    Default Downhill babies at inspections

    I have a 14 week old that I'm getting reading for her inspection in August...however, she's been going through some FREAKY downhill stages...two weeks ago there was a 3 1/2" difference between her front and back end and her movement was HORRIBLE. She's almost leveled out right now and moving better...however, with 4 weeks left to go, I've a feeling she's going to be back funky by then.

    Do the inspectors take "baby" stages into account and how is it even possible for them to look past that?

    Save my fingernails please???

    That is normal! It definitely does affect movement. Inspectors understand this, but they have to judge what they see. Each registry is different, but with AHS foals are not given a score for this very reason. They are only given comments.
