This is dixie. 15.2-3hh 10 year old mare. "frosted fairy flakes" is her registered name. Take into consideration that a few of her pictures are on very hilly land. She is actually quite level. [withers about even with the top of her butt]. These pictures are not the greatest. I pick her up on september 1st so I will update with better pictures once I get her. Just interested to see what yall think of her. For what I paid, and her temperament..she is very calm and well mannered. Best ground manners I have ever seen on a horse. I think I got a great deal. I only paid $550.00 for her... she is just going to be my trail mare. So no fancy showing or anything.
She stands close behind and is camped under.. a bit sickle hocked... her hind toes seem to point straight forward which is incorrect. You want the hind toes to point out a bit which allows the hind leg to work like a spring to drive the horse forward. The hind leg is actually designed like a spiral so the hind toes should point out a bit. Toes forward usually indicate bowed hind legs. She is built downhill. She has a nice long hip and is very Quarterhorse is type.
She has a nice shoulder, but her humerus lays a bit flat which restricts her movement. You can see this in the trotting picture.
She has a lovely neck and head and very very pretty markings! Enjoy her!
Thank you very much for the critique. I do not think she is down hill though.. those may be the pictures because she is quite level in person. I will just have to get better pictures when I pick her up. I appreciate the time and honesty everyone.
