Potential Buy?!?

Okay I don't NEED another horse but I sure do WANT one!

Ever since purchasing Calypso from Kelly I have fallen in love with Clydesdales!!!

I found this mare and I would love some opinions on her!

Premier Friesian Stallions for Cross Breeding

She is NOT exposed to any stallions, is NOT priced at that and is no longer in the states but in Canada.

Oh gosh! I have a thing for draft breeds... they just look so darn powerful. The only thing I don't like about her is her pretty short neck... and she MIGHT have sloping pasterns, I can't see with all the pretty feathers!

she's gorgeous...i saw her on equinenow.com they said she can be a little hard to catch and trim....i think my next horse will be a draft.

That is also what they have told me as well. She is a bit shy but once you catch her she is good. And she has only ever been trimmed while in a a squeeze.

She is definitely a looker. The only thing that jumps out at me is that the bones in her legs seem to be really small considering her bulky size. She hasn't been taught to stand for the farrier? :/ Eh, that is not cool. Are you looking at her just as a pretty horse in the pasture or are you wanting to ride/drive her? Is she broke or just a brood mare? I love horses, but I personally wouldn't want one that I couldn't use for anything except to look at (unless they were really old).

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/

Don't buy sight unseen! been there, done that, got bitten real bad not once or twice, 4 times! I now buy all my horses after I have seen them studied my video's and have taken a friend with me, even a non horsey friend! I like a good nature and good confromation!

If you have to get a vet check! Most vets will tell you what the confromation is like and any issues she may have that you cannot see!
