My boyfriend bought this horse about 3 months ago very underweight and not trained and has since gotten her almost back up to weight and trained under saddle. We have taken her on several trail rides and she has done very well. I believe she is pregnant as we got her from a backyard breeder who had a stallion in with 8 mares and another gelding. So she is most likely bred to a palomino stud. Anyways, I just wanted to know your thoughts on her confirmation, anything I should watch out for, etc. The lady thought her to be 5 going on 6 but her teeth make her look more around 3.
Very nice looking mare. It looks like her back is just a touch long but not too bad. Her legs look nice and straight. I don't know how current the pix are but she doesn't look bred to me; however, only a vet could make that determination for sure. Very pretty girl and unique coloring.
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/
Thanks!! I've noticed her high back as well and am still hoping she has another inch or two to pop up at the withers before she's done growing. She'll basically only be a trail horse for us unless we get into some team roping or something at the local events. If she is pregnant she is only about 4 months along. We're planning to have her palpated within the next couple weeks though. Here's a picture of her when we got her:
