Here are more pictures. I am THE worst photographer ever, sorry. And my camera wasn't working (right).

I'm in Northern California (Pleasanton), so not so close, but thanks! This is definitely a learning experience.

To me her weight looks perfectly fine, if a bit pudgy- but she needs quite a bit of muscle- which is why she has that 'saggy' light look to her. Once you develope a good topline and some hindquarter/shoulder muscle, I think she'll look a ton better. She's quite cute though, with very unique coloring!

Is she ridable? If so, a 10-15 minutes walk every day, graduating to trotting and doing hill work would do her a lot of good.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Thanks, and yes, she's very rideable! We've done some trail riding with some hills - a couple of hours is our longest ride. I try to do that once or twice a week. Most days, it's fairly light arena work. I just got her up to some loping, it took a while because she's very green and is just now slowing down at the lope instead of trying to run full speed. She still bucks a little when we start a lope which is cute because it's not a "real" buck, just a head shake and a little kick up with her heels. She's beginning to collect herself nicely after that little outburst though.
