    The growth lines indicate more rapid heel growth than toe. It could be an overlong toe putting too much pressure on breakover causing deformity, but I would make sure it's not laminitic. If she's only for broodmare use, it may not be a problem. Just something to check into.

    Yep.

    That's actually pretty funky.

    Is she wearing a cribbing collar?

    Just looks like a collar for identification. Broodies often wear them so they are sure which horse is which.

    Thank you, I didn't know the growth lines could indicate laminitis. That is definitely something I'll check on.

    Just what doublelranch said, it's an identification band. Very common for broodies to wear in the Tb racing industry though I'm sure they are used in others as well.

    She raced soundly for 3yrs so I would assume it's something new if there is something going on.

    What’s her pedigree? Are you planning on raising and campaigning her foals yourself or will they be geared towards young stock sales?

    We would campaign them, she doesn't have a flashy enough pedigree for the sales (not that I would send them anyways, not my cup of tea). Her pedigree isn't flashy but full of sound useful horses. Her dam had 7 foals, 6 winners, 3 of which were winners of over 100k each. Second dam is black type winner and producer. Sire is Graded stakes winner and producer, his broodmare stats are a bit lower then I'd prefer but thats because he was sent to Korea to stud and his stats only include his US daughters.

    I think she’s worth the drive to go check out. With her race record-especially retiring sound-and pedigree full of similar lasting and producing horses, I think she’d be worth seeing for yourself. I agree the RF is a bit concerning and I’d ask about lamanitis or get an x-ray, but outside of that (especially if she’s comfortable on it), her build seems pretty decent.

    Yes, definitely X-ray though. Good luck-!!
