    I'm more of a conformation geek then a pedigree geek. She looks well put together, but definetly immature. Currently weak hind quarter, weak topline, and a big unrefined head. I REALLY dislike the dip in front of her withers, combined with a semi upright shoulder angle makes me think she might not be the best mover. Her legs look decent, but not spectacular. I'm just not seeing why she should be bred, without seeing if she can move, jump, or has any brains first.

    Drop into the hunter forum for a fuller discussion of her:

    I dunno, I think her shoulder is pretty decent. What are you looking at that I'm missing? I'm trying to see where her scapula starts and ends and it seems pretty well angled to me (at least, I've seen horses with far more upright shoulders who are nice movers). And her humerus looks fairly long, while not at a super-open angle I would think that would be helpful.
