    She's got a steep shoulder neck ties in really low steep him accompanied with humters bump and is camped under... id say what she's bread (?) for.. western pleasure or halter prospect.

    She doesn't look anything like a WP OR halter horse. If she was bred for halter then they really missed the mark with her.

    At first I saw the cute face, and then she also looked a bit like she is in pain.. and then I saw the body...
    She is unfortunately disproportionate.. .
    As said, big nose, short thin neck, awkward looking legs, they look too short for the massive rump, that has no withers, long thin hindlegs with odd angles, and very week hind end... I would feel sorry to see such a horse anywhere, even as a pasture puff.. very unfortunate.. I hope being trained didn't cause her too much pain..

    Weanling that something that happens because of lack of exercise/weird workouts or would she have been born with that much disproportion?

    Sorry, I can't see the full body shots, but when I saw her price, plus that she was not registered, I thought, "Oh, no way".

    I'm not going to go into her conformation faults. As said above her hind end is really off but getting the back man up can improve it to some extent. We had a section a whos hind end was very weak looked off and she wasnt maturing behind we got the back man out and it helped her soo much. I will attach before and after pictures below.

    Honestly, if I had her, she would be a paddock companion or occasionaly trail riding. I think she would be best suited to a kids horse, where she doesnt have to carry too much weight and wont be worked too hard. That would be the best bet at keeping her sound

    You know...I'm going to go out on a limb here...but I don't think this horse is out of who they say it is. While I can't really find any decent photos of the sire or dam, looking at the bloodlines they seem like pretty decent horses and while there are always flukes, I'm just not sure.

    "She is not registered, but she is out of Especially Vested x Double Good Asset. This is a rare opportunity to own a horse with great bloodlines without the price tag. The owner passed away before AQHA papers were completed."

    I could be totally wrong, but that statement made me suspicious of that. I feel bad for the poor mare.

    Though she does supposedly have some full siblings:

    Wish I could see how they looked. Hopefully someone will make her a pasture puff.
