my horsie :-D

Hey everyone

here are some pics of my horse for you to critique. She's a standardbred and so her conformation isn't perfect for a riding horse... but I love her anyway :P






Maybe not the best pics... but she refused to stand still lol i think she smelled the carrots in my pocket hehe

Awwwww, she is soooo cute! I love her face. She looks like a sweetheart. Somehow I can't see her as grumpy. Lol. I love her colouring. :)

Why could you ride her? I thought that she is adorable! And the short mane...not many horses pull that off.

She's beautiful!

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

thanks guys! I'm glad you like her. I'll have to read her all your comments when go down to feed her - She'll be very pleased :-D Unfortunately, I tend to get a lot negative comments about her once people find out she's standardbred :(

Further info:
8 yrs old
14.1 hands

Jubliee Rose - lol I know! everyone thinks the same about her being sweet and not grumpy! she looks happy in the pics because I had carrots in my pockets She generally is happy except in the situations described in my post

M2G - basically all I want her for is trail riding and PC. I might do some PC jumping with her in the future but nothing too big lol

SDS - She's fine to ride - just a rather bouncy trot and an occasionally disunited canter. Her canter has gotten much better as I've been working with her though.
