Here are some photos of her outside today. I'm thinking she is either really "thick" or she is mutton withered? I've seen other mares and geldings out of Poco Dakota Buck (her sire)..and they look amazing. So hopefully I'm wrong and she's just a bit thick. (or does he neck just tie in really high to her shoulders?)

Please ignore the fact she's on uneven ground.









This is probably the best photo for confo that I have so far:



If she is mutton withered..how will that affect her later? Guess I've never seen or had a horse that was. What do you think?

Any chance you can send me your address just to have an idea where you get horses like this? If she's missing after you do though, I had nothing to do with it

I wouldn't worry too much about that yet. Shoot, Rafe was over a year old before he started showing withers. Even if she does end up mutton withered, the only problem is it makes secure saddle fitting a little harder. If you don't do any roping though it won't be that big of a deal. Dobe is mutton withered and the only time it's really a problem is when I drag stuff, I always have to readjust the saddle after a heavy one.

The only thing that I see about her that I really don't like is she is a bit straight through her hocks but there are a ton of horses out there that are like that too.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks. Guess we'll see how she turns out as a 2 yr old. :)

Couple more pics. Taken with cell phone this evening. Still trying to figure out a name for her.

How about buffy...since she kinda has that 'buffalo' color to her right now! She sure is a beauty.

We have a muttonwithered horse and its actually easier to saddle fit him than the others. We don't have to worry about the saddle going to low on him! LOL We have a lil filly with what we thought were going to be mutton withers and now she's starting to get a nice wither to her. Just needed to lose that baby weight and tada! They were there all along!

Here are a few names that we're thinking on: Though, she doesn't seem like the "girly" type names to me.

Sahara
Isis
Echo
Kit
Bronwyn

Wish you had come over for the sale. It was an amazing event. 4 days....(Thur was tack sale). Horses everywhere. People everywhere. Would have been nice to have someone to walk around and oogle the horses with on Friday (went with my daughter but she ran off with other kids)...and on Sat with my DH. Wanted to go Sun but already felt guilty for being there Thur, Fri and Sat, lol.

Pretty sure after all the stuff I bought on Thursday (buckets $5 each, apple picker $12 each, splint boots $7 each, hay bags $5 each, vet wrap $1.50 each, popo wraps $10, tack bag $6..etc.) And of course our purchase on Sat, that I won't be let off the farm anytime soon.
