Her sir is unimpressive. The first thing that scream out NO to me is that her dam looks splay- and coon-footed (long sloping pastern) which is heriditary and leads to ligament and tendon strain and injury to the sesamoid bones as the fetlock drops. Also both conditions make for bad footing and require low-impact-only styles of riding, which rules out versatility and basically leaves you with a short-trail riding, back yard lead pony.

One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!

I think.. If you want her, get her. You have the time/money/patience for her, sounds like.

Based on what criteria?? The OP asked for opinions based on the fact that this little one is a long drive away, and there are lots of really good opinions, with reasoning being given.

I'm not sure that "If you want her, get her" is a good opinion, and what facts do you base this on anyway??

If someone posts pics of a horse they have already bought, then you can say pretty horsey comments all day, but this thread I thought was asking for something a little more substantive.

Having gone off track sorry OP, I'm with you, I don't see anything special in the color, I would be looking in spite of, rather than because of the color.

I'm not seeing anything special that would cause me to drive all day to see her, her parents aren't that special looking, and as you say the mare looks kind of thin, just makes me wonder if the foal has missed any quality of nutrition as it is growing.

Foals though are the very devil to assess, I spend half the time wanting to hide Wombat in a large paper bag, and the other thinking that he might actually grow up to be stunning.

BUT BUT, the other side that you have to consider, I know smart people can tell how a horse will move form it's conformation, but I can't, and even when Wombat is going through a paper bag stage I still love watching him walk, he has that long flowing effortless walk that is going to make him a great performer when he grows up. So can you get a video, as well as more pics of mum and dad?

Because if you read post number 8 you'll see Poco's comment on liking something about her and that she wants to raise and train one.

Wanting to raise and train one does not negate the points made in GH's post.

Theirs to many foals weanlings and yearlings out their that Poco could raise and train to just say "buy this one if you like her!". Their are so many others, probably with better conformation, registered, and the same price as this filly that Poco could find.

The only thing I really don't like about option 2 is her pasterns, they seem very upright.

I did notice that. I'm also unsure since the upper pictures she looks fine but the lower photos make her look like she has a terribly short back, not sure if it is due to standing more under herself or what. I'm still on the hunt though!
