Check out my impulse buy...

Saturday morning I got expecting to clean the bathroom and do chores, but my husband had been up for a while on Craigslist and thought I needed this mare.

I've never had a registered horse before, I guess she's in the Incentive Fund, so I'm trying to learn about that too.

Here's a link to her pedigree
Investments Dreamgal

I'd appreciate feedback on her. I know she's a little overweight right now, she's been a pasture princess for about 18 months.

Not a bad looking mare ;) congrats!
Shoulder is alright
Neck looks... long? And needs muscling
Back is a good length
I like the front legs as well, though her hooves have a little too much slope to them
Gorgeous bum!
Posty in the back legs and her hind pasterns are very upright and short
Short cannons as well

Love the topside of her pedigree....popular and very current in the WP world. I like her, and I think her neck is perfect....great for getting it level undersaddle and hanging it right out there. She'll break at the wither well. She's built and bred for WP and I can see her doing it.

My god.. the day my husband ever turns around and says I need ANY horse I'll be looking for a pig to fly by the window!!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Yeah, can we critique your husband instead? Because he sounds perfect!

Hahahaha! He's far from perfect, but I am thrilled he supports my passion. He wasn't entirely selfless, he kind of wants to ride with me, but that was a little impossible with only one horse. I will admit, I figured his Craigslist "find" had a gas powered motor of some kind...no one was more shocked than me it was a beautiful mare!
