New mare is a step back in conformation from Pickles IMO, but not sure that you want a critique on her?
nope, don't need a critique. Honestly, I click with this mare, and she is quicker and much more challenging than pickles. At this stage in the game, I am young and up for a challenge, and I want to keep improving my riding abilities. A sweet, mellow horse like pickles would be better appreciated in the hands of someone else.
That said, I like her so much that if this new mare hadn't come along and I just 'clicked' with her(doesn't happen often), I would have kept her. I think I have been very privileged to own her, and whoever ends up with her(I will be picky with buyers) will be very happy with her.
