I did not mean what I posted in a negative way at all, hope it didn't offend you because it was not my intentions. It's a beautiful horse.

I like the way he looked in December - more balanced. Since then he appears to have gotten longer without getting taller. Right now she looks long backed. She also appears tied in at the knee. And without a photo of her standing square I can't say what it is, but something looks really odd about her rear pasterns.

All and all she looks like she would be a solid using sort.

A nice type of horse, perhaps a little weak in the hind end, and also her hocks look slightly weak. However she has a lovely sloping shoulder, and a neck that looks like it will be nicely rounded and a lovely shape once she starts being ridden and muscles up. She is nicely uphill, and although her wither is quite prominent I am again guessing once she comes into work and her back muscles up it will be more in proportion. She also looks to have a lovely head on her, will be interesting to see how she matures!

She is tiny for a draft cross, isn't she? My gelding (Percheron/paint cross) was 15hh as a 2yo and is now about 16.2hh as a 4yo.

I agree with what the others have said. She is a bit light on bone and light behind. Really, though, she looks like a good little using horse. My only is her shark-fin withers. Hopefully you won't have to get a custom saddle to accommodate those (my friend's Arab gelding has shark-fin withers like those and she ended up having to go with a custom saddle to fit him).

she still has some growing to do. Her shape will change by the time she is 6. Out of curiosity only, what was her dam ? was the sire the draft cross ? or the dam ? I have been told by Draft breeders, that if the Dam is the larger horse, the foal will be larger. Do not know how true this is, but i have 2 draft type crosses out of draft mares, one large more warmblood looking mare out of a quarter mare. you can see their pics on my user name . mimi is the shire xappy out of a quarter mare. moose and suzi are perch x appy and begian x appy. ( lol not sposed to be appy but the joke was on me .. )

Her dam looks very draft and a lot of appaloosa's do!

This foal got the best genetics from both parents less the size. Quite honestly, I think that is awesome!!! She is pretty nice!
