This mare is put together very, very well. She needs a trim and in the first photo her pasterns look too sloped, but in others they are clearly fine. She is super refined, beautiful throatlatch, clean neck tie in, strongly muscled topline and hip, good bone and attractive head (for an appy)
I think she is def. Breeding quality and she's certainly fit enough to have one more if you choose to do that. Love her!
Thanks! She tends to pass along her stink eye pretty consistently though.
I think she is a bit posty, at least in real life she looks it to me. Her back however is a perfectly fine, kind of on the short side actually, I can't use a western saddle with a skirt over 24 inches.
