My Molly - curious about gaits

Here is "Molly" she is 3/4 Morgan, 1/4 Percheron

We have always wondered about her gaits. We did a video back when she was a yearling as she seemed to move very "flat" with a slightly different type of trot. Maybe its our imagination!

Would be interested in seeing what others think

Here is the video link

also added a couple of picture. one is when we brought her home from the auction (3 months old!)

The other is from this fall, she is 2-1/2 in the picture, its not a great photo but it give you a idea of what she looks like now

She is very pretty! I love the morgan breed. Right now her trot does not seem different to me at all. From that video I don't think she is going to be a super fancy mover (as in a lot of knee action), but I could be wrong. At that age my gelding moved super fancy, but then as a 3 yr old and now 4yr old he is no where near what he moved like back then. What are you wanting to do with her?

She does have a fairly flat trot, but it's definitely a trot. She's cute.

She's pretty! I just see a boring ol' trot up there, but it looks good when such a pretty horse does it!

There's no way I could you what type of a gait that is.

But I'd like to say that you are very lucky to have found a horse like that at an auction. =) She's gorgeous, and I love her mane and tail coloring.

I don't see anything wrong with her, she as a nice flat trot. She is very pretty! Good luck with her!

What a gorgeous girl, she looks pretty smooth in that trot, I like flat ride, easier to sit through. Good luck with her

I fell in love with her the minute I saw her in the back with her mom. I almost missed getting her as they were run through the ring before I got back to the auction area. I bought her off the horse dealer (that had just purchased them in the ring) as he was loading them on the trailer to leave!
