I am aware it is difficult to critique young horses, however I'd like to see how she's come along as I'm a bit biased. I've gotten some odd feedback when I posted pics of her on another forum. I know she has more to grow but want to make sure she's growing properly and all that as she's my first baby. So if you could help me and teach me some more about conformation that would be good. As far as I can tell she is really butt high, she always has been, but she seems to be evening out a little now, she also seems to have a bit of a hay belly and I plan on working on that.
This is when I first met her, I posted this pic on another forum and they said she was club footed in all four and she looked as if she had swelling or epiphysitis in the fetlock of the back right (foot with white sock) also the same butt high thing, and she has steep pasterns, hoof angle is greater than it should be and she was wearing down the toe, and had more heel, Vet came out and gave her a clean bill of health. Saw nothing wrong at all with her. She's 3 months here
This is 5 Months old:
about 9-10 months, she's kinda on a hill here, but its the squarest I have of her at this age:
11 months, these were taken just last week, I unfortunately couldn't take them myself as I was busy with her but my photographer did a decent job for not knowing exactly what I wanted:
So has she gotten better, worse? I know her feet need a trim, but I thinks she's gotten a little bit better, what annoys me the most is that she's so butt high. She had a corrective trimming on the foot with the sock as it was not growing straight, it since has straightened out. Also the "swelling" the others saw I believe is just and illusion from white sock, in contrast to her other three legs.
