Quick question about pasterns

If 0 is extremely posty, 50 is perfect, and 100 is extremely slopey, what are hers?









Thanks

I would guage her right around 45. Nothing bad, just seem a touch upright.

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/

Hm, her back pasterns don't seem to match her fronts! I'd put her fronts at 40, and her backs at 45.

Well he backs don't match her front because her shoeing is not good... they seemed to cut off too much heel but not enough toe...

but other than that they look a bit short so maybe a 35-40 if 50 was perfect and than maybe a 40-45 if the shoeing/trimming changed.

Very nice looking horse by the way! Love the black coat and blue eye!!!

Yes! Beautiful horse! :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
