Really? I think her color makes her look dirty. A good horse is never a bad color, but 'fancy' color can't make up for conformational issues.

Don't like her, and for $500 you could do better. Of course, if she's a bombproof saint that you could put your nonhorsey grandma on, I might change my mind.

Im going to ask her for better photos of her.

I am also looking at a 16 year old Morgan gelding. I am also going to ask her for better photos. As he is kinda far. And I have a person who will drive to pick him up. He is 800.00

Um, yeah, definitely ask for different pictures- I have never understood why people consider photos like that as being good pictures to use in an advertisement - right up there with a pic of some dumbass sitting UNDER the horse, or standing on the horse or............. *shakes head*

I really don't need anybody to jump down my throat because I like the color of a horse and some of you don't. I was just stating my opinion and I have NEVER jumped on somebody because of their opinion. I am not an expert at confirmation I was just saying I THINK she is pretty. Sorry I even said it.

I wasn't jumping down your throat I was stating my opinion of the horse's color, exactly the same as you.

She's not built well and if the only thing about her you like is her color, then keep looking.

I agree that she has an extremely long back and is overall just rather clunky.

HOWEVER, it has been proven to me that things like that don't necessarily always make the horse worthless... our registered QH mare (R.I.P) Delriah, had an EXREMELY long back as well. Granted, she had phenominal conformation otherwise, but I always wondered how she stayed sound until about a year before her death with a 'daschund' build. And to think that she lived to be an astounding 50 years old with only minimal artheritis in her back, after being a show horse in her younger years and a lesson horse after that? Amazing. It was the artheritis in her hocks, which were actually very nice- that ended up bringing her down.





I still wouldn't buy this mare for WP, considering that a back like that will make it extremely hard for her to collect herself, but if you really like her and realize that she's probably not going to be the next champion...by all means, buy her. I'd try to get her price down though. Personality over looks, all of the time.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

How did she jump down your throat??
As a side note, a little fact to tuck away in your horse vocabulary - when evaluating a horse it is conformation, as you are judging how the horse *conforms* to the breed standard.
