What is the effect of sickle hocks? I have a lease horse who is slightly sickle hocked
it can cause some issues like curby hock, limit straightening and backward extension, and more stress to the hocks and stifle in general
Would you rather have a horse with sickle or post legs & why?
sickle hocks, less stress and pain for the horse.
It would be nice if they had free gelding for ugly horses, like you get a card in your mail, a geldogram "do us all a favor subtract 2 things from your horse, love the equine community"
That would be fantastic. I’d also do that.
Next year I will probably have an entry for you. A while ago my 2 year old colt jumped the fence and got into our neighbor's field with their rank mare. Just found out she's pregnant and the owner isn't gonna abort it because of religious reasons, even though she too admits no one needs a fjord/appaloosa cross who will probably be wonky as hell :-/ I was going to wait till he was 3 to geld, but I guess I am doing it now.
that should be interesting. Kinda wanna know what that baby will look like. Omg what if it looks like a fjord but with appy coloring
If I lived in America, and had the money and time, I'd probably go around visiting all the "nice stud, prefect confirmaton" stallions listed on CL and ask to look them over, then loudly point out all their faults and end with "sorry, I need a functional stud for my mare". It'd be a dick move for sure, but it'd be interesting watching their confusion/anger. "But he has perfect conformation! He's grullo for crying out loud! And his great-great-great-grandfather was Secretariat!"
hahahaha I’d personally love to do that
bitsandbellboots reblogged your photoset and added:
he is literally so camped out it hurts
Actually he’s not camped out, he’s being parked out (Where they are taught to have their legs out behind them and their front feet forward giving the stretching appearance.) :3 Common for his breed.
What is that person even doing
