So I thought this would be a cool thread to start.
Basically if you have a mare (whether you are going to breed it or not) you can post it and give us information about it and other people can post saying whether or not they think it is breeding quality and an explanation as too why.
I think it would be a nice way to make an educational thread.
Here's a little form you can follow if you like, or you can make your own

So I'll throw my mare to the dogs first.
She's a 9 year old Quarter Horse Mare. She's approximately 14.1hh. And she's a reining mare.
She had a bit of a late start in her reining career, she was started in reining as a 2YO, but after her 3YO year she didn't really have much in the way of professional training. She was barely shown (mostly at a few club shows), and trail ridden a lot. So last show season was spent putting miles on her (she literally wouldn't stop 2 inches when she came to the barn). This year will be us going hard for the money in the Non-Pro events :)
I have had her since December 2008
Personality wise: She's good minded, I've had 5YOs riding her on their own (no lungeline/leadline). She's a saint with little kids. When she's in heat, she's a bit funny sometimes, not really dangerous though, just lacks focus. No real vices, you can bath, clip, tie, etc.
Here's a link to her pedigree: Footworks Wonder Quarter Horse
She doesn't have much in the way of earnings, but I believe I put around 30 NRHA youth points on her, and I was Top 5 in Youth 14-18 in Canada. Made the top 100 in all of NRHA out of nearly 700. And this was all with limited showing last year + her basically being green to the show pen and trying to erase old habits she had.
Here's some photos and videos:
I'd like to note, our rundowns have improved since the video :)

So critique away on her for breeding quality, and other people can post their mares too!!
**Note**This thread is for people to post their mares even if they aren't going to breed.
