Talking New Project Horse, Need your eyes!

Meet the big girl Daphne, 8 year old shire/TB cross. A very big boned tubby out of shape not finished love of a horse, to keep it short and sweet!

Here are some photos, they are not too recent but would simply like input on her. The good, the bad and the in between. Dont be shy, she is a project that will be put up for sale at the appropriate time (when she is ready to go n to her own person)

I meet with her owner in the next week after I get back from working at a EI dressage show.

Here is the lovely lady herself!!

Thank you!!
I will hopefully be getting to see her when I get back, she is not far down the road and close enough to take up inhand to the horse park to work in the arena. Sh eis so out of shape its very sad haha FAT FAT FAT GIRL!! I secretly hope she just doesnt sell. I have known this mare for years and love her to death! i am not too much of a mare person, sure do click with my little boy!

So excited to work with her! The girl riding her is my friend, she is 5'7....I am 5'2!!! I am going to look like a fly on her back!

I agree, she's absolutely stunning! She got the best of both worlds there, the refinement of the TB but the substance of the Shire.

She's really very well balanced for a draft cross. Many of them I've seen were nice enough horses, but not really very balanced in the grand scheme of things.

The only thing that I think might be wrong with her is that it looks like she might be a bit back at the knee...but that's only judging from one picture taken at a bit of a wonky angle.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well If it works out for me to work with her I will be soon!! I will of course start a thread for her training and get you pictures to track from day 1 to the last day!!

She will be going through a make over, clipping, mane pulling, serious grooming and a bath!

SO SO SO SO excited!

Going from my 15h sport horse to this girl will be such a difference! AH!

Pulling that gorgeous mane?! For shame!!!

LOL, just kidding. How big is this mare. The way she looks to me, she's not overly tall, but has a really big barrel which will make everyone who rides her look small.

Not so much tall but yes, big in the barrel, anything compared to little O-Boy is big haha!

I cant stand long manes, I have to be able to see the neck, its the Jumper/Dressage rider in me haha

My plans with her would be to work on dressage :)
So glad you guys like her, sounds like I may have a small Daphne fan club!!!
