Ugly Is As Ugly Does

Since I am addicted to the Fugly Horse Blog, I decided to see just how, er, lovely Brego is. Here's a marked up photo of him taken today for those playing along at home (Click on it to get a big enough version to see all the lines drawn).

What I see... Nice shoulder, pretty even build, not downhill. Nice neck meeting chest, although topline of neck is weak. Back at the knee. Way off on his back legs, stands under himself. Ok pastern angle (maybe too long on the front), very sloping croup, short canon bones. Cow hocked, short neck, big head. And I hope his back doesn't get one inch longer! :)

All in all, I think I'll keep him!

I think some perchies can have very straight pasterns and that can make them have the high stepping action. Since that is not what we want for sport I think his pasterns look good.
