    Please Critique Sky

    I havn't officially introduced Sky yet. She is a 5 year old Paint. She only has a year of training but was worked with extensively and so far has made an awsome trail horse. I was hoping she would make a good barrel horse, so please critique away.

    Could you get pics of her on more solid ground? Some thing about her back feet. They look almost clubed.

    I could try but the entire property is pretty uneven. There's not really any flat ground until you get to the paved road about half a mile away. That particular spot she's standing in is a little deep in sand also, so that might be making her feet look funny. I had the farrier out on Thursday to trim her and he said she had really nice looking feet. In what way do they look clubbed?

    She looks a tad chubby to me, but I may just be hallucinating. Maybe it's just her head?

    It's not you, she's definitely chubby but we're working on that.

    She does look camped in, I never noticed that before.

    Does anyone have an opinion on her conformation when it comes to barrel racing?

    How old is she? She is camped under in the hind legs (sickle hocked is the other word for that) and her back is quite flat. It almost has the mildest of hunter bumps in front of the pelvis. That and the way she stands camped under make her look like her back is out or something. But it's not, right?

    Her hind hooves are very upright, and that's what looked kind of club footed, but the soft earth makes it hard to see clearly.
    Her front legs are nice and straight and she seems to have good bone, all around.
    Her neck is set on a bit low, and very much undermuscled, but that might be her youth. Head is kind of big in relation to the body.
    I cannot say how she is for barrels. My knowledge of what makes a good barrel horse is just not there.

    Oh ok. I thought I was going crazy for a second there. What color is she? She looks like a blue roan but I could be wrong.

    As far as I know her back is fine. I havn't had any behavior issues that might be considered pain related either. She did toss her head a lot when I first got her but that has gotten a million times better since I changed her bit.
    Thank you for your feed back. In the very least I can do my own research for what that all means for a barrel horse.

    I was told she's a sabino. I named her Sky because she reminds me of a cloudy day and I assumed all that red in her coat would eventually be gone. Now that her winter coat is coming in she's looking even redder. Oh well, she looks like a cloudy day with a lot of smog.

    I found this picture of Sky from her sale add. She doesn't look so rolly polly and camped under.
