Is she a Tennessee Walker?
My 4 year old mare, Honey, doesn't have any papers. When I bought her I was told that she was "probably a Tennessee Walking Horse, but might have some Standardbred in her". I was just wondering if those of you who know more about these breeds can tell me if she looks like a TWH or anything else. She is gaited. I only trail ride and she is fabulous and bombproof, so it doesn't really matter. I'm just curious.
If you think she is a TWH, how is her conformation? Again, I'm just curious, I won't be offended at all if you tell me it isn't that great. I love her no matter what.
Just by looking at the way her hip is built and her head, I would lean way towards the TWH. As far as I can tell me big no nos in her confo. She is very pretty though. Love her color. :D
I would say she is probably TWH/saddlebred cross...it was pretty popular for a bit until they realized that the gait of the walker didn't always 'make it through' to the cross. Shes pretty though...a lil thin necked but with work, that will change. Its also a pretty common conformation issue with saddlebreds...
she looks like a walking horse to me... a little on the hefty side though!
I can see Saddlebred in her head and neck, but I can also see Walker in her.
She's a cutie!!!
shes looks exactly as you said TWH/saddlebred
For the longest time I was convinced she was pregnant (you really can't tell when she's in heat, she's so laid back), but since I've had her a year, we're in the clear.
Do you know what gait she does? I only ask because with some gaits you have to be careful about overdoing it.
She does a very smooth runny walk, but paces if she gets lazy or tired.
