Lately I've taken some interest in learning to evaluate a horse's conformation and suitability for a certain discipline (Dressage in my case). Sometime way off in the future I plan on adopting a BLM mustang. I go to their internet adoption site off and on to take a look at some of the horses being adopted and play something of a "judge the conformation" game with myself. There's two in particular that I thought looked pretty good... to my semi-trained eye.
If anyone's got the time and would like to, I'd like to see what you think of these two. Do you agree that they look pretty well put together? What are the good things/bad things you see in them? Another question I have is whether they look like they're at the right amount of development for their ages (one is a yearling, the other is 2 yrs).
You'll have to excuse the muddiness/shaggyness... they're wild so they haven't really been groomed for show. ^_^ If you click on the images they'll get bigger usually.
