Thanks, all. I feel much better, lol. The second pic makes it look worse, I agree, but had to include it 'cuz it gave a good idea of what I see sometimes when I look at her. I didn't give her a proper introduction to the forum when I got her, but I'll put up some pics later. Briefly, I've had her for 3 weeks, she's AQHA registered with decent lines, but is the most over-all 'correct' horse I had found while shopping, with a darling personality and adorable face to boot. Her name is Chica. I will look forward to her leveling out; when I'm riding I feel like I'm literally sliding down her neck, lol. ;)
If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.
