I really love Duchess.
Can you buy outside of Oregon? I can keep my eye out for you depending on what you're looking for.
I think you made a good decision passing on this mare.

Yep, I agree with everyone else and I am really glad that you decided to pass on her. Her confo is pretty horrible and with as straight as her shoulder is, I don't think that she would be able to get the extension to really make a competitive barrel horse. Plus, for $3000, I would really expect a horse that had at LEAST been loping the pattern consistently and was ready to start the pattern at speed. I really love Duchess (stubborn pain that she is ;p) and I think you will do well with her in whatever you decide to do. She looks like she has the speed plus the confo for reining and cow work. A perfect all around horse and I ADORE her confo and build. If you really wanted rid of her, I would wish that I was closer and I would take her in a heartbeat.

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/
