    Rising 3 Y/O Appaloosa Filly Critique

    Hey guys!

    This is Bailey. She's the registered Appaloosa that, with the help of this forum, I was able to see pictures and find out further information about her lineage. (Paternal side is registered QH.)

    I'm sorry for the quality of pictures -- she's fat, furry and needs a bath. :) Aside from that, what are your thoughts?

    Picture 1 is from October 2011. The rest are fairly recent within the last 6 weeks.

    Green Broke
    A bit bum high, and has a sharp slope to her croup.
    Back legs are a bit over-straight but fronts look good.
    Decent shoulder and neck set.
    Overall, a cute little filly!

    She's super cute.

    This is what I'm seeing...
    -Bum high, which is to be expected.
    -I like her chest, it's nice and solid.
    -I like her butt, it's big. LoL.
    -It looks like she might toe out in the front?
    -I personally, don't like her gaskin. It looks weak.

    I like her face. She looks toed out in front and her croup is kind of odd to me. She's also more plump in places than I would like/expect to see in a 3 year old. That's of course just my personal preference. ;)

    Thanks guys! :)

    What you were saying about her gaskin looking weak makes sense... She's not a strong runner in the least. I witnessed her go from 0-60 in a few seconds and her legs appeared to be racing against the wind -- yet it took twice time to reach her destination. She's got a really mild personality though, has an easy flex in her turns and is probably the most responsive of the bunch! :)

    I have had her jump a few low rails, and she did fantastic. I have considered taking Fatty McFatfat here (LOL) to fair this year to show in western Halter... (after slimming down a few tads... LOL!) There's lots of competitors so even if she doesn't place, it's the experience that counts! She's got minimal spook and maximum curiousity. :)

    Thanks again! I may put my other girl up here... if she will ever take a good picture and not follow me around! You know those shots where you're like: "That would make a nice photo!" and they approach you only to have the camera take a close-up? Every time. :)
