    Default Check this CANTER Cutie

    So, I was (once again) surfing through the CANTER website and went back to check if this beautiful girl has been sold.

    Apparently she hasn't and they added many more pictures of her.

    I know there's been a thread about her already but could not find it.

    The link is
    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=283

    and in that page you can find the link to the full set of pics.

    seems like she's been listed for a while and hasn't been sold, and in the process she seems like she's lost some weight.

    What do you all think about her??? her conformation?? any flaws that you can see???

    What would you consider her potential to be in the jumper ring?

    thanks for your help.

    I was just updating her pics a few minutes ago. I wouldn't say she is thin for a racehorse just fit as she has been running a bit more frequently now that she was in the winter so it is expected. She is a lovely horse and one of our volunteers is absolutely in love with her. She is a big snuggler and just loves to be spoiled. She has no soundness issues that have been reported. Her trainer just lowered the price a bit but he didn't want to budge much more than that.

    She's beautiful, and she looks to be in good flesh for a horse in work.

    One thing I would be concerned about is the length of her cannon bones in proportion to the front legs as a whole. They should be longer than the forearm and they are pretty short.

    I thought it was supposed to be the other way around, shorter cannons = better?

    You got that backwards. You WANT short cannons.

    The mare is gorgeous. Look at her shoulder angles.

    I never owned a bleeder. Can a bleeder take the pace of fox hunting in the first field?

    cssutton - will you educate me, please? (Truly - no sarcasm or snark intended) What makes her shoulder angle so desirable? I understand that it is nice and long - but my immediate thought is that it is also upright. Will you please explain and reform my eye?

    If you look at the second, third and fourth photo you can see her shoulder has a good slope.

    Also, the angle from point of chest to the elbow is good. It also has good slope; not flat or nearly so.

    There are a lot of good things in her confirmation. Nice neck, proper length for her body.

    Smallish for me or I would try her.

    FWIW, My dad's new(ish) foxhunter was a bleeder in his early racing days. He finished his first season (as the field master's horse leading the first field) without any problems at all. We do a lot of hill work to prep our hunt horses before the season, which I'm sure helped, but he never showed any sign of bleeding or lack of stamina all year!

    Anyone know her breeding? Where she raced?

    Thanks.

    There is a theory that bleeding is related to less-than-ideal conditioning as a racehorse, for what ever reason - the follow-up theory is that a horse that bleeds on the track may never have a similar issue elsewhere.

    I'm mentioning what I've heard (not what I know for fact),
    Hidden Echo Farm, Carlisle, PA -- home of JC palomino sire Canadian Kid (1990 - 2013) & AQHA sire Lark's Favorite, son of Rugged Lark.

    My mare is from the Shenanigans dam line and looking at the full set of pictures of this mare reminds of her. She has the same kind eye and my mare is always sensible, brave, and gives her all no matter what I ask of her.

    I have another one that I just found, look at him, he's beautiful

    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=282
    Nice looking! And is the woman holding him exceptionally short, or is he really tall? (Anyone wondering, he's Call Webb. C-town horses names are in the photo extension name.)

    I like the lady better. Nevertheless, I really need for you to stop posting CANTER pics! I have reached my maximum number of horses.

    Wonder whether anyone has purchased this mare?

    Nope, we just saw her yesterday and she is looking good. I think a volunteer got some trot video so I will see if I can get that posted.
