Oh I love the 2nd to last picture!

What do you plan to do with her?

She has some more growing to do ... Nice long legs.

I am not 100% committed with what I want to do with her. I do want to wait and see what she shows me she has an aptitude for. I ride english so pleasure, trails, english pleasure, low level hunter or jumper.

She may end up being my daughters first horse in about 5 years...my daughter is 2 and already taking after me in the horse crazy department.

I was going threw her pedigree and it shows several TB's thrown in there on the Appaloosa side! Interesting. QH and Appaloosa is a whole new realm for me.

She's absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see her grow up! I hope you'll post pictures often!

Wow! She is going to be one stunning lady when she grows up! I loved the difference between her baby-like-ness at 6 months and then how much more filled out she is and more grown up looking at 10 months.

she's very pretty, lets just hope her frontend catches up with her bum. She looks very slender, nice long legs, is she cutting bred or pleasure? She looks like she would be nice for jumper/hunter, just wait till you start her.

My horses sister is cutting bred, but she loves to jump and everytime she's free jumped she tucks her legs nicely underneath her, very collected, she's two.

She is from a stock bred QH mare and an appaloosa. I think she must get her long legs from her sire because she looks nothing like the mare she came from.

I went back threw the sires pedigree and further back there are allot of arabs and TB's in his line. It will be interesting to see how she turns out :)
