Possible Buy - Three Year Old Filly, Barbie Doll

So my trainer Toni has been doing a "Barn Blowout" lately and she is doing a show for her students next weekend. She is going to do a large sale that day to double up on the show, but she told me that if there is a horse I wanted I'd better get it now....Well, I have really taken a liking to this little palomino filly that I've been riding since she was started. She was bre dby Toni and started by her. She only has 60 days on her, but she moves like she will be a decent reiner and a nice all purpose horse. I'm not sure she's going to excel in anything special, but since I only want her as a project pony to play around on, that'd be fine.

So here's the pictures. I ran over there after work today and got her out to get this thread started.....I want some opinions before I make any final decisions.

Sorry the pictures aren't so great, I took them on my cell phone and the lighting really sucked. Plus we were right in the barn aisle by the door, so the bright sun was screwing it up to. Oh well, let's see what we can get from these pictures ^^

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

She's nicely balanced. A little bit long-bodied, and has pasterns that are a tinch on the longish side. She does need a new farrier, and I would definitely get a PPE - her toes are long, and her heels are underslung on her front legs. Nice shoulder, thin-ish neck, and a fairly unrefined head. All in all, I like her.

The pictures don't do her feet justice. The farrier that came out for her was an experiment because we can't seem to get our good farrier out here anymore. Hmph. Oh well.

I definitely think I'm going to get her. I hae the cash for it. She has nice breeding, a total sweetheart, and quite eyecatching.

And as for the head, she does have her mouth open for the side shots. If she closed her mouth she'd look a bit better.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback ^^

I LIKE her. I would buy her. As for her head- I like it- I don't like the tiny little babydoll heads on Quarter horses that people are shooting for. She has substance and good bone. I do like her! She has a very kind soft eye.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

My thoughts exactly, draftrider. She has those big brown eyes that just make you melt, and since she's still a baby I expect she'll fill out here soon ^^

LOL yes about five minute after I posted the thread I decided to go for it. I'm just afraid that at the sale someone will snatch her up and not be able to deal with the green-ness that she has.

Thanks guys. I'll probably leave her at Toni's for awhile and pay for another 30 days, because I'm going to be leaving for two weeks here soon and I want her to be ready for low-level stuff by the end of the summer....I figure give her another 60 days and then start doing some light competition to see what she excels in. ^^

She is beautiful! Totally love her! And-she is only 3, so she will fill out, and that may thicken her neck for sure. Have fun!
