Oh my goodness!!! Thank-you for sharing your horse!
I see some of the same features in yours as in mine...Like the super long face.:) Maybe it's just me but Queenie seems like she has a long face. Queenie Side Shots 050.jpg
Oh yes I've picked up on the "wicked smart" part. She has a great memory.
Can you share some more details of how your filly was (temperament, how much did she run)as a yearling/2yr old? Does she like to run now? Can she run pretty fast?
Say you don't happen to have a side shot of "Harlons Big Mac" do you? I am really curious as to his conformation and have recently asked them for a conformation shot but they never responded, didn't figure them too, but was still curious as to what Queenie will inherit as far as confo. The picture they had on their website was "blah".
Haha, that WAS an awful picture of Tawny, here are the fugly photos of Queenie that they had. queen_20120108_9094.JPG queen_DSC08221.JPG
Seems like to me they don't know how to take pictures of their horses. Some of their horses are well built and some not, but can't argue with their price if you get a decent horse out of it.
One of my favorite stallions of theirs is Laughing Pep San. I probably would have aimed to buy one of his foals had I known then what I know now about conformation. Have you seen on their website a weanling named "Lulu"? Now that is one I love to have in my barn, just don't have the space, and I'd have to wait another two years before I could ride her. She has Laughing Pep on the top and a mare out of Harlons Big Mac on the bottom....And she's black...Too bad! AQHA Black Colts & Fillies for Sale
And yes I've been trying to make Queenie gain more weight; I've got her separated from the other horse and pony, and have been making sure she has free choice hay and about a pound of beet pulp. She also has salt and mineral available to her at will.
Can't wait until next summer, do you suppose she could pull anything now? Like drag a log to get her used to some weight in preparation for, say a calf or cart... If nothing else to get her used to things coming at her from behind, and from the front.
