Can't see her knees or hocks as well as I'd like but I lke her. She is well built all around, neck is shortish, but not a lot. She looks really a good choice, at least physically.

Yes, she's long-bodied and downhill, but I quite like her.

Wow she's gorgeous... I drool over buckskins and roams.. LOVE THEM. I think she would do great in barrels. My friends horse is a fatter version of her and he goes out and rocks the barrel classes, speed events, cow horse, roping, and reining events! Quarter horses are so versatile and seem to totally rock it out no matter what you ask them to do. I had my 17.3 hand appendix getting 2nd in barrels out of 15 real barrel racers! First time in the pen too!

Go for it, she's absolutely lovely and you'll get so many compliments at rodeos!

Pretty sure that this mare is a bay justjump =P

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

My concern with long bodied horses is their ability to rock back on their hindquarters.
