From what I can see in the pics, the heels aren't really overly short but rather look slung forward and the toes long. The long toes and too much time between trims is one of the main culprits of this. If your farrier is good and will be trimming on a consistent schedule, he will be able to correct this over time. Once these are corrected all of her angles (legs, shoulders, etc) will improve some.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Might be - but without knowing how fast her feet grow its hard to say. I have a horse here who has to stay on a 5-6 week schedule or he gets under slung heels and flaring.

If it was my horse I would put her on a 6 week schedule until I got them under control and then try 8 weeks after that and see how it goes.

She's only had two trims here... and when we brought her home she was definitely long in the toe. But I am going to have the farrier out in six weeks anyway to do the draft because he developed a crack and has to have front shoes. Thanks for the advice, btw. Just letting you know that I am listening. : )

Wow, Im not trained in the ways of conformation, but I like a balance horse. And both MArio and Sophie are that. With the exception of that belly Sophie has, and yes, I really am with u there in the pregnancy suspicion... But even tho MArio's butt is a little sloped. He's STILL built nice (IMO) and just a gorgeous little fellow!

Sophie has a pretty face, and besides the belly and awkward leg angels, still very nice! She is NOT ugly! He should be able to help with the pigeon toe- like Cat said.

I'm thinking the pigeon toe might be the way she is standing. I went out and looked at her today, had to get a udder shot for someone on my facebook who was interested... lol.. but she didn't look that turned out in the front...

The attachment is a pic of her just standing in the field...


And thanks Wheater.... I'm going to get some shots of Angel and Boss but I'm not going to ask you guys to critique Annalie because I know my Haflinger is FAT! lol And I know that's all I'll hear.

O dont feel bad about the fatties, lol! My gelding Buck is super fat right now, and my mare has been broken this year and she has been ridden and lost her hay belly! She looks beautiful! But when I first started her in saddle, I was just dropping stirrups to get her used to the feeling, and I was watching for flinches (rewarding her when she didnt flinch), and it took me a few second to realize she wasnt flinching anymore, her chub was jiggling, lol! And now I see Buck and I think, WOW! U need exercise!
