great on the ground and goes through any obsticle but she's still afraid of the ball. Doesn't mind tarps, cars, tractors, dogs, guns, bags, and other such monsters. She's a fast learner so she hasn't take much effort to learn these things.You can hold herself in a frame for a few moments before releasing because she doesn't have a good topline yet. I'm hoping to start on doing some hill work and lots of trotting to build up a topline. I waited to do this cause she still needed to pick up weight. She had massive muscles under her neck and I'm basically working on getting rid of those. Its a long process because of the unwanted muscle. I'm hoping that she'll be set in 2-3 months.
What do you think of her conformation?
What I know:
down hill (She's catching up with her butt, it used to be worst but she's still growing, and fast)
Well, I know she isn't the prettiest but hey, she's a spawn of poor breeding, what do you expect :P So yeah, I'm not really good about shoulder angle or pastern angle, and I'm still learning about proportions and such...
So what's good, what else is bad?
(She was still skinny in this shot :/)
