    I wouldn't worry about her looking immature.

    Yeah, perhaps a higher protein diet (I would e looking to adjust grain types and amounts if she gets a lot of grass and hay already) but really she looks to me to be more gangly and awkward than serverly under weight. I would however be looking into getting grain upped.

    What type of grain is she getting? I find pellet feed seems to work better for me than sweet feeds. I personally like Purina Ultium or Purina Strategy myself... But those are easy for me to get in my area.

    I think more than anything she's just a slow growing gal that needs a little more time to fill in and grow up.

    Every year while apprenticing with a local trainer we got at least one two year old (sometimes a three year old) that we would break enough to sit on and walk around the she would send them home till next year telling the owners to give the horse another year.

    She's just getting good quality hay (I think she just needs to have her amount upped, with no conflict with the other horses) , no grain, and I will be putting her back on beet pulp.

    The reason behind no grain is that I was told by several people, that know what they are about, that grain shouldn't be fed to horses.... Messes with their hoofs etc. To also stay clear of sweet feeds.

    I hope I can take pictures of her next year at this time, if I remember!

    Oct. pictures

    Here are two more pictures of Queenie... The one makes her back look weird and awkward. Does she have a sway/long back?? I'm sorry the pictures aren't as good as the others... Had a different photo taker and it was getting dark.

    Anyway tell me if she's changed any.

    Ot a sway back but definitely a little on the weak side from being long and not as much topline.

    But she's still growing

    You think it will change?

    I've got a guy who's looking to buy her as a WP horse, do you think she'd be good for that? She does have a nice slow lope to her, what do you all think?

    Also those above pictures are awful of her.

    NO. To keep it simple she will not make a Western Pleasure horse.

    She would make a fine trail horse, she's a bit too fine boned for me to market as a gamer and keep a good conscience.

    To me selling this horse as any of the above would be waist of a really nice talented little horse. She should be marketed as a prospect for Ranch Versatility, Sorting, team Penning, Reining, or Reined Cowhorse. I think those avenues suit her best. She might not be a top dollar horse, but I'd take her any day with those goals in mind.

    I'll take her if you can get her to PA for a good price.

    Haha^^ Thanks, but shipping costs a ton. Could you enlighten me as to why she wouldn't make a good WP?

    The guy has seen photos of her so obviously he would know what she looked like as far as WP prospect, but really it's up to him. I was just curious as to why she would or wouldn't make a good WP horse.
