"With the way her neck and back look she has been ridden inverted for some time"

Poppycock, inverted. The horse has good withers, and nice conformation. Forget more weight. Once the showing of the ribs disappears, they are on the verge of becoming too fat.

Look at her upside down neck. Look at the length of her back and the length of her stomach.
Maybe you might learn something if you open your mind.

When you have time and want to research some more, Walkers West probably has the largest and most accurate compilation of Walking Horse history on the internet.

The music on the front page is also pretty good

Walkers West - Tennessee Walking Horse breeders and brokers, world-wide.

It is impossible to get all this read (much less absorb everything) even in a day.

The web site takes one clear back to the beginnings, including mention of the Canadian Pacers and the now extinct Naragansett Pacer. People should never wonder why many of the Walking Horses tend to be pacy

This web site is for rainy days, sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office, taking a break from the barn, done with everything at the end of the day

Congrats on your new horse. She looks like she found a nice wad of bubble gum to stick her nose into and investigate. :)

She's gorgeous! I like the weight she's at now. She looks like a good, solid mare you could ride for days on. Enjoy her! :)

Pretty Girl!

You don't see too many walkers in New England.
That's pretty much how I got my mare only she was skeletal when I got her.

It was a lot of fun learning that my mare has so many cousins floating around.

Katiebug would wave at her cousin but her nose rarely comes up from the grass.
