Hey, I finally got pictures of Tinkerbell put up. More of her story is on this thread along with some older videos (about 9 months ago) 2006 3/4 Arabian Buckskin Mare for Possible Lease
Warning: I write a lot, skip down to pics if you want! The first pics are the better one (I think) for confo critique, then I have some other ones too, cause my momma taught me to share.
They are far from professional and probably not exactly what you want, but I would like as honest an assessment as you'd like to make. What is good, what is bad, what she could have potential to do...She's mine and that's the way it's going to stay no matter what.
Personally I think she could use some more muscles, I think she may have evened out her butt highness a bit but then again the ground isn't perfectly level. She is very dirty in these pics and almost rubbed her butt raw. I gave her a bath right after and it has since been reported that she has almost completely stopped rubbing and her sores are healing. She is pre-trim in these photos. She was trimmed Immediately after she dried from her bath. She gets the natural hoof care sort of trims.
She is 13.2hh and approx 600 lbs. She is quite narrow and is using the black gullet with the Wintec easy change saddle. The saddle still wiggles like crazy, we bought a sticky pad to put between her and the saddle pad and that has helped tremendously. She was happy to carry my butt (Approx 130lbs) for about 45 minutes on my FIRST EVER ride on her! Her trainer is taller and heavier but she has never come up sore in her back or legs. She is getting 3, 1 hour sessions a week. That's all for now. Ask any questions you want, I have nothing to hide! Oh, and she nearly always looks angry in pictures. But she's really quite sweet.
She does appear to be standing strangely in this photo but it's the only one like this I have. Sigh, DH please take multiple photos so I can choose the best instead of being stuck with what I get, thank you.
Now for some that are less of the confo pics but could still be useful...I suppose
My pretty girl!
She nearly always has a back foot cocked! It's kinda annoying trying to get her to square up!
Pretty face, wish she'd put her ears forward!
Ears up, standing square...too bad I'm in the way and she's all wet.
She's doing the angry QH...lol, she was mad about having to stand tied to dry off.
She LOVES scratches...DH really does like her too, I promise.
