3 year old Quarter Horse

I bought her a few months ago after my other baby died, from colic. Her registered name is rebels rodeo rosette. They called her rose, But I really didnt like that. Plus I already had a horse named rose, so we renamed her Daisy. She is 3 years old and big. Tell me what you think of her I bought her for 500$...

I can't really critique her TOO much since she's only 3...still kinda young, lol!
She could gain a little more weight & she has a short neck. But she'll definitely fill in as she grows. :) I like her blaze.

The only thing that stands out to me is that she needs to gain weight. Then once she's gained a decent amount of weight she can start gaining some muscle. She looks like an awesome horse for only $500. Good luck with her.

She's going to need a lot of muscle. Start her up gradually on a training program to slowly build up that chub and muscle. I find she is quite under developed for a 3 year old. In the pics posted she looks younger than her age. Putting her on some extra suppliments and feed would really benefit her and help her fill in.

Shes big id say about 15.2 or 15.3 I know she looks like she needs weight in these pictures she might be sucked up because the one without a saddle is after her workout. She's very green and ime just starting to condition her to ride her. I thought she looked pretty mature for her age. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

What would you say is a good supplement I've thought abotu doing that but I don't want to buy something she doesnt need or that really doesnt work.

Hay lol. Just up her folliage, get her up to like 8 cups of beet pulp a day, and that will get her fattened up the safest and healthiest way.

At only 3 yr, she may still have another 2-3 years to fill out/bulk up. Some of the QH/Paint bloodlines physically mature more slowly than others. One of our Paint mares was over 1000 lbs (very stocky) at 3 yrs and another was only in the 850 lbs range (all her brothers and sisters didn't finish bulking up until they were 6 yrs).

Pretty color, she looks majorly down hill to me, neck is a little too short for my liking , some also draws meto her head that I find odd I guess it's me but she dpesn't have that qh long face, I agree with every one else...she needs some weight on her and with the proper training she'll build up some muscels

She looks like she's built for speed. What are you going to do with her? She kind of looks like a reigner to me. Very cute. I don't think she's horribly skinny, I mean, exrta pounds wouldnt hurt, but shes' really cute. Looks like she's still growing.
