Duffy- the camelhorse!
Okay -breathes- Do you worst guys -puts hands over eyes-
I have a comparison one, from June, I can put that up too as she's put on loads more condition!
And I didn't brush her... and she's just had a hooly in the round pen.. lazy owner ;D
And this is the four week point, my 5'2 mum has hold of her, you get to appreciate the height haha!
I'm not adept enough to critique quite yet, but holy tall horse! How tall is she?
She is, we think, 18.1hh minimum!!
What do I see, well personally:
A very strong looking head, some may call it clunky, but I like, it, and she has a nice look about her
A little thick through the throat lash and her neck looks just a little short to me, leading into big withers, which is either a bonus in that you are unlikely to get saddle slip, but at the same time can make saddle fitting a problem.
I like her shoulder, nice front legs but maybe just a tad upright through her pasterns.
She looks nice and short through the back, and has good girth, but her strong front end is not balanced by a good backside!, to me she just kind of runs away through her loin and butt, down through very straight back legs, but her pastern angles look a little better than the fronts.
Overall nice looking girl, and certainly BIG:shock::wink:
Neck is a little short, and I'll get a better picture to show you GH, when I bought her, neck was upside down, all the muscle underneath and was solid like a rock! She's starting to get better topline, but because of the condition I bought her in (homepage ;D) she's still got a long way to go with her bum. My trainer did say she didn't work her behind properly, and was already over tracking by 15cm in a walk, she's having to learn her bum can be used to work, its not a dirty word haha, and we're getting there.. 5 months I've had her, and she's been working properly, I'd say, for about 3.
Pastern angles... is this going to be a big problem??
Very typical of the "OLD" lines.
Sire is ?
Donnerbube from Donnerhall Spyder :)
She has very, very typical old lines, her greatgrandsires on her mother's side are Paradox/Fruhlingsball and they are particularly thick set ;D
Glad I'm not going crazy.. there are old lines and modern lines!
what breed is your horse? it remembers me our tall "Selle Francais" for sport (jumping, dressage)
Westfalen, she has Oldengerg and Hanno lines in her fathers side.
