She's butt high, but other than that she's REALLLLLLY pretty...
I love her!!
And whatever saddle you are using for her, it fits good also

Thank you.

I am glad you said that about the saddle...I was a little worried about that.

She does Toe Out in the back some.

Most horses toe out in back to be honest with you...I've never seen a horse that doesn't.

As long as there is sweat covering ALL the back, the saddle fits do want the spine to be dry though you don't want pressure there at all

Saddle fit worries everyone, it does for me also.

She has some Painted Robin, Triple Chick, PR Man and some others in her pedigree.

Re: PR Sugar McCue

I wouldn't mind to have seen a bit of a bigger hip on her as her shoulder is a bit larger than her hip and throws out that balance.

Because she's also butt high, it makes her underline look a bit over exaggerated. All horses curve up at the stomach, of course. I like to see them a little more even with less of an angle and smoother lines as well.

Here's a pic to compare, so you can see what I'm talking about:

And I'm not an overly big fan of her face... I do like my mares to LOOK like mares... a little more feminine would be nice.

However, there isn't really anything majorily conformationally wrong with her, and I don't see her having any problems performing in any sport due to conformation faults.

She's got a really nice angle to her back legs so she should be able to hunker right down and move when she has too. Plus she looks like she's a wonderful temperment. :)

She's a gorgeous mare.
Bit butt-high, yes. She could gain a bit more muscle. I love her coloring, though.

Based on the pictures above....guess you could not really get a look at her face ....sorry.

She may do well at local halter shows but she wouldn't do well in APHA shows as she isn't halter built IMO. She looks like she'd be a nice riding horse though and I love the mapping on her markings.
