I wish she were a colt.

She's a very cute filly. But would have some concerns about the swollen hind leg, and the weak hindquarters. She could use some more weight on her.

Gelding would be ideal.

Just for comparison.. here is a black arabian mare that has better breeding (not entirely my cup of tea, but better), for the same price.

Welcome to Arabian Horses.org - Online Classifieds

For slightly more you can get a proven mare with a show record out of Al-Marah breeding.. Welcome to Arabian Horses.org - Online Classifieds (though she is a grey).

This 2yo is only 900.00... Welcome to Arabian Horses.org - Online Classifieds

So for 2500.00, I'd say you can definitely get more horse for your money than that filly.

That Al-Marah mare is awesome. LOVE AM Ghost Ship babies. Al-Marah horses are just incredible, especially for western. $3000 for her is a hell of a deal - especially one shown to Reserve Champion.

Bazy's been around, what 70-80 years now? She's probably doing something right

I thought I got the "colt" comment... glad that's what you meant!
That first black has such a weak hind end, I would pass. The grey and bay mares are of so much better quality! Good finds!

The point on her buttocks seems too high and pronounced. Her front left pastern is long and may have some tendon issues to cause her to stand on it differently.

If she only had a few minor conformation flaws, I wouldn't have any problem justifying her price. But it is a bit too much for what they are asking. A lot of little things and some potentially big conformation faults, and none of it was that dectable as a baby. As cute as her head is and her ability to grow a mane and forelock, I need a bit more than that to make me happy for the next 25 + years... LOL

I think you made the right choice!
This filly's pasterns are weak and are all at a different length and angle. A huge red flag for future soundness.

Good luck on your search! If you haven't found anything by then, I'll let you know what my mare has. Have someone else wanting a chestnut from her, so I have two opposite "hopes" going on ;)
