I am trying to wrangle up some horse-smart friends to go with me so I can do just that. ^.^

Boring!? Now, there are some horses people post pictures of that I would think are ugly or boring or generic in a bad way (but I never say it!) but this mare is NOT one of them!

In the picture where she is being worked she looks fantastic and the photo with her daughter is stunning. I can imagine her being very flash with work and lovely! Go see her and let us know all about her! Sounds like a great bargain!

I might be a little creeped out about the "ok breed me now" behavior (haha) but that's not a deal breaker by any means, especially if you don't care. There are plenty of supplements if it really became a problem or at the extreme end you could even have her spayed - which I've only recently learned can be non-invasive and much like a geld.

I think she is gorgeous and not boring or plain at all. I'm jealous and would love to be shopping for a horse like that!

Name Frontier...so what is her breeding line. Sire and dam ?

I have a good idea of the breeding but would like to know as she looks like one typical from the line I am thinking of.

As they say " you can't ride pretty". But really she is a very good looking horse, and throws a nice baby too. Does she have a ton of flash, no... but she's certainly no ugly duckling. Personally I think she looks a little more classic, rather than the more refined WB of today. From what you say she is a good possibility... def keep us up to date. Fingers are crossed that she's the right one.

Let me share a story with you of a boring looking horse:

Noble Squire.jpg

The end.

Moral of the story is that even the most boring looking horses can be exceptional. That guy was one of the most boring looking horses I have had and a big old head to boot. Didn't stop him from winning everything in sight.

I like her - good bone and well put together overall. Sure her head is a little clunky but if she goes nicely under saddle that won't be the first thing people notice! I like the look of her baby too.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Well, if it seems too good to be true, well you know....
The lady's husband decided to keep her for breeding. :< NO!!! Darnit!

I agree that uber good looks are not the most important thing :) Conformation is very important, and a conformationally correct horse usually is nice to look at!

I guess it was not meant to be. I have found a little Friesian x QH gelding that is SO handsome! What do you think? He will need finishing out, but I think he would be worth the extra work and effort.

Wow, he's an adorable, plump little guy ;)
He looks small, would that be a problem for you?

IMO he doesn't have a very exeptional trot.
