Red face Critique this QH mare please?

She's a 5 year old QH. Hasn't been started. My plan would include english and western pleasure, and jumping. What do you think?
I think she's from Doc Bar type lines..But I'm no QH expert, at all. What do you think of her, in general? Please please?

Oh, and how tall do you think she REALLY is? The owner says 65" at the withers..which would put her in right at what..16.1? Maybe 16.2? Does that seem accurate?

No critique from me, I just wanted to say that my gelding is from Doc Bar lines, and he is built almost EXACTLY like your horse. Haha. Random, I know.

She's very pretty, and looks like a sweet horse!

I haven't got her yet, and I'm trying to decide if it's a disastrous idea. She would be a flat out trade for my mare (my mare has an old tendon injury the previous owner lied to me about, but is very flashy colored, and happy to be just someone's trail horse).

If she's 16.1 I'm 7'3"......and my head wouldn't reach the top of that pipe rail. I like her though, regardless of size, she's a decent sized, well put together horse. Looks like her owner might have measured her with the Arabian measuring stick.....LOL!

Ahh I see. Well, like I said, I can't help with conformation. If it's any help or indication at all though, my gelding is one of the calmest horses I've ever owned (and he's still pretty young at 7), loves to learn, insanely friendly with people, and is a super great, fast barrel racer.

I think she is pretty, she has upright pasterns and a long back.
I would buy her though, sounds like a good trade. Just be sure to get a vet check!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
