Critique my tb mares conformation
 
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...e/HPIM3943.gif
How's her conformation?

Is she breedable? I want to breed her to a nicely built hunter-type tb. She's already had one foal (not bred by me, bred by a previous owner) IF i breed her, her foal will be my project.

But yeah, this is my OTTB mare!
She looks fat. ahaha.

The only things i can really see is she looks a little posty-legged and her pasturns are steep. Her neck is long and she needs some muscle on her topline. Other then that she is a lovely mare. If you are to breed her breed to count-er act her flawes. So basically breed to a horse who has a longer back, shorter neck and better legs. You will get a nice foal out of her.

You think she has a long neck? Haha that's awesome (no sarcasm). Everybody thinks she has a short neck. We are currently working on her top line, she doesn't really have the muscle or balance to hold herself in a frame for a long time, but we're working on it.

she's definitely a nice looking TB. I prefer them with more meat on their bones.

I'm not good at conformation, so i'm not going to attempt to.

What do you do with her?

Haha yeah same, but I think I put a little more meat on her bones than she needs :P.

She's still very green, but we will be showing in H/J, hunters, and jumpers. I'm not going to do anything competitive, I just want to have fun with her.

that's ok though, it will give you an excuse to ride more :wink:

I think she's a pretty girl :D ........but she does have a short neck compared to the rest of her body.
