Horse Search is On!

I posted with a conformational pic of a filly I was considering buying, but since I don't want to limit myself to just one horse to look at, what do ya all think of this girl.

Sorry if the pics are the greatest conformational wise, as all of these pictures are off of their ads. And I know they are young, but can you do the best you can?

Anything you want to ad about her in general is welcome to!

I don't know how old she was when these photos were taken.

Always useful to know what your intended plans would be for the horse you are purchasing.

She is a bit gangly looking in the photos- possibly due to her age. I see a fairly upright shoulder and a bit longer through the coupling. She appears a bit post-legged behind too. Might mature ok, but may be a bit of a rough ride.

Thanks for the input! I sent an email to the seller asking questions and for more recent pictures, as these pictures are, I believe as a 8-12 month old.

I plan on raising her up, training her and selling her as a broke horse, at 4-6 years of age. Either way, I will be keeping her for at least 3 years. and I do know what I am looking for and what I will be doing with it.

We want to know what you are looking for is what she means so we can tell you if the confo will suit you.

I will show her in halter as a 2 year old at a couple of shows, so she has 'show experience' and then as a trail and ranch type horse.

Poor show prospect short croup, long back, under weight and under muscled and upright shoulder. Not as experienced critiquer as some of the others. But my eye knows lack of balance in a build. This filly is not balanced IMO.

Take a look at this. You can find something in the listings under Saskatchewan. I looked and there are some nice horses for sale from ranches. Some nice cutting bred stuff too.

I don't like this filly at all. If she were sorrel or bay...you would look twice at her.

I am looking at a few horses, some that are not yearlings. There is a 5 year old liver chestnut mare I was looking at, but she was too far away, a 4 year old grulla mare, that I really liked, but I haven't heard back from her owners, and an 8 year old palomino mare, but she may be too small, like pony sized, and I don't want that.

There are also a few yearlings that I was looking at too. There was a bay filly, but I don't want a bay (yes... I am looking for something with a bit of colour), a sorrel filly, but she was too far away... and then there was this filly, a palomino filly (put her pics up on here, and was told she had good confo) and another palomino filly (bad confo and priced too high)

I was also looking at 2 belgian horses, a yearling and a 3 year old, but I decided I don't want a heavy horse right now.

So as you can see, I am taking my time looking at horses, and I am not just looking at the pretty ones... although I do admit I am looking for a little bit of colour, before colour, I am wanting good conformation, a solid build and a good mind.

The colour of horse I do want is a palomino or grulla... but if I find a chestnut or black or bay that has those other things I am looking for in a horse, for a good price, I will consider it before colour.

This is the 8 year old palomino I am looking at, if she is not pony sized, and good conformation, I will consider her. She also has recent coggins test done, and she comes with her health certificate, 1 year vaccination card, cart, tack, and papers. I can ask for better conformation pics, if these aren't good enough, but what can you tell by these pictures? Does she look smaller to you? I wan't something at least 15hh, if fully grown already.

I know she needs a couple more pounds, and her feet done, but she looks to have good legs, at least to me.

I just got a response back from the owner of the 8 year old palomino... and she is said to be 15.2 hh... so how is her conformation, based on these photos... I know there is no good side shot of her, and I just asked for more pictures.
