    QH Mare- Possible Purchase

    My friend is looking at possibly trying out this mare to buy as an all around sort of horse. She's a four year old QH or QH cross, don't think she's registered but not positive. Would like to know what you guys think of her build, if there are any glaring faults, what she would excel in.

    Picture from her sale ad-

    She has very straight hocks...That's a killer for me. I'm trying to sell a filly with straight hocks...She looks nice besides the hocks.

    Also It looks like her front feet may need a bit of a trim. Her pasterns don't look to long, but the way she is standing is showing a ton of angles. I can't exactly tell which one is her normal pastern angle.

    I actually REALLY like her despite her hocks. She is gorgeous.

    I think she is quite attractive. I agree something looks funky with her front feet and pasterns, but it could be because she is leaning forward in the photo.

    She seems like she would be worth a closer look.

    She is pretty nice. A bit overweight. Straight thru the hocks and a bit light on bone. REALLY look at her feet. She looks to be thin walled with underslung heels. No foot no horse sort of thing.

    I LoVE the top half, but not the bottom half....her hocks look puffy.
