    Something about her seems really off to me. I just can't point out what it is...?

    I think it just may be the angle of some of the pictures. I would probably go look at her if you really do like her.

    I don't like her conformation at all; she looks like a couple of different horses lumped together. I mean, if she can run, and move out nice, I guess go for it; and if you like her when you look at her, go for it, but when I look at a horse like her, the thing that pops into my mind is how long will she hold up to high demanding sports? I'd hang onto Duchess in that respect, because she is going to hold up a lot longer, because she is built alot better... Just my opinion on it ;)

    Ya, I think im going to probably hold off.

    Thats probably a wise decision.

    You're not a bother at all RJ!
    I'll speak my mind freely as to not mislead you -- I give this mare a big pass.
    If she is under saddle, her training should speak for itself; even with her conformation (which in my opinions leaves much to be desired) if she's running fast, that should be your indicator - I didn't see anywhere if you had posted her running times, can you ask the owner an average running time?
    As it stands, if she's not doing well on barrels now, well... her conformation doesn't scream "powerhouse!" to me, so I would keep looking.
    Sorry hun, I know it's not what you wanted to hear... but I want your next horse to be PERFECT for you, and I think you'd end up disappointed with this mare.

    Thanks allie! This mare has never ran, she has only ever trotted the pattern I think and I don't believe they timed her. Ya I think im just going to pass on her and keep on looking.

    To be honest, you should keep Duchess. This mare is poorly put together and compared to Duchess...Duchess ROCKS! You just need a little more time and patience with her and she'll turn into that wonderful barrel racing gal. Trading Duchess for this mare (although she has a sweet face) would NOT be a fair trade. They'd be getting a better horse (Duchess) and you'd be getting something that looks like it'll fall apart.
