So I asked the breeder to send a recent pic of my new filly - and I'm not impressed. I know the dam, I know the stud, and they are honestly nothing like this. She looks so....crooked and kinda weak. I'm so disapointed - I've already paid for her. I bought her at only a few months old becuse I knew her parents and they are both good looking individuals with good performance records. I know this can happen, a foal turning out like a bit of a dud even though the parents are great, but it sucks!
So I feel terrible, but do you think there is anything I can do? There are three other fillies still for sale with similar bloodlines - as a breeder, would you consider an exchange? I don't want to offend him, and I'm a little sick over it, but I'm not happy with how she looks. I'm going to see her in the flesh on Monday. Any advice?? She's the buckskin on the left. Those are some crookes hocks! The roan on the left is not for sale - she was my 1st choice and is 2 months older.
Here is the pic he sent me.
