    All I can say is WOW! That is another nice mare. I would love to see what she can produce with a purebred arab stallion. Shalom

    I think the second one would suit you better, she's got more bone and depth to her. I think she'll still look stocky even when she loses weight as she takes after her sire but you can turn that flab to muscle and she'll look impressive
    Not so far to fall and a lot easier to get on than Ben!!!

    LOL, that's true jaydee, I like the idea of being a little closer to the ground some days.

    OK, still liking the mares, just one of those gut feel things maybe, but now word is out that I am looking I am being sent links by people, so I maybe posting random horses on here, not so much that I am wanting to go see all of them, but because I am keeping an open mind, until I can actually go ride some...

    This guy for instance, is hell cute I think, but only 3, which would make me worry because of my weight, if he was 5 maybe, but he is only a baby. My question is though more about his training, I've seen this guy ride other horses, but never have seen him ride like this, is this a 'over compensation to help the youngster' sort of thing do you think?

    I find getting on as big a problem as the idea of falling off (which I try to not think about too much) I use a standard mounting block at home and we carry it with us in the trailer but I seriously feel like a I could do with an extra step to get on Jazzie (16.2) Its like I've lost my bounce. I can still actually haul myself up onto Looby from the floor because she stands like a saint and isn't the type that the saddle slides around no matter how tight you have it - unlike Willow
    That video............
    All the youngsters we bred and my long ago boss bred were like that and they were all TB/WB/ID crosses. They just accepted everything you threw at them because they were used to it from day 1
    I would worry about that young horses back, at 3 years old he's asking a lot of it under saddle with his weight and the weight of a western saddle too. But that could be because I'm from the UK where its not considered professional to do so much with a horse under 4yrs

    LOL, Jaydee, my English side rebels at a big person riding, and a 3 year old being that broke!

    The mounting thing, that is an odd one for me, I have to use a block, but it is easier climbing up the side of Ben, when I do get my foot in the stirrup, than just putting my foot in and swinging over like I do for Emmy.

    The mare you posted along side that nice QH looking stallion is a LOT BETTER than that photo shows her to be. She is standing awful, camera is at an awful angle, she has brood mare belly and is out of shape.

    If you look deeper she is pretty nice. Her shoulder sweeps back well and her point os shoulder is pretty well placed. Her neck is a bit fat and there are wrinkles that make it look like s steep shoulder. She has nice low knees and hocks. She may be a bit straight through the hocks.

    Of the two mares posted I like #2 better.
