Okay, my husband were up in the barn tonight and got to talking about our Desperado V grand-daughter, KD Lady Ann, and how sometimes her back looks rather swayed.
She has fantastic bloodlines, some of the best, and she is gorgeous.
We had a lot of advice when buying her and feel great about her purchased (in June this year), but sometimes I do think her back it a little swayed. . .sometimes it looks quite level.
I wonder if it is just that she was stall kept and had little exercise with her owner and breeder in Lexington for 8 years.
Also, if she was truly swayed backed, would it not always appear so?
She is currently in foal to a Magnum Psyche son, and we are excited about that, and then we get to talking about her back and I wonder if it is something she is going to pass on, etc.
What do you all think?
Here are photos of her when it looks, to me, quite fine
these might just be position, of course
Looking maybe a little either high withered or swayed back
she had lost a bit a weight here, but has since gained the condition back - so the rump is more rounded.
I admit I rely on advice for conformation until I know more about what to look for. . .
So what do you guys think?
Here is the SE Arab filly we have, and she has the straighter back of the two, though finely bred, not nearly so well as Lady Ann, I do seem to prefer her back, but she has been outdoors all over her two years and more tone all over, I think.
