But has just been put back out to pasture until next year, they said so she could grow more before finishing her out and starting on loping if they have her that long.

- I was wondering if anybody else thought her pasterns might be a little long.

She does look to me to be rather light on bone in front, especially since up top she's a very solid girl. And the pasterns are bit on the long side.
