    Thank you! I'll probably just trail ride with her. I've never really done shows so I'm not sure about that. We have 12 acres here and alot of it is hills, creeks and woods so I plan on putting in our own trail riding area. She is registered so I thought maybe (someday in her far off future) I would breed her. I don't want to breed bad qualities though so I want to keep an eye on her conformation as she grows up.

    She's SUPER cute!

    The ONLY major thing I see, especially in the second photo, is her neck looks to tie in pretty low. Which in turn makes her look really heavy in the front end. For a trail horse she'll do fine. Heck, for most any work she'll do find. But when you start picking her up for collection, getting her to round her back and really carry herself - she may struggle to do that well, just because it will be phyically hard for her.

    Other than that she also looks weak/long in the pasterns, and maybe cowhocked by looking at the second picture. I love her back, rear and head. Very feminine face (which is always nice on a mare).

    Overall very nice horse you've found! I'm excited for your guys' future together!

    Did I meantion she's SUPER cute? :)

    Unfortunately the things that Elana listed are traits that will not change as she gets older... Well she will fill,out, but she will still have all the other conformation flaws. In my opinion, this mares structure would indicate that she should not be bred. Just as not every purebred dog should be bred, neither should every purebred horse. Own her, train her and love her, but please do not breed her.

    Thank you very much that is exactly what I needed to hear. She will remain a family member and not a broodmare. :)

    Just for giggles what do ya'll think of my other 2. They are both 8yo QH's.

    Both cute and sturdy looking. I like the Brown - nice balanced look to her. Would love to see better photos (start a new thread if you want critiques).
