    Critique 5 yo. TB Mare (prospective buy)

    16.1 hh. There's more pictures her owner sent me, but these were the best confirmation shots. She's pretty much the only mare I've e-mailed someone about.

    She is very thin. She is toed out in the back and toed in in the front. She doesn't have a blue eye, I'm pretty sure anyways. Her feet are long, but nothing that is not fixable.

    She has a very kind eye and looks to be a very honest mare. She looks genuinly happy in the pictures and I think that means alot when you are buying a horse. I would probably buy her if I was in the market. Some food and a farrier and she would look great!

    Just curious, because both you and kickshaw mentioned this: how can you judge or see a "kind eye" from pictures? Because she isn't looking crazy and showing the whites of her eyes?

    Thanks for the input :)

    It's a look that they just have in their eye, very hard to explain. Some horses have a look in their eye that seems to say "I'm going to kill you!" and some have a look that seems to say "I'm so scared I just might buck you off!" She just has this look that says "I'm perfectly happy, reliable mare and I'm not going to hurt you."

    That doesn't make any sense but I don't know a better way to describe it. I'm such a dolt...lol

    I agree with everyone that she is very skinny.
    She is going to need some major bulking up before you put her into any kind of workout/training regimine.

    Also I totally agree with the kind eye, she definitely looks like a sweetheart and is one that is going to try to please you.
    She seems very laid back.

    But once thing I am concerned about... why are they riding her in that bit?

    That bit just seems to be a little harsh for me. Have they said anything about it? That may mean there are some underlying issues...

    Just a thought though :)

    I did ask about the bit, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. I'm also waiting to hear back on some other questions I had about her as well.

    In my opinion I don't think she is thin I think she just needs alot of tlc to get somt muscle on her in certain spots..
