I think the closest I can describe my girl is.. a giraffe. Lol wish I had the right pic to show it. Look at a giraffe and that's my girl and her withers.
It's nice to know there are others out there who have horses with such giraffe like wither problems too.. it looks like she goes from hump to neck and nothing in between. Her withers are her neck almost.
She's also got that gaited build so I don't want a saddle that drapes down her front legs/shoulders and hinders her movements when she's picking her front legs up high while doing a rack. I'm thinking a treeless saddle might be a good direction to head in. Gaited saddles are a bit too expensive for me right now.
Regardless of what she looks like or how other friends tease me about her ( good naturedly).... she will always be beautiful and perfect to me.. I just have to find the right clothes for her
P.S. Don't mind that wooden structure she's running alongside.. those are NOT spikes in that picture..they are T -posts waaaay far back towards the field. Nowhere near her.
