    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 is tiny but her sire has consistently thrown late bloomers

    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!
