    Ooo, this looks like fun. I am never breeding this filly but I'm sure other owners will in the future due to her colour = /

    Breed: Reg. Quarter Pony
    Colour: Cremello
    Height: 12.2 / 13hh
    Discipline: Just short trails for now. Future pony club pony.

    I wouldn't breed her aztec, she doesn't look really like a 'quarter pony' to me, and she leaves alot left to be desired, IMO.

    EventerDrew - I love you mare. Send her to me ASAP, k thanks!

    Though at 2 + years she's a work in progress, she's very short in her quarter (from her hip to point of croup) and very long in her back; the opposite of typical QH conformation. Beyond the typical butt high you'd expect at her age and of a QH, she also has an odd topline - looks like the beginnings of a roached back. I'm also concerned that her hind pastern angle is very different than her front.

    So - she's adorable, and obviously a wonderful disposition, but, no, not breeding quality.

    PS - Is cremello now considered desirable and bred for in the QH world? The first one I saw, okay, 30 years ago, was considered an oddity.


    The one sortof kindof confo shot of Nancy Drew in you barn is not a very good one for confo - she's hyper alert, head and neck up and looking around and not standing four square and balanced. Post a better/more traditional confo shot and I'll have a go

    LOL all reasons why I would not want to breed her myself :P

    And I don't think cremello is really all that desirable, it's what you can get from a cremello(palomino, buckskin, etc) that 'colour' people want which is unfortunate but I can almost garauntee that someone will breed her for that reason somewhere down the line(not me!)

    PaintsPwn- I'll keep her but thanks

    Maura- that's how she always stands. Getting her head to look like a "normal" horse in a confo is nearly impossible. Lol
