Camelot Mare!

Ohhh I shouldn't be doing this when I'm still trying for the QH boy . . .

The last horse standing at Camelot Auctions in Cranbury, NJ!

From the FB page:
#606-- Chestnut Mare. Age: 15. Height: 15.2-15.3 hands. Price: $400. Super sweet, cuddly love-bug in the pen, rode through at a walk, trot & canter. Was very scared & forward, may need an experienced owner/rider.

Thoughts on her? A lot of the people in the comments were saying she was probably just scared because she was in the auction - very understandable. And ooh does she need some groceries!

Something seems a tad off in her front legs, but I like her. I saw her on FB and thought she was such a cutie:)

I think she'd be a nice-looking mare with some groceries, muscle, and TLC. She has a nice shoulder, a decent rear, and looks to have a proportionate neck length, despite the lack of muscle. Her rear cannons are awfully long, and there's something funny going in with her front legs. Tied in at the knee, perhaps? I'd also like to see more depth to her heart girth, but overall, she looks like she could be a nice riding horse.

She looks like she could be a great pleasure horse. Auctions can be scary, and it's possible she may not have been ridden in awhile. They're saying she had a great personality on the ground, I bet with some confidence building exercises that will translate into the saddle nicely.

I actually think she might be this horse >>> Mare

Someone posted that ad on one of her photos, and I've seen it before. I actually was going to ask if she hadn't been Western.

That isn't her. The white on the camelot mare's nose comes down in a V, the one in the craigslist ad does not.

The one in the ad also has more of a flax mane/tail

I was eying her on the FB page. She's perdy. If I hadn't already got my boy she would be on my list.

Those pasterns are like toothpicks, with front cannons to match and knee's too far forward.

God, I wouldn't go there. I would personally be at a constant high stress level if I had a horse with tiny thin pasterns like that; wondering if at a simple trot in the paddock they'd snap in two.

I looked at her and thought she was pretty nice. A bit over at the knee, but that is just not a fault worth worrying over. Like her big roomy hocks too. Nice shoulder and neck is set on the right place.

Needs groceries.. lots of. When I see some of the horses at Camelot I would want to run a blood test (of course there is not time). Make sure there is nothing else going on besides hard times and people not having enough money.

If horse checked out.. coggins negative.. and no EPM... no Ulcers.. she might be worth a try. Her age is against her a bit.
