I'm just concerned because she's going to be companion for the next 20-30 years, I don't intend to ever sell her, even if she reaches the max she can do in a competition, i'll switch to some other comp then, when I run out of western things to try, onto English we'll go. So, it's kind of wierd for me, as this will be the first horse I'll purchase. I'm so nervous, and it's driving me nuts! I absolutely adore her, but I have a sense of worry in my gut, am I being stupid?

Not at all. Do you have a trainer or very horse experienced friend that can go look at her with you?

What is worrying you?

I just worry she might not be right or I'll mess up. She's perfect for me! She sounds like the perfect horse I've been after!
I plan on having the trainer at the barn I chose help me until she's about 3, then I'll get some help from the professional trainer a couple of miles away

So, I have more pictures. During the winter her coat has grown to a bay, like her father's. She looks almost exactly like him! Here's the newest pictures:

She's on the left, without the wall eyes and face markings!

Note, she is a little rough in the pictures because she just came in from winter pasture, and is getting for more grooming!

Here's a few pictures of her Sire for comparison:

Can you do a better critique now??

Oh, and I think if I get her I want to rename her and change her registered name. What do you think of the name, "Shesa Rebel Fox". I picked that name because I love the name Rebel. And her dam's name is Shesa Moore Charm, and her sire's name is Ten Sleep Foxy Bar so it's a combination of both of their names, plus her own name! What do you think??

Looks a little butt high and her feet are way too long but she is cute :)
She has a little foundation breeding further back but the most current lines are standing out to me....her dad is a beast though --> bay is one of those colors that make a horse look good

"Charm Shesa Got" would be cute :)

I really liked the pics of her as a weanling, but she looks like she hasn't been taken care of in the winter photos. She has a very dull, big, blocky head, with tiny ears that just look off to me, looks like she turns out in the front and back feet (which really need to be taken care of, they are long, so she has a low heel), long pasterns, to me she looks high hocked with long cannons in the back(which I don't like, but may not be a defect to conformation to some people), and she doesn't have adequate muscle in her gaskin area.

These are just things I spot. I would pass on this girl and look for another one, seeing how she has been taken care of (or not) in the winter months and how she looks now.

She has a farrier comin this weekend to go over her hoofs. The breeder suffered an injury so they are in a little worse care, but, her foals always grow to be stunning - I've been stalking her website for years
