An alert reader sent me this picture. This mare is a six year old completely blind draft cross mare whose hind fetlocks touch the ground when she walks (DSLD, anyone?). She is currently in foal for the third time. She lives as you see her, staked out in a field. Her owner thinks conformation means "how pretty they are."

Please pass me a 2 x 4 and a plane ticket, someone needs a beating and I certainly don't mean the horse!
