Is Babe Long back or short back?
 
I have 2 short back horses and I also am wordering about my other horse Babe here a picture of Babe. If Iam wrong, I think Babe is long back? and will she be able to carry weight or will she carry light weight? http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/4525_Horses_020_1.jpg and here another one http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/4525_babe2_1.jpghttp://www.horseforum.com/userpix/4525_babe3_1.jpg

short backed but i could be wrong

She actually looks very well put-together to me.

If she were any longer backed I think she'd look a little off seeing as how she's a little on the shorter side.
She doesn't look like shes got a short back though. She looks good, well put together.

She's cute!

She's very pretty. :) I think her back is nor too long, nor too short. I also think she looks fine.

She does have a long back.

Gillian 09-06-2008 11:48 AM

I agree with Sara, her back is long.
She's very pretty though.
:]

She has a long back, but not so long that it should overly effect her weight carrying capacity.

What do you plan to use her for?

RFLOL - I'm on my dads computer and the setting is off so everything is elongated so she looks like a painted dachsund! LMAO... I'll have to get on a normal computer to look! teehee....

She looks long backed to me. She also looks weak throughout the back as well. Some topline work would help make sure she doesn't start to get a sway back, and you should really look into it. Because... in the pictures, it kindof looks to me, like her back is starting to drop already.
