adopting this sweet sorrel

hi! Hope this isn't a double post..

We just put a hold on this pretty sorrel mare! After the references are in and the property check is done she will be coming home!

She will be a trail horse...so stinking excited!

She has some sickled legs but not too bad imo. She had a rough beginning but put on some weight and needs to do some work to build muscle...what do you guys think of Skye?

Not a bad horse. Pretty nice top line. Neck ties in well to the withers and the withers flow well into the back. Her peak of croup could be a little further forward. Her hind legs look nearly correct but she seems to have capped hocks. She is tied in at the knee. She is nearly level which is nice. She has a good rear end but her gaskins are a bit light. Her neck ties in nicely to her chest. Her shoulder is adequate but the point of shoulder is a bit low and her humerus lays a bit flat.

Nice horse. Needs her feet done in these photos.

What are you going to do with her?

thanks guys! I appreciate the feedback!

I plan on just doing trails, but maybe show down the road...? The folks at the barn said that she is smart, and from my time with her yesterday, I agree! So maybe some show training down the road. Endless possibilities

I haven't come across capped hocks before, I'll do some googling but do you see that being an issue for what I plan to do with her?

Capped hocks are cosmetic. They come from laying on hard ground or from repeated bangs or bumps in a stall or trailer.
