What do you think? Yes or No?

What do you think of this mare. These are the only shots of her I have right now, and I am waiting on some more(: Please critique her as best you can, and ignore the shooting water! lol

Can't really critique her from those pictures, but it's pretty obvious spraying water is a non-event in her world! That's a plus.

I know the pics arent great..those are the ones from her ad. Ive asked for better ones and they will be coming soon but she will have her winter fuzzies on so I though it might be easier with these. Can you see anything wrong so far?

Just from these pictures, I like her. The only small "criticism" I would have is her neck, it appears narrow and a bit out of proportion from these photos (which aren't very good to go buy). She just "looks" like she would be an easy mover.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

She's tied in at the knees and MIGHT be a bit toed out in the back, I can't really tell. Her back is slightly longer than I like but with conditioning it should be no big deal. She really needs muscle in her hindquarters as well which leads me to believe she isn't ridden much, or isn't ridden correctly. She's cute though and looks fairly calm. What do you want to do with her?

I am looking at her for jumping, hunter jumper, and equitation.

She has a long back and her hind leg may be set out a bit behind her. Need better photos. I suspect she would be a nice equitation jumper (but would need to see more first). she has a typical Thoroughbred front leg.

I would not say this is tied at the knee.. it is simply a typical thoroughbred accessory carpal bone that extends out the back of the knee. Tied in at the knee the tendons would actually narrow toward the knee and these do not do that.

I wish she was shorter through the coupling to the back.. so her hind end was forward about 2-3 inches.

I love this color horse and love it even more when they show dappling.
