A very cute girl and a nice project for you. That said, she does look like two different horses. Place your hand over each half in the pics and you'll see why. She is a lot more horse up-front, than in the rear. She seems to toe out slightly, on all four feet. Moreso in the rear. She does seem to be pretty up-headed, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. She may be slightly down hill, but not enough to really consider. Looks to have clean legs. Certainly sports that usual scrawny tail of Appaloosas. She looks to be in fairly good condition and maybe a bit younger than 8?

Good luck with her and keep us posted. She's really pretty.

Oh sorry I should have explained, but I was in class and completely forgot. Your comment reminded me of my cousin's mules whose names are Georgina and Jerald.

She doesn't look too un-proportional in person, or I don't think she does. When I get her in shape and in the summer I'll post more pictures. :) Yeah, I'm going to MTG the cr*p out of it over the summer and try and find different supplements to help her hair grow. The previous owners bred her mother to get her and have owned her all her life. She acts younger too, but then again she hasn't had much done with her. :)

I doubt you will be able to do much with her tail, unless it has been chewed by other horses. Hair really is genetic in most breeds. Unless chewed, I'll bet her sire and/or dam, have similar tails. It's very common in Appy bred horses. You cannot grow hair, unless genetically disposed to having it.

What are your plans for her?

I think she looks cute, but I have no idea about her conformation. Though I am an avid Appy lover :)

Actually there are all kinds of supplements out there that help grow hair faster that actually work. I have an Appy gelding that had a tail worse then hers and in a couple of years it's gotten to look like this: http://www.horseforum.com/members/28...er-2010-23384/

She's going to be trained in dressage and maybe some jumping according to how well she is at it, and mostly a trail/pleasure horse.
