It's very hard to tell if they'll be downhill or not when they grow up because foals grow butt-first.. sounds wierd, but it's true; their haunches will shoot up past their withers then their withers will catch up eventually. What are you planning on using her for?
Ps. Very nice coloring - I'd say she'll shed out a little lighter than black (you can see some dark brown in some pictures) so not a "true black" but close enough for my liking anyways!! Oh, and her markings are gorgeous
Thanks so much for all your feedback! Both her parents were stocky horses, so yes, I'm asuming she'll be the same. I'm not too sure what 'breeding stock' means, but she's a solid... which I don't mind. It is strange that they grow butt first.. I never noticed on my other foal.. but then again that was 10 years ago! LoL. I'm not sure what I'll do with her... I did drill team for 5 years, and now that I'm done with that my options are open.. depends on how big she gets... I ride western, but have been wanting to try english... we'll see! She'll definitely be doing trails! Thanks again :)
