Awesome thank you not sure where/why I heard it being a lameness issue *fheww* moment of panic gone haha

Haha I know eh? She was bought because of her beautiful movement (extended trot to die for) not her baby looks LOL I actually bought her off of a video (with option to return if didn't work out) and I remember being a touch shocked when she got off the trailer I was positive it wasn't the same horse, (video done in summer got in winter) but all I had to do was turn her out and see her move and remembered why I fell in love and I have been beyond happy ever since

Thanks again

She is very pretty. I'm no conformational expert, however this is what I can see.

I love her shoulder angle. Its slope should allow for wonderful extension (I am unable to watch the video at this time)

Her neck is set on nice and high and doesn't seem to "run into" her chest.

Nice deep girth and large barrel as well (what size girth is she???)

Large, kind eyes makes it likely that she is willing to please.

I can't see, but I can kinda tell, she has a large amount of space between her two eyes. Any horse I've ever worked with that had a large space here has been a breeze to work with, kind, and "in your pocket" (but this is just from my experience)

She is over at the knee, but it is nothing to worry about.

She also has a short croup, however I wouldn't worry about that either.

Overall I like her. How tall is she? She looks large but that tends to be a warmblood thing, even if they aren't really tall. Well I hope this helps. I think what I like most about her is her kind eyes and the expression she has in her face in all the photos.

Thank you healing4horses, you are right on about her personality and full willingness to please, she has been the easiest horse I have ever trained and is a real lover, for a extremely powerful riding mare when I get on she turns into a babysitter if I have my toddler anywhere near.

You are also right about the extended trot, that is way I bought her, her sale video showed her free in the arena and her trot was so beautiful I was in love haha

She wears a 52" girth but in the summer it's tight and I need a girth extension haha and she is approx 16.2hh (I have not sticked her the proper way since a couple years ago)

Thanks again I truly love her and thinks she is the best but it's nice to know I don't just have "love googles" on, as I have always found it easier to find the faults in other horses lol
