I have a max sabino paint gelding he is about 98% white the only place that I have sunburning problems is on the shoulders and his face. I keep 30 spf waterproof/sweat proof sunblock on those areas and don't seem to have a problem with the rest. But if your horse doesn't have good shade you might put some on other sun exposed areas.

Saw the mare today, and first thing we noticed was that she's a bit thinner than the earlier picture taken in the fall. Definitely needs to put on some weight. She also was a bit dirtier today Found out she does have Impressive in her breeding with no record of HYPP testing done. Needless to say, they are going to have her tested and we will go from there. Really sweet mare, great disposition/temperament. If HYPP is negative, we will be taking a second look. Seems a bit club-footed possibly? Anything else to consider with her conformation?

I wonder why she's dropped so much weight. I liked her in the first photo but I'm not so sure now. Her legs seem a bit light boned and those feet....ick. Looks like a very bad farrier job to me. She has WAY too much heel IMO (I'm not experienced though so take my input with a grain or two of salt)

Poor girl :(. She looks so sweet though, I love the heart shaped spot on her chest. She does look a little club footed, but could it be they built her heels up for halter classes? Hard to know. Hope the test comes up negative, she looks like prospect. Good luck!

Right front looks a bit clubbed. She has a camped under set to her straight hocks and she is a bit down hill. Hind feet appear excessively small.

The first thing I noticed was, indeed, the small feet. Other than their size and the bit clubbed, my trainer did seem to think they were very healthy. Apparently she has a lot of halter bred in her, so maybe that is part of it? Do small feet pose problems down the road? As a pleasure horse, would this be a deal breaker for you if all else about her was good?

I don't like her feet... if you aren't attached to her I'd suggest walking away. Not only are they small, but they look clubbed to me and will most likely fail her with anything more than a every other day pleasure ride. I can see the halter breeding in her, another big no no for me personally.

Good luck with your choice, happy horse hunting :)

Got a message from the seller today. Her sire, Predominantly Mr., is HYPP N/N and her dam (I do not have her name) is registered APHA with no Impressive breeding. Therefore, she did not do the HYPP test on this horse as she is certain that results would be negative. Both my trainer and I would feel better if test was done, regardless, but not sure it's going to happen unless I were to decide to have her vetted and do it myself. I think I will look at a few other prospects before I decide to pursue this one.

If her sire, Predominantly Mr. is N/N and her dam has no Impressive in her lines at all, then she can't be anything but N/N.

Hi, I don't think her feet necessarily look too small - have to see more angles to be sure - but they are rather clubby/high heeled and likely contracted, which can make them look smaller. How old is she? When was she started & what's she done? Her shoulders look quite square(tho high heels do that too) while her hind end looks a bit light on. 2nd set of pics she looks a little light-on, but not by much & she also looks fitter.
