He just caught my eye.

Okay, so I like to browse when the BLM have online adoptions. I came across this gorgeous ( in my opinion, of course ) mare. I love her coloring. I do want people's opinions though of her conformation, from what you can tell by the pictures given. I know they're not the best.

P.S. Please ignore the title, "He just caught my eye." I meant to be she, my mistake. :/

She is very striking. How old is she?

She looks pretty well built. What do you plan on doing with her?

I'm not sure if I'll put a bid, because it's something I'd have to discuss with my mom. My most interest would probably be trail riding and ranch work. Her body looks slightly too long for barrels, don't you think? I'm not at all good with conformation or anything, so I honestly have no idea.

She is pretty long, but thats no reason she couldn't be decent at speed events. She probably wont be a world chapion, but if she enjoys it and so do you why not? :)

She looks like she'd be sturdy enough to do pretty much anything. Too bad you can't meet her and see what her temperment is like!

I wish I could too, that would be awesome. Just by her pictures she looks pretty spirited.

Her back does look a little long in some of the picts.

I saw that mare! If I was in a position to take on another horse then I would place a bid on her. She is absolutely stunning and looks well built compared to some of the others. She looks like she has some Clydesdale blood in her somewhere or something :]
