If nothing else, she certainly is a looker ;D Looking forward to updates ^^

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Not to be redundant but she's gorgeous lol. Even if she was solid she would be and she has just the right amount of white.

Considering Elana is our resident conformation guru, I'd take that and run!

I agree with everyone, stunning horse.

She is very cute! I think you should teach her to drive!

This is a really nice mare. A touch long backed, but she looks the sort that could go any direction you want. In the newest front photo her right front leg's canon bone does not seem to come out of the knee straight, but is offset (drawing blank on the technical term this AM). Might just be the photo though. I don't see a lot to pick apart on her truly. Very nice girl you got there!

One thing that did catch my eye is her feet - front in particular look like the toes are long and run forward.

Personallty, I don't want that high rump causing the saddle to jam into the mare's shoulder blades. Just something you might want to check out. After 5 yrs what you see is what you get. Lots of dressage work will improve her top line.

Ya her feet were getting long also, shejust had them done the next day or so.... My farrier does seem to leave long toes sometimes though... Not sure why he does this? She has no soreness in her shoulders or back, and her saddle does not seem to slip forward at all. Hopefully it stays that way haha, her back has certainly gotten stronger since she has been working. When I started with her she was very UN balanced.
