    3yr QH Mare, Nova

    This is Nova my AQHA "Lenas Little Nova", she is a 2010 cow bred filly. She is around 14 hhs right now and I'm crossing my fingers she makes it 14.2 by next spring but I think she's done going up. I'm going to try to grab better pictures today if I can but from what you can see what do you think? To me she seems short is every aspect lol but she's the best horse I have ever owned, I don't plan on breeding her.

    She looks like she will make a versatile working type. Fairly balanced to my eye, good shoulder, topline needs more muscle (I know not in real work yet) but is a good length. Croup is steep and hind leg a bit too straight. Right now she is downhill. Hocks and knees are nice and low. I wish she had more bone. Head is plain and not very feminine, but she looks honest and has a kind expression. All of these faults are minor and she looks like she will be the type to go strong for many years.

    She's only 3 y/o, so really isn't done growing yet. Most horses grown until they're 5 or 6, so she may very well top out a little taller than 14.2. Even if she doesn't, that's a good height for a nice little cow pony.

    I was really hoping that she would get her Dads head because he has a beautiful QH head with large doll eyes. I would love it if she kept growing past 14.2, anyone that comes over can't believe she's a QH she's pretty stubby lol.

    She is 2, right? If she is 2010 bred, then she is foaled in 2011 and is 2 now? Correct me if that's wrong.

    I think she's a doll. Very nicely proportioned. Only her neck could be a tiny bit longer, set on higher, but honestly, that's nit-picking. She is very nice!

    Pedigree says she is 2010 model so that makes her 3 years old :)

    I wish I had cows or even one, my neighbor has some be he would kill me if he caught me doing anything off a horse with them. One of my neighbors a couple miles away said I could help them move their cows when they take their horses out for it or if I see their cows close to the road in the pasture I can just go in and practice. One of the other neighbors cows got out the one day and was sitting in the ditch, I figured her was fair game and tried keeping just ahead of him on turns and I think she got the idea pretty quick then the little guy got scared and flew back through the fence :S I need to watch videos on cutting I really do, never seen it in person here.
