Critique my 4yo Buckskin QH

This is Buttermilk, she's a 4yo 15.2 Buttermilk Buckskin QH, shes my baby(: . I got her when she was just over 2 and had barely been started(and badly at that). I actually really didnt like her in the beginning, I was head over heels for her brother but oh my have things changed and now shes the love of my life! Shes extremely cowy and was born for barrels, she LOVES them. I literally showed her the pattern once and she got it. I know a few of her flaws, one of which being that she slightly toes in on her right front. Do you think she has potential as a barrel horse?

Let me know what you think of her(:

*excuse how ridiculous I look, I was having one of those yucky days and just jumped on to cruise around. She did not want to stand still!

I think she is GORGEOUS! -drool- Her conformation looks great as well! she looks like she has the perfect conformation to make a cow horse/ working ranch horse.

I would do barrels on the side, she looks to me (from the pics) that she is very quiet and laid back.

Do you have any real conformation shots? We need a good side shot.

From the photos posted she looks to have a very upright shoulder. But it is really hard to tell.

She's gorgeous, my kind of horse. Definitely built like a ranch horse.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Holy butt, Batman!! LOL. She is a gorgeous girl. Like AB said, it looks like her shoulder is a bit upright but it is hard to tell with no squared up side shots. She has very nice muscle and I love how broad her chest is. I see absolutely no reason why you couldn't do anything you wanted with her, cow work, barrels, reining, roping, and everything else.

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:
