Could This Be One Of The Worst Confo Ever?
Ima Stoli Too, 2006*AQHA*Bay*Mare (in foal) - for sale
^^no actuall offence to that mare, but that ocnfo is horrible. her neck is weird, her back is short, and to make it worse she is PREGNANT! She has good bloodlines I think, but I hope her foal doesn't look like her! SOmthing about her feet bug me too......... but I can't quite tell. Anyone else have any bad confo horse pics?

How does she hold up her huge head with that tiny neck?!
Ohh I betcha I can find worse :)

I've seen much, much worse...

Things I do like about her: she's got a decent shoulder, trim (though lacking muscle) neck, short back. She's got a plain head, and I'd prefer to see a bit more femininity, and refinement there, but it's not roman nosed, or extremely grotesque.

Things that I wouldn't want to pass on: Her rump is the biggest one, her legs aren't the greatest either.

When ever you breed, you are going to pass on the horse's confo, good or bad.

I don't think this will be a really appropriate thread...unless the pics are yours or you have permission from the owners they probably shouldn't be posted here.

Oh my gosh that paint! :shock: talking about bum high! is it really possible for a foal to be THAT bad?

The mare in the OP is not bad at all. She is a race bred mare that is not in great shape but is built like a QH racehorse. If you don't like her then don't buy her but there is no reason to knock a horse that has a really good pedigree with two producing parent and no real conformation flaws. She may not spark your fancy but that is no reason to ridicule her.

That horse isn't that bad. The picture is awfull but the horse is not standing square and it looks like it's standing on a slight slope. Young stock type horses are almost always built down hill untill they get thier full growth.
