Critique Qh filly, thinking of buying

Ok, this little filly yis named Aurora. She will be 2 in May. My mother is thinking about buying her as a barrel prospect. It would be her first time traingin a barrel horse, but my step-father who has trained them most of his life will be helping. I think she is gorgeous, but I would like other people's opinions because I am in love...lol. These are the only pictures I have of her because of course she is not mine yet..lol

I'm happy to hear all opinions

Hard to believe she is only 1 1/2 years old! She looks much more mature.

As for her build and balance, she looks like a nicely put together filly. I like the slope to her shoulder, her back legs look good, nice neck going into her chest, short back, nice eye, and good head. Aside from her tail (typical of a young horse) I would have taken her for much older then 1 1/2 years old. Overall, I think she is nicely balanced, especially for her age.

(As for uploading a video from YouTube, just go the the video, copy the URL and paste it in the new message on the forum. The video will enbed in your post.)

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.

She won't stay that color, eventually she will be the same color as her dam.

I actually really like her, she's got nice legs (pasterns might be a bit long) great hip, nice shoulder and I LOVE her neck. If the price is right I would scoop her up.

I like her better than her sire! :)

I like her better than either of her parents..lol. I think she get the best parts of both of them. I'm really hoping that we do get to scoop her up :) We have to sell one of our trailers, but I think she's worth it. My mom will be coming up the first weekend of november to see her and hopefully we will get her. I'll keep you updated.

Keep the critiques coming. :) I know they said some of her full siblings are barrel racers, halter horses, and family trail mounts. She will at least be used for barrels and trail if we get her, but we may also do some halter with her.

She would be great in all three of those! Barrels, trails, and halter. Atleast she looks like she would be. I love the way her neck is. Its thick, but it fits her perfectly. Shes just put together very nicely.
