I'd like some outside eyes...

This is ZipposEvangalinePine (Well Done Zippo x Pets Poco Bars), 2005, 'chestnut' QH mare. (Hence the nice pictures we need to get AQHA to change her color cause she sure didn't stay 'chestnut'). Measured her last week and she's right at 58" and growing some more. Pleasure bred on top and foundation on the bottom. She was put on the back burner while I was away at college, sold my other pony so I would have more time with her. Pony came back and I've decided that it's time this one went cause my pony is way more fun. She really doesn't fit any of my horsey goals and I don't need 3 pony's lol. So here she is...

I think you'll find that she is chestnut - Just a very dark liver chestnut. If she were brown or bay, she would have black legs/points, and in the second photo you cam clearly see her legs aren't black.

Very pretty girl, love the blaze!

I would definitely say that she is a liver chestnut. You can see that even though she appears black, she still has that reddish tint in the sun.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

She's still chestnut...just very dark, is all.

She's a pretty girl. A bit sickle hocked, and I don't care for her long pasterns much (long and sinking already). Her back is longer than I like, but not so extreme that she wouldn't be athletic. Her shoulder is okay, although I would like to see her neck tie in at a better angle...it seems a bit high; her neck is shorter than I like as well, and her throatlatch is really thick, which could hinder how well she breaks at the poll.

That said, I like her calm expression, she is well groomed, and she has nice muscling even though she hasn't been in work.
