Possible purchase critique.

So I looked at ahorse last night, lovely little mare but not quite what i'm looking for.

Going for a drive to have a look at this mare on Saturday.

5yo, 14.2hh, Australian Stock Horse. Would be used for Campdrafting, ASH showing, and a little bit of everything else. So basially Similar to cutting, and a little bit of dressage type work.

Opinions? Bad photos, I know!

Hmm, pictures aren't showing up. How's the 2yo ASH? Have you decided against her?

Oh Phooey. I'll put them on photo bucket and go again.

I haven't decided against her - But I think there is a real possibility her breeders will decide they want to keep her - So i'm still looking at others. i'm going up to the breeders in two weeks so will know more then!

They do not have any level ground to take a photo on?

Nice shoulders, long forearm and loose elbow, really nice hindquarter, long femur and low stiffle, good hocks.
Good neck length and tie-in angle.

ONLY thing I don't care for is her front legs don't have as much bone as her back and she's a little tied in behind the knee. Not a big deal.
She has a really nice confident look about her. Lovely face and overall a really nice looking horse. She looks like a big horse in a smaller package.

She is just a little light boned, but otherwise a total winner if you ask me.
