I've already asked. :)
It always surprises me how the majority of people advertising horses never have good confo pics on the ads..

She looks like a nice, sturdily-built mare, but it's hard to tell anything more from the pictures.

I'll have to ask the owners if she's been tested already;if not,it's on the to-do list if I do purchase her.

Haha,actually,what I'm looking for is a well bred,well built,quiet mare for a family horse,so basically just pleasure riding and some light farm work.But I also would like a decent enough mare that I can get a couple babies out of her if I want and keep for my own use or sell as western/english pleasure,or family horses,that type of thing,as there seems to always be a demand for them around here,and prices are actually quite good in the area.

So,I turned down the other mare I was looking at because I didn't like her back. She first caught my eye because she is a half sister to one of my mares and you don't find that particular bloodline very often anymore.

What caught my eye about this one (yes,I like the paints/pintos,but am not looking for that in particular) is that from the ad she sounds like the ultimate family/kids horse;from what I can tell she looks well built;she's had the professional training yet she's still reasonably priced;she's only had one owner so it's easy to track down all her info/history.
So,we'll see how this one turns out. :)
