I bought 2 yearling fillies at an auction sale in fall. I used the $1500
I got from selling my pony and bought the two fillies with it. They have breeding an conformation that I wouldn't be able to afford when horse prices were up. They came from reputable breeders, CBHI Super Stakes nominated or something like that, as well as pretty good manners, calm in the auction ring, and not jumpy when I check them out.

Is it just me or does she have REALLY low set hocks, as well as being a bit sickle hocked?

I was actually surprised to see the picture- he's a good looking horse... It's kind of too good to be true, so it probably is, lol.
As for the mare- It would be nice if you could snap a confo picture or two if/when you go to see her, so we can give better opinions, if it's not too much trouble. :)
Sorry if you've already answered this, but how competitive are you planning on getting? Since you have a trainer, I wouldn't worry about how uncomfortable she looks under saddle- and as for her conformation, I think she'll be fine with proper care, if you're only trailing/ doing some low-level gymkhana. I stand by my former opinion that she is well worth checking out.

Ya his ad was taken down but my trainers mom ( my secondary trainer) knows the lady who owns her and said we wouldnt be a good match being that she is a very marish mare and is even worse in heat ( she has worked with the mare) so i'll be passing her up and keep up the search. I will be doing smaller nbha barrel races around here and maybe eventually go further.
