She just needs some work. A little more weight and some riding will do this mare some real good. You aren't looking for a multi-million dollar earning show horse and no horse out there is perfect, so what you want to do with her is fine for her build, once she's conditioned for it. Some nutritional groceries and hours under the saddle and I think this girl will be just fine.

She looks flaxen chestnut/sorrel overo. Overo can be any combination of sabino, frame, and splash)

Definite sabino. She could be frame, you just never know.

I'll post a picture of my mare, she doesn't look frame, but she tested positive for being a carrier.

Ooooh, thank you. I'm going to test her for frame if she comes to live with me.

Is she too ugly to be broodmare material?

I personally would not breed her. She just doesn't have enough good things about her to give that wow factor a broodmare should have. And with so many "ok" foals out there, what would the point be? Your getting her for free, right? That should answer the question right there. Free isn't in high demand when it comes to horses.

Answers my question perfectly. (: thanks. I ultimately want to breed a mare to Spooks Gotta Gun. She's actually in a situation that makes her free, but I completely understand. The horse market is so down.. It's scary.

I too would love to breed to Spooks Gotta Gun, but, that mare doesn't touch his quality. If your going to get a foal out of him, make sure you have the best mare possible to breed to him. In all honesty, they might turn her away because she isn't up to their standards as a broodmare.

That mare is a trail horse. She's not show quality unless she's shown locally for fun. Spooks Gotta Gun is a Reiner through and through. You'll want to find a nice mare that will cross well with him and get the foal that you truly want. I don't know what discipline that you want the foal to succeed in, but if it's reining, that mare isn't the dam of your foal.
