Your Thoughts On This Paint Mare **Picture Overload**

I'm trading my little Mini/Shetland mare for a Paint mare, and I'd just like some thoughts on her. She's a coming four year old, that hasn't had much training which is fine because she's still a baby. I know the pictures aren't the best but they are all I have to go by. She is mainly going to be a trail horse for when friends come over to ride and occasionally a play day horse. I don't see her being a champion barrel racer, from the pictures I've seen but if she's got heart maybe.

There isn't much to be said about her from these pictures other than she looks fat. Hahahaha
But if she has a nice disposition and sound (get a PPE) then nothing screams "run away!" if you want her as a trail horse.

Her shoulder looks funky to me; what do you think?
And I know but they are all she has, and I mostly I just wanted to know if she looked, I don't right I guess. LOL.
She is definitely going to need to loose so poundage. :p

Hard to tell from the pictures if her shoulder looks "odd"

I think she's quite a beautiful mare and she actually might make a really good barrel horse. She has a nice butt, a sweet face, short back, but yes, she's got a belly to her. Since your going to be working with her, I'm sure you could whip her into shape.

She looks like she has a nicely shaped topline, her neck seems a little thick but I honestly don't see anything that says that she's not an attractive horse.

I'd still get a pre-purchase exams. Just to make sure she is sound. How has she been when you've handled her? Curious and willing or does she seems slightly stubborn?

I haven't gone to look at her yet; I'm doing that Saturday if the weather is good. She's pretty much been a pasture pet for four years. She's had a saddle on her though, but the women doesn't have time to train her.

She looks a bit too top heavy, that is why I think she won't be a good barrel horse. But you never know under all that chub could be a barrel horse. Lol. I like her build; just like a brick sh*t house.

I don't know about anyone else but she is a beauty! Of course that really doesn't matter unless she's just going to be a pastes pet. Be careful and make a good decision! Good luck :)

Just because she's thick and heavy doesn't mean she can't run.

Case in point, This is Avalanche, a 1D barrel/pole mare. Only 14.1 hands.

I know, it all depends on the horse. This is my horse and she does 1D/2D. Everyone thinks she can't run but she can move, all I'm saying is that most horses that are top heavy don't make good barrel horses MOST of the time; there are exceptions.

Thank you WesternBella. (:

Oops, forgot to add the picture. :roll:

This was when I first got her and was doing EQ & barrels; its the only side shot I have of her.
