I am going to look at this horse, what do you think of her conformation wise? She is a four year old throughbred mare.

He has a pretty big head, but that's perhaps just the pic
For the rest, I think it's a beauty!

Lol, isn't that the one that was super over-at-the-knees?

This is a pretty bad photo to judge confo. She's in shadow, on sloping ground, with a distracting background, is in wraps, and not squared up.

Just looking at that near hind leg she's got a nice typical thoroughbred hind end (I'm ignoring the splayed out leg). I don't like how short her back appears to be (I think it's the big withers and slope that throws my eye off) and how big her head is in relation to the rest of her body. I think she has a good slope to her shoulders.

Personally I'd say nay and look at another horse. Then again I am picky when it comes to a horse I want to compete on.
