    With her toes pointing out a little her fetlocks sometimes interfere a little- it looks a little like she is paddling. It isn't much but I prefer to protect her legs.

    It she was toed in she would most likely be a little bow legged not interfere at her fetlocks.

    She is a nice stocky mare, she has a bit of upright short pastures which is better then long ones, and it seems as though her back right I think it was fetlock looks puffy. What are your goals with her as that may help people critique her as each discipline needs a little different conformation.

    She looks awesome. Really sweet looking and stocky. What are you planning to do with her. It would be nice to know so that we can comment.

    Here is and answer to the above two questions ...

    Her hind legs always stock the next day after ridden or if I can't get her enough turn out time. The barn I am at only allows you to turn out while you are there and I work full time so it is hard to get her out for as long as I woudl like.

    Sorry to double post but I wanted to add that she has been x-rayed in the hind and they are 100% clean

    That sucks that your barn won't let you turn them out alone. It is very difficult for alot of people.

    If you are planning to jump with her, you will do good. She has those muscles on her hind legs, which show she has strength to propel herself upwards.

    What exactly do you mean by her hind legs stock?

    They just get puffy(goes down when I ride or she gets hand walked- and ideas as to how to help it? I have asked on here before but no one had any ideas other then turn her out more, which I can't do) ... we hand walk her or let her out in the turn out as much as we can (being that I have 2 horses, I ride one horse each day, I work full time and it gets dark by 6:30 and is about to get dark sooner with day light savings- some weekends I ride two a day when I don't have too many lessons to teach). When I can't get out to ride her, the hubby doesn't know how to ride but he is a rock star at hand walking her or turning her out for a bit while he watches

    It sucks that we can't turn out and leave her b/c I was turning her out in the AM and then putting her up at lunch. I may talk to the BO and ask for a special privilege.

    I just wanted to say that I've always liked this mare, she is possibly the best looking TB I've ever seen (IMO, don't anyone jump on me for this) There is something about her back in the third picture that I don't like though. Anyone else see it?
        10-30-2009, 03:46 PM

    As to the back, maybe more muscle? I am working on that with her and have been doing lots of trotting. I have had a Chiro out twice to see her and they said she is aligned right. Maybe I need to have them back out again
