At her age in the photo she should grow into them a bit more, but they are still going to be pretty long...
    I also noticed her long pasterns, I'm waiting to see her in person to really judge them. I don't want to get a horse that'll end up lame in a few years. I also am wanting to see how she moves. I always liked the filly, I remember being jealous when I seen pictures of her as a weanling :P

    My concern were those long pasterns as well; not sure how they would hold up to the demands of barrel racing.

    She's definitely maturing nicely!

    Here's a video of her. She's hasn't been worked with much since the owner has been busy with the other.

    I really like how strong her topline and coupling appear. I see the pasterns as a concern and she appears fairly straight in her hind leg. Nice enough shoulder. Neck perhaps a touch on the short side, but ties in nicely. Very pretty, feminine head. IMO you can't tell much from that video as the circle is way too small to see her normal movement.

    Except for her pasterns being slightly longer than I'd personally like, there is much more to like about this filly, than not. She is very young in the pic and will only look even better at maturity.

    Do you think her pasterns would cave under all the pressure in barrel racing? That's mostly what I'm concerned about is them not being able to hold up.

    I imagine those who do serious barrel racing, would be more able to answer that.
