    Not sure what a NZ standee is as opposed to just a standee...which we have one of at our barn-also "dorky", but adorable, in a huge sort of way. Her stride is HUGE, she is HUGE, and her ears are HUGE. But she is as sweet as the day is long, trustworthy, altho scare of her own shadow. Good luck with this one!

    Well I met this young lady today - she's smaller than I expected from the photos. Definitely shorter than my other mare Honey. But an ABSOLUTE sweetheart in EVERY way. Just loved our attention, totally a smoocher and had us all practically wanting to stuff her in the back of the car and go home. Long story short, I'm currently organising transport for this lovely mare to be moved to mine!

    Her name is Shadow currently, but we're going to change it - I have an issue with the name due to a past horse named Shadow... and so we're going to call her Seoul - a fancy take on Soul... she really suits it as my best friend said today - "that horse has the most beautiful soul I've ever seen!"

    Very excited, if ya'll can't tell!

    Or, in fact, the capital of South Korea.

    Before you buy just be sure the saddle doesn't want to crawl forward. With her being a bit downhill and her withers are almost non existant this could be an issue. It can be remedied with either mule breeching around the hips and attached to the back of the saddle or a crupper. If riding western you'd need a solid D ring installed behind the cantle.

    Thanks saddlebag. I'm not buying her as she is for free and even if saddling is an issue we are going to have her as my mare is incredibly lonely and that was our reason for a new horse, we just got lucky that this sweetheart isn't retired from work!!
    My mare is mutton withered and built a little downhill - she's also a standardbred - and so saddle issues are definitely something I'm aware of!! Thank you for your concern, I will look into when we saddle her how a saddle sits and moves on her!!
