AQHA Probable Buy... Please tell me what you think :)

All of her stats (Including bloodlines) are found here: ZIPPO PINE BAR,Gr.Daughter 2006 Sorrel Mare | Buy this Horse at Equine.com

Thank you for looking, I really quite like her...

A quite like her too, depends what you want her for... ?
I don't know much about QHs though
She's a bit butt high, but she is 4, right? She may grow out of it.
Her back legs are straight too, but I don't find that a problem with my jumper
Neck a little short maybe but that may be just my taste.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

I was thinking all-arounder with her (jumping, western pleasure, etc)
Thank you for that critique :) And she is 4 so she should grow a touch more

What I see is a slightly shorter neck then I like and he is a little over on his front legs. His back legs are fine (draw a line from the point of his bum, through his cannon, and you get a straight line) but they turn out. Although he is down hill, at age 4, he can grow out of that. His head is rather common but he seems to have a calm attitude. Overall he looks like a nice stocky roping horse.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I like her. She may grow a bit more in height but from here on out most of her growth will go to muscle mass & her actual bone/height growth will slow down, so a change won't be noticable right away ( maybe in a year or more you'll look back at this pic & say "hey, she looks alot bigger!) lol
She's got very promising hindquarters as well.

I think she would look a world better with the winter fuzzies gone, her mane pulled and just tidied up.

She is lacking a lot of muscling, that will come with work. I would buy her.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

I think it's a great price for her. I too think that with some cleaning up she will look like a different horse. She's not perfect, but for the price I'd say she looks like a steal! Were she here I'd probobly go pick her up myself - even to put miles on and re-sell!

She does look more like a "stock-type" horse than the typical Zippo Pine Bar pleasure horse. I have a Zippo gelding that is wonderful. That line is typically very laid back, calm, and a tad lazy. They make great pleasure and trail horses.

Very cute! Although the back legs cock out a bit, other than that very nice looking horse :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

Well, I diddn't get her. Someone called about her the day before I did and they are taking her. She is a really great horse. Oh well, I will find something else :)
