    Maddy's Conformation, how does it look?

    Ok so I took some pictures today and she was SOOOO hard to get to stand still and squared up ... as you can tell she is in the middle of moving her hooves when I snapped the pic. And she is on stall rest right now (has been for about 3 weeks) so she is kinda crazy and wasn't happy that I was taking her picture lol. I hope that they are goon enough to give a good confo shot tho ... on her back left it looks like she lost a shoe in the pictures but she didn't .. it's just the angle/light.

    I would like to say I am sorry she is so dirty and furry .. I am a clean freak but right now work is taking over my life.

    Also, does she look fat to anyone? She is really furry so that doesn't help but what do you guys think?

    Stats:
    TB
    16.1 Hands
    5 yrs old
    Off the Track a year and 4 months ago
    I am training her for HJ

    Thanks!











    A head shot for good measure:

    She's cute. Built a little up hill. She could use a bit more topline. She might be a little cow-hocked and a little cramped under in the back. She has thick pasterns too

    She definitely needs more muscle. Her toes are a little long and I can't tell if she is just fuzzy but her legs look a little puffy which is to be expected on stall rest...

    So her pasterns look think but it's all hair ... lol ... I was totally serious when I said she was furry ... and since she is on stall rest (per the vets orders) she stocks up a little ... this week she is getting walked 30 min everyday and tomorrow she will be allowed to have a paddock as well as the stall so that will help circulation.

    How do you suggest building more top line? (i want to make sure that I am doing the right thing)

    What do you mean "cramped under her back"?

    Thanks!

    Yeah she is puffy cause of the stall rest ... and hasn't been worked in about 3-4 weeks(she had a stone bruise and then did something to her hind right leg so the vet said stall rest and hand walking for a month, and it's been a week since he said that) ... I am hoping that she will be good to go in the next 2 weeks.

    She doesnt look fat to me. Maybe even a little skinny.

    What I mean by cramped under:

    When you draw a line from the hind quarter straight down it should go straight through the hock and the back legs, but with her the legs are a little ahead of the line. Does that make sense?

    Oh, and to build up top line try to get her to round her back and collect herself. That normally helps build top line, but building topline muscle takes a lot of time
