Please critique Pharist Dancer - owner wanted her shot

This is Pharist, a TB mare that came to my stable cause we took her after her owners wanted to put her down (I dont know why)

She has a rather weak back, so we are lunging her untill its strong again.

She's rather pretty, but Id like to know what you all think...

she looks like she could be pregnant. She's cute though. (could be just a hay or wormy belly).

Her back does not look 'weak'. Are they sure she does not have something actually wrong with it?

Conformation wise she looks to have a very upright shoulder. Not usually a good thing.

She's not pregnant, she was just overfed, and underworked where she was, as her owner was scared of her... she's lost some weight though...

We had 2 vets check her over, as the owners told us she had kissing spine... she doesnt. Her back is weak because of to much hard riding apparantly. I found this out when I rode her, she couldnt handle my weight. And Im pretty light, only 44kg's...

She is a pretty girl even if her confo isn't perfect. I certainly don't see anything worthy of a death sentence. She looks like a sweetie.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah me too. She actually is very sweet. We got her cause her owners were afraid of her, and thought she had a spine problem, so they wanted to shoot her. So I said I'd take her in :)

She is very pretty. Good for you for taking her in. I sort of did the same thing with Hunter. Glad to see she will have a good home. :0)
