    Mrs P looking like she has a herring gut in this pic - that waspish waisted greyhound look isn't a good one This was taken last spring, she didn't winter well & I discovered later that she had a significant worm burden. She is long backed which probably accentuates the herring gutted look. Pleased to report that she looks a bit more normal now

    Proud to not give a monkeys what anyone thinks of her and not be in any cliques

    camped out.. where her back legs are, the cannon and fetlock are further behind than they should be, they should be more underneath her if that makes sense?

    havent had any problems with pasterns touch wood she hasnt been lame whilst ive had her and shes nearly 20 so you'd expect signs to be showing if anything was wrong.. can jump and gallop perfectly fine.. nwot wrong with ehr!! she is nice ad sturdy!

    It also said about problems with jumping and galloping but I know black ponio doesn't have those issues

    Kaiser (he looks nothing like this now!)

    Ewe neck... and no muscle at all

    Very upright pasterns behind, very long/sloping front pasterns.

    Posty hind legs.


    Any thing else people can see on him or Rio feel free to point it out

    Camped under at the front? I'm not sure but he does tend to stand like this



    Low set on neck, low tail set and short back(?)

    I shouldn't really be posting unless I'm sure
