Long pasterns on filly

I am looking into purchasing a filly. I have noticed she has long pasterns and I havenít dealt with this much, I was hoping someone could shed some light on this and if this is a good purchase or if I should stay clear. Donít want problems in the future. This filly will be two in a few months.

I can't view your photo. I have a good horse with long pasterns. We're working on optimizing his hoof conformation.

I don't think they look overly long.

I also don't not think they are particularly long, I would be more concerned about her very rounded fetlocks.

Pasterns don't look long to me either. They will get thicker with age so your perspective would change. I wouldn't mind seeing the whole horse, something seems weird in the back and shoulder area to me.

They do appear long to me @scottie12 . Longer than I like, anyway.

I, to would like to see the whole horse, and if you're not comfortable doing your own assessment, have an impartial very do a pre-purchase exam.

If you do, please come back and let us "arm chair experts" know what s/he says.

I studied that picture for the longest time thinking her pasterns would be the least of my concerns then realized the photo was slicing off part of the neck and topline. LOL

I was thinking the same thing

It is a weird photo to assess! Easier to just attach the whole picture...

Can you explain what you mean by 'rounded' fetlocks? and what your concern is?
