Anyone care to compare these two, conformation-wise?
The chestnut is my now retired headshaker, a 7yo, 16.2 OTTB that was arguably not a great fit for me (I'm 5'2" with short legs and a long torso, plus awesome, t-rex-like arms). The bay is a 3yo OTTB (withers stick at 16 even now, but I can tell his back end has grown) I bought in August.
I really don't know enough about conformation to compare the two, but I'd love to hear some of the differences - positives & drawbacks - of both, if any conformation gurus care to comment.
To be fair, the picture of the chestnut was taken at 6yo, 2 years into training - the picture of the bay was taken at 3yo, the day he came home from the track with me (if that makes any difference).
