Hope this link works. I think you all will be able to tell what is wrong.

And Toto, no joke. And I left out the "over at the knee" because I don't agree nor disagree with that statement. So I didn't use it as an example. I was simply stating that for someone so adamant on disagreeing with the thread, you sure where quick to throw the first jab. The rest of us are trying to keep this thread on track. So as Jalter said, if you have such an issue with it, unsubscribe.

I have no idea what to think of this thread. On one side, there's the fact that if you don't like it, you can just unsubscribe, and there is POTENTIAL for this thread as an educational tool. So far, I see what little "education" there is here used more as a cover-up for a very iffy motive. I think it would be best to find a purpose for this thread and make sure to stick to it, as right now all I'm really seeing is "Well, yeah, this CAN be this, and this, and this, so..." Don't talk about what it can be, make it what it should be. I'm interested in seeing where this goes.
As for the issues with these three horses... I am only a conformation amateur, but I can manage to point out major faults like these. Feel free to correct me if I make any mistakes, since this thread is to be about education.
The first is the worst case of post-legged-ness I have ever had the misfortune of seeing. There is quite literally NO angle to that poor thing's back legs- they are straighter than a post. Poor thing...
The second is very downhill, has little to no angle to its pasterns, is post-legged, has a neck that is tied in very low, and looks to be both tied in and over at the knee.
The third shouldn't be on this thread. Yes, he doesn't have ideal conformation, but what faults he has are definitely not extreme. Long pasterns, long back, what looks like long canons, and a bit downhill, but he has a really nice hip, a good looking shoulder, straight front legs, a nice neck... Definitely not one of the "worst examples of conformation." JMHO.

Oh, for goodness sake you guys, lets keep this simple and to the point without all the back and forth, okay?

I see the place where it is possible for this thread to go downhill quickly, but I think if we all remain mature and objective about what is posted here, then it can be very educational.

Now, because I recognize her faults (which she has many of) and am comfortable enough in that knowledge, here she is in all her ewe necked, long pasterned, funky withered, knife necked, sickle hocked, camped out, cow hocked, downhill, big headed, fugly glory LOL.

I'm unsure what all might change with her as she grows and gets put to work (she's only a yearling now), but still, her faults are there for anyone to see...and they aren't hiding LOL.

Yes, she did. And I agree, TB, I think your pony is just fine.

He**, we're all PRO's at making ANY thread, no matter how innocent, head south faster than it takes a horse to crap in a trailer, lol

Is this the little one you picked up from that wild band? She's only little, we all know how much they change! Apparently my horse was uber fugly when he was a yearling! Thankfully he caught up with himself!!!!

Well... she does have charm!
Do you think her neck will fill out/ get better a bit, or is that purely a conformational fault that will always look that way?

I really like this thread. I'm no expert on conformation, so I really like to study the pictures and try to find out what all is wrong with the horse before I scroll down to see what everyone else thinks of it. I quiz myself, and in that way, it is educational.

Before I got on this forum, I would pick a horse just by judging what looked good to me. I couldn't tell you what post-legged, cow-hocked, or ewe-necked meant. I could sure tell that a horse with any of these faults looked goofy though 😊

Is it insulting to you when i ask for an educated elaboration of whats physically wrong with the horses conformation?

I feel like if youre gonna have a 'conformation flaw lookie thread' yall should have to elaborate on the issues that caused the fault- like that swayed backed appy.. theres nothing saying whats wrong with it-- just his picture in a thread titled 'worse examples of conformation' sounds like a book with no words and only pictures.. how is that educational information? its not.

Technically the appaloosa dont belong here- thats not a 'conformation fault' its a medical disease. Most of these cases are. This thread need not exist-- its making people think these are all conformation faults and theyre not. Some horses are sick.. thats the part that makes me just scratch my head at this thread..

And when you type things like 'you can tear them to pieces' sounds sadistic. Youre askin people to make fun of these poor horses. Its a shame and i wont be unsubscribing. Show me something thats factual information and then you can call this thread 'educational ' as of now its a bashing thread-- i should just stop and let it get locked on its own.. wont be long anyway.
