    This is my 8 yr old paint mare. She is currently unrideable. But what do you think?

    He is put together very well. He looks like he would be a good cow horse. His hooves are long, but that can be fixed. With some more exercise he has the potential to be greatly defined in his shoulders and hindquarters.

    She's cute as a bug!

    I don't know if it is just her coat; but it looks like she has a hint of rain-rot.

    No rain rot.I took this pictures right after it rained and for some reason her hair gets curly when wet. And the marks you see are sweat marks from her blanket. Her hooves are ok, we are having problems with them so they are a work in progress.

    What do you think of her conformation wise?

    She looks a bit top-heavy.. bigger in the neck and shoulder? Other than that, very cute!

    Overall what jumps out at me is the straight hind legs and upright pasterns coupled with the bugger shoulder and front end. She has a nice shoulder and good short, strong cannons which I like, and I think with the right exercise and training, the potential to muscle up that hind end rather well. Keep an eye on those hocks as they are rather straight which can make them prone to arthritis, however depending on what you are using her for and how hard you are riding, it may not be much of an issue.

    I'm sorry to hear that she is unrideable at the moment - what happened? And I hope she is well soon!

    She stepped on a nail 6 months ago and is slowly recovering, next weekend I should be able to ride her a bit.
