    He's a shot from today. Not the best conformation, I don't think, but at least her head is up, which is a plus :) I will be working on her topline this year when weather warms up a bit and I learn how.

    She doesn't normally carry her head high, in fact, it's usually down by my shoulder. The only time she does raise her head high is if she is looking at something... And it's hard to get her to look at something with that much interest (She barely lifted her head when I chucked a stone against the barn to get her to raise her head lol).

    I still like her. Her neck ties in a little low to her withers, but this horse is really nice. Hope to see some videos of her being ridden and trained.. and a real conformation shot if it ever turns to nice weather again. You know. Someday. Like May or July or something. LOL

    Well, it's not likely she will be videotaped and her training isn't going to be for anything but being a good trail horse and to realize boulders and big dogs aren't going to eat her.

    I did have some concern for her butt. I was hoping she was just standing off when I took butt shots and noticed her tail is cocked to one side at the dock. Checked her again today and it seems my concern was unneeded lol - she wasn't standing as square as I thought she was.

    This horse could be more than trails.. looks like an eventing prospect.

    Good trail horse is always nice. She is a really nice one.

    I may try her for eventing someday but unsure. She has very small feet which I hear could be bad for jumping and as far as I have looked about her breeding she is a sprinter and not so good with stamina. Would this make a difference if I ever go that route?

    No. And the small feet do not matter if they are good feet properly trimmed (unless they are abnormally small and contracted).
