I agree. I can honestly say, I don't recall ever seeing a horse like that.

What is scary is that it is a pregnant 2 year old mare. The owner is saying that the roach is due to poor feeding while growing up ( heavens it is STILL growing up) and hasn't a clue that you just don't breed conformation disasters like this.

Which is why we have so many poor quality horses that end up in places and situations that no one wants to think about, and brings down the value of good horses.
