Possible purchase - Opinions?

So I am dead set on selling Bundy - Ads are up. Once I do I should have a fair bit of coin to play around with and this time I want to buy exactly what I want!

I have been trawling every source I know - it is hard being this picky! I know what lines I like and I don't want to settle. Lots are too big as i'm looking for something small (14 something hands).

I have found this filly. I've emailed the stud for some more info, pictures of her dam, and estimate on how tall she will be.

She is out of one of my favourite ASH stallions, and she is a full sister to a successful ASH mare.

I would love to know what you all think - I am no good at judging babies. She is a yearling.

I would be using her for ASH showing, campdrafting, and general all round riding, and one day breeding. ASH showing and campdrafting are similar to QH cow events and have movements like rollbacks and stops.

The side on photo looks terrible but I don't think she is standing very well and is also growing!

She is on this page, first under 2009 foals and titled Chestnut Filly.

Thanks!

Did I miss a photo or a link to a photo?

I'm not good at conformation critiques, but I must say I absolutely am in love with her. Gorgeous color with a little bit of chrome, looks like she has lots of power in that rump of hers too. I think she's going to grow into herself nicely ^^

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

Wow, she is a stunner. Her angles and lines look great. Her shoulder and croup are well matched and well angled. Her legs are to die for. Super short back which is a must have for in cow events, gives her that quick turn around and great athletic ability. Her neck seems to be just a tiny bit on the short side but she is still just a baby and will likely stretch out some as she grows. Pasterns are short but have a good angle, she'll have nice strong legs.

Long story short, I love her.

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/

She's gorgeous. In my untrained eye, I can't see anything bad about her. She has a shortish neck (and seems kinda small) but I'm sure that's just a yearling thing. Everything else about her is smashing. I love her coloring and she's got a nice bit booty on her.

Good luck! Hope you will keep us posted!

Looking at her hind legs, they seem to be too far out from under the body, which interferes with propulsion of the body. Other than that, she looks pretty good. It's hard to tell with younger horses because some defaults they simply grow out of.

The horse in my avvy is not mine, it belongs to my friend. It is a TWH.

Thanks guys!

If I decide to go for her I will have to fly up to see her, get a vet check, and then pay to get her trucked down, so I want to make sure i'm not just falling for a pretty baby, lol!

Hopefully she'll be more than a pretty baby! ;)
