Re: [RC] [RC] Hind End confirmation - Truman Prevatt

The Jbird is fairly upright - with average to a little short of average pasterns. Ego has longer pasterns with a about 52 degrees in the front.

The old mare had pasterns a little on the long of average and ran about 52 degrees in front. You could sit in the saddle and carry a full glass of water without spilling a drop when she cantered. Of course she is also a walking horse and walking horses from my experience normally have smoother canters than Arabs.

I can write more on this later but want to get outside to the GORGEOUS day we are having here in Placerville, CA. Was supposed to 'rain' today! I don't see that happening as of yet! Going out to work a couple of horses and use the Bruce Weary Three D's Philosophy! Woohoo!
