    [QUOTE=MN Tigerstripes;891121]8 year old QH gelding. He'll be 10 this spring. These pics are a little old, but he hasn't changed much. A bit out of shape here as he was not being ridden do to an injury.

    Limbs shorter and stocky, blade has good length although sligthly upright. The back is a good even length and is well supported by a deep girth. The hind is strong and is the strength of a fairly well balanced topline. On teh longer side overall, nice neck set, Western probably suits best.

    Could you possibly tell me anything with Buttercup? She's 11 or 12 and is grade, but thought to be a quarter pony. I barrel race and pole bend her along with a few other speed events and I show her in halter/showmanship and a few pleasure classes and fun shows.


    Very intersting type

    Limbs are longer in relation to height- yet remain strong. Closed shoudler joint providing a very well sloped shoulder blade and very good well set back wither which pasterns also match. Back and girth are both a good/even lengths. Hind length is OK and picks up some extra strength with good coverage of muscle mass.

    Overall is on the longer side. Muscle type is also bulky indicating speed and strength. These are certainly western traits. Apart from this also posseses a number of good english traits like the sloped blade, so a versatile type, and although bes suited to western, some english not totally out of the question. Very good type.

    What do you think of Molly, my 7-yr old OTTB? She's not squared up, sorry, but maybe you can get an idea of her body structure at least.

    A little restricted by photo.

    Closed shoudler joint and well sloped blade giving a well set back wither and plenty of scope for stride extension. Good neck set. Nice even back length (not too long), hind may possibly be a touch lean, which suits this one. Great shading. Surprisingly shorter head. As a racehorse a longer distance type with good endurance. Rarer refined uphill type well suited to dressage and eventing off the track. Certainly has value as an english type..

    On revising photo, I believe hind is strong.
