I’m not quite seeing what you are. Is the knee swollen? Is it arthritis? All I can see is he needs his feet done a lot better.
Friends of mine who are better than me at recognizing confirmation have said his legs are bad. Particularly that his Pasterns are too straight. But I didn’t know if it’s noticeable/a big deal or not. Your reaction gives me hope, though! 🙂I’m not quite seeing what you are. Is the knee swollen? Is it arthritis? All I can see is he needs his feet done a lot better.
Absolutely! I’ll snag those pics Wednesday if I can 🙂Is there any chance you can get pictures of the horse standing on solid (ideally concrete) surface and take the pictures 100% straight on from the front and each side? It’s hard to see what you are referring to in this photo.
I’ll try to get those! But I do agree 100%. His heart alone makes we want him to join my family, I just have friends trying to talk me out of it. ♥Its not just legs but a entire body that needs to be put together in a manner that is working fit and able, not a nightmare and dangerous or predisposed to injury and getting hurt horse or human.
His feet are long, or appear to be.
His oasterns are unknown from that angle...and the rest of him is a blank slate.
So homework ....
Flat level surface to stand on hopefully with a quiet dark background of solid wall, fence to show the horse to their advantage.
Pictures taken of the horse naked from each side standing square and alert with ears up if possible.
Picture taken straight on to show from head to toe his front end, and another of the hindend and tail if full moved to show those legs to their advantage.
Once you can get some pictures to share, then time for honest comment to commence...
What no picture though can show is heart, the try of the animal that can have a train-wreck of a animal be incredibly gifted and successful in something they love to do...heart...that is a total unknown to us and means so much when considering a horse.
