Horse critique.

These are my two horses, I took the pictures this morning from my cell phone so sorry about the quality. I was just curious what you guys thought of them, conformation-, color-, cuteness-, and whatever else-wise. =]

This is Ricci. 17 y/o Paint mare.

This is Gracie. 7 month old QH filly.

If you want/need better pictures, let me know. I really do what your input, and I'll go camera mad to get a good one for you.

The first horse is very pretty,, but has a sway back. The second horse has a downhill slope, but very nice horses! Why is the poor paint's tail's cut off!?

Hmm... I was told Gracie would grow out of the high booty, her siblings did, and that it was a QH thing, so hopefully it works out that way, lol.

And Ricci's tail... about 6 months ago she got her tail caught on something, and yanked it hard enough to break the skin, and then one day, I found a thick chunk of her tail, still attached to the scab from her dock, laying on her stall floor. It just looked goofy to have the white part long and thin, so I cut it.

I don't see a sway back on the paint mare really... I mean. Maybe slightly? But not bad, I don't think.

As for the baby, yeah, she'll grow into her butt. It's a QH thing. ;]

They are both very pretty. I love Ricci in yellow! But I think I've said that before. Lol.

Wish I had better critique, but I'm not very good at it. Lol.

They're cuties!

I do not see a sway back either. Long back with pronouced withers - yes.

Colt - Butt high and evening out is what stock horses do as they grow. Not liking his front legs. Long in the pastern.

That is true, she seems to have rather long front pasterns. What do you want to do with her when she's old enough?

Those front pasterns on the bay are quite scary.. not sure if she'll grow out of those.

I'm in love with the filly! She's sooo cute! I have a thing for bays that I jut LOVE lol

Gracie does have a her rear much high, but I bet she'll grow out of it. Ricci does have a little bit of a swayed back, but my horses do too, what horse doesn't.

Very nice altogether !!

Yeah, I never thought of Ricci as sway-backed, just long-backed with high withers. Plus, she's 17.

I never noticed Gracie's pasterns... I just plan on riding her, I don't show. I do dressage at home, jump, go on trail rides, maybe the occasional schooling show, but I'm not really into them. I was just going to see what she liked.

What does it mean for her to have long pasterns? How will it affect her?
    04-17-2009, 08:42 PM
Long pasterns can be injured very easily compared to normal pasterns. It means (if she doesn't grow out of it, which I doubt she will) that she won't be able to do anything too strenuous or she might injure them - no big jumping, no really quick turns. Think weak ankles.
This is just my opinion.
