Since she is so cheap, I'd drive over there and see her in person. If you like her, pay 1/2 or the whole thing for her and ask if they will let you board her over there a couple weeks. It would be worth paying a little extra, so she doesn't slip out of your fingers. She is a cute little thang. =P

She is very cute! Very bum high but she could grow out of that. Only thing that jumps out at me is that that hindquarter may end up being a bit posty when she's fully matured - they usually straighten out as they get older - but I don't know if that's a good thing in a gaited horse or what because I don't own or ride gaiteds!

I do like both her parents though, just lovely looking horses.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

I think her straightness may be part of her growth spurt... It would be pretty uncommon for a gaited horse to be very straight behind... Neither parent is, so my guess is that as she evens out again her angles will change.

She is super cute, and at this point in her young life, I like her better than either of her parents... It would be $200 well spent if you are looking for something like her :)

Well here is a pic only 1 I got yesterday trying to get her settled in, we put her in the pen just so she could get use to us before we let her in the big area lol. Her and my baby girl (2 yo daughter) played chase through the fence it was so cute, the filly would run 1 way wait for my daughter to catch up then go the other lol. She leads, did not want to get in the trailer but we managed, she is ok with her front feet being picked up but will kick if you mess with her back feet so we have that to work with. They have her mane braided with tape not sure how hard that is to get out. She is so cute the pic makes her look red and not her true color. She is an odd color basically a cocoa. And my husband has named her Cocoa although I told him her color may change lol. I did not argue because when I described her to my grandmother she said you should name her cocoa. I will try for some better pics today.
