Paint: Would she have success in the show ring?

I'm looking at buying this beautiful 6 month old Paint filly as a project horse.
Her right eye is blue with black eye liner, her left is brown with a patch
Her right ear is brown and her left is white.
She is mainly white with dark brown patches.

I would like to show her in breed classes, how do you think she will pull up?

As for color and markings definitely. I saw alot of horses like her that were bringing in blues for the paint halter class...but depends on her confo as she grows up and you wont know for riding till you actually get on her and see what kind of riding style she's best suited for and what kind of discipline she would have in the ring.

You can't tell a thing about her without correct conformation photos. And as far as pure color alone, in appropriate color classes, APHA judges by 50% white and 50% color. She wouldn't do well in color because she's too much white, but that's a single class out of a hundred.

As far as her stud goes, I've never heard of him, and it looks like he's just another homozygous tobiano. His sire is a cowhorse, and there's a little halter bred thrown in.

I don't know about the paint horse industry where you live (AUS?) but in the U.S., she seems to be fairly run of the mill. Send us some better pictures to judge from! :)

Mainly interested in the lead stuff for now. I will be training her is showjumping, natural horsemanship and cutting if she shows the talent and colour doesn't effect them. Hopefully she will pull though with the movement and kill the ridden show ring!
Will probably put her into foal in a few years.

She should be alright for those sort of events, I would assume that she's cowy because her grandsire worked with stock. She's got a cute face. :) You should have her tested for homozygous tobiano when you breed her. That will open your breeding options a lot.

Yep Aus.
Thanks for your help! I don't know much about the paint showing world.
I don't have any other photos of her at the minuet. These were just a few my friend took yesterday when I first met her. I will be mustering out there again next weekend so will try get some better ones! :)

I think she would do good in the ridden classes as long as she has good confo. As for halter she's not the flashiest of colors and markings but with good conformation and ettiquette she could make up for that.

It's funny you say that because I always hear halter people want minimal white because solid color hides conformational flaws better. :) Who knows what people want nowadays, lol
