IN the other photos she does not read as cow hocked, which was my first impression. Actually, her conformation isn't bad. The withers are tall, but once muscled will look less so, and in all honesty, many Arabs are so mutton withered that getting a saddle fitted such that it'll NOT roll is a challenge.

Her neck has a good lenght, shoulder slope is good. She looks the tiniest bit back at the knee, but her canon bones are on the short side, both fore and aft.

I think she will be the proverbial ugly duckling into a swan.

Yes, I cannot wait to watch her transform.

Definitely Arabian, and most likely purebred.

Since she's only 2 y/o, she has a lot of growing up and filling out to do, but nothing besides her narrow chest jumps out at me. A lot of Arabs are narrow chested, especially as youngsters, so it's certainly not a cause for alarm.

As you already stated, her topline and hind need some work, but that's easily fixed.

She has a lovely, expressive eye, and I believe she's going to grow into herself quite nicely. How tall is she now?

As far as colors, I love royal blue and hunter green on chestnuts. Even yellow looks good.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I measured her height and weight today ...
14.1 on the button, and 900 lbs.

I played with her and lunged her for the first time. She was like, WHAT?! It was too funny ... but she calmed down and did really well. Remember, as of yesterday she was practically untouched.

I will post the video.

I also sacked her out with the weight tape and rope, she was freaking out.
Yesterday she was running away from people, today she was walking across the pasture to greet us.

I really like this horse! She has the look of real potential. Endurance anyone?
