    Yup agree! I was thinking if she's a good mover why do they put her in this tiny paddock. Didn't see anything coming out of her shoulder or from behind. And I also thought saddlebred right away. Plus, she didn't really look like a two year old, rather like a yearling. If the video is from her as yearling I wonder what she looks like right now.
    I did like her color, tho....

    Sooooo, I went to the website. Checked out all the horses. One mare I'd buy in a heartbeat: Most Captivating"...boy can she move. Went on youtube, found her video. Then there is also a video of the little Solaz colt. Nice mover also, video shows looong trot sequences.
    The filly's video next to nothing. Oh. Two videos of the filly on YouTube, one from '11, one from '12....same video, so she was a yearling.
    I'd say it was a good thing that she is CA carrier and out of price range

    I thought she had a gorgeous, long shapely neck, tiny throatlatch and sweet big eyes. I'm a real stickler for ears, even on mares, they have to be small, tight and tippy and I really couldn't tell from this video at all. I also thought her shoulder wasn't very free but, I was kind of hesitant to say anything since they keep her on such a short lead, that can crab anyone's movement.

    If she was in my price range and close enough to go see, I'd not pass final judgement til I went to see her in person.

    First impression was, WOWZA but got a little less enthusiastic as I watched the video.

    Why are these breeders breeding a positive CA horse. This is just so disappointing and disturbing to me. The video is silly in my opinion. It is geared to the beginner in its 'flash' but has not guts. I feel for this little horse. You can't tell anything about this horses qualities from the video other than a flowing mane and tail - its even in slow motion to exaggerate her bounce. Ok ok... my rant is over... sorry. I hope you find something you are looking for and this is from a person who loves arabs. The white guy in my photo is Legend. He passed away last year but I had him since birth and then he finished his retirement with autistic kids.
