Hi all, this is my new yearling "Whitey". (actually 15 mths old) I have not had a colored horse before nor have I had a quarter horse. I have always had arabs or thoroughbreds so this is a bit new to me. I am interested to know if anyone can guestimate how much more growing she has left to do and if she is a good type. Her sire is a 16hh overo and dam is a 14.1 hh QH paint. I got her because of her sweet nature and how wiling she is. Also, is it normal to start backing the QH's at 2? With my arabs it was much older than that. Whitey has one blue eye and a half blue eye. She is registered pinto and I would love to show her if she is nice enough. I read on the pinto association page that the ideal pinto is actualy 50/50 in regars to coloring. Will whiteys small amounts of color be a negative factor if I was to show her? On the side not shown in the pictures, she has patches over her ear and eye, also the one on top of her tail.
Thank you all very much for any feedback, be it negative or positive.
