This is my mare Stoney –
Her sire was a pretty big deal here locally and comparing her sire, to her and his other off spring, I think he stamps them pretty well with a lot of his traits.
What I see when I look at her, mainly is a pretty long neck, decent shape to the neck, and when she has to she’ll carry is well – but all the same, it’s a little long. I like her hip and shoulder angle, but she is a little cow hocked. Maybe a little long in the back? She’s got a wider/thicker build that I do like in my horses, but not so wide that she is that ‘bull doggy, too heavy to move her body parts’ kind of horse. I see nice straight front legs, and personally, I love her face. I know a lot of people don’t tend to like the Appy eyes, but, I love her head. She has a very pretty face – when she wants to J
This mare has more than earned her keep in my barn. She has been an AWESOME all arounder. She even makes me look kinda ok riding English – and I’m no English rider (no offense J ). She’s a trail, pleasure, sorter, cutting, started in some reining, hunter, jumper, level one dressage, kid confidence building extraordinaire. She’s just a cool horse! And I love her to death.
I am in the process of breeding her to a real good friends QH stud. This stud is a reined/cow horse kind of guy, and an absolute doll and gentleman. I’m excited for the cross and VERY excited to get my one Stoney baby so I can have a piece of her when she’s gone.
Alright! Let me know what you think! The pictures aren’t that good, but I had no one to hold her, and it was starting to rain haha.
(Please don't mind my mess in behind her in this picture, I'm in the midst of doing the DEEP CLEAN haha)
(She's on the left)
(This is an order picture of her, but kinda shows a side view, I think she's standing downhill though, because, I promise you, she no where new THAT downhill haha)
