Possible Weanling Purchase

So I was thinking about breeding Kate, who is a beautiful mare to keep a baby for pleasure riding eventually I love kate and her son that we have (we did not breed her before we got them together she is 13 he is 7) But I ran across this little filly today for $200 Dad is full walker mom is half walker and half racking. I think she is pretty but I am terrible at conformation Thats why I ask you guys lol
Pics are her mom (Sorrel) and Dad (Perlino) is dad and the baby a smokey black.

She's an adorable little mite(: I see no major conformation faults or obvious health issues, so I say go for it! It's a great price, and as long as you take care of her, she should be absolutely perfect for what you want to do!

Agreed with mudpie. I think if she looks anything like her parents, she will be one hell of a looker when she gets older too.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I think that this girl is absolutely fantastic! I think that there's a lot of unwanted foals in the world right now, and a lot of horses who are homeless and in bad situations. I applaud you for buying a horse instead of adding more to the mess!

She is adorable. She should be perfect for what you want and at $200, she is way cheaper than breeding your mare would be (with vet care, extra feed and all that good stuff). Definitely at least go meet her!

Gorgeous filly!

Just make sure she doesn't have an umbilical hernia. In the first photo she has a little lump at her navel. The other body photo doesn't show it though, so it could be nothing. It might just be because she is so young in the photos. But double check to be sure.

She's stunning for sure!

PS. I could just be seeing part of a tree in the background. I can't tell.

I think she is gorgeous, only problem I have ran into is that she is 4 hours away and I do not know how to drive a trailer so my husband has to go with me and he will not be able to for 2 weeks so maybe she will still be available then but I doubt it :(

Pay 1/4 or so upfront for them to hold her for you?

She's lovely :)
