About the only things I see that I don't like are her cow hocked hinds, and splayed fronts. Otherwise, I think she is really, really nice...and I'm hooking up my truck and trailer to come steal her

In all seriousness, she is really nice; decent shoulder, short back, hocks are set nice and low, nice neck, although a tad thick in the throat latch, very soft expression, and nicely refined face.

How tall is she?

Like was said above, she has a few issues, but nothing serious. But she's too pretty! You'd never notice any faults...lol.

She's not very cow hocked or splayed, just a little. The only thing I have to add is that she looks low in her heels. Overall though, I too think she has great conformation, not to mention how stunningly beautiful she is! How did you come by such a lovely horse?

(BTW - I never would have guessed she was a Missouri Fox Trotter! Especially with those eyes - I've rarely seen blue eyes on anything but Paints and Appys)

Thanks! She was actually one of the first horses I went to look at. I found her on her farm's website and she was only a few hours away.

And yeah, a lot of people ask me if she's a paint, haha. I haven't seen any Fox Trotters with blue eyes, but a good amount of Walkers have them. Only the pinto ones, though. I think I've only seen one other horse in person that had blue eyes and wasn't a pinto or a double dilute. He was a halflinger, strangely enough.
