UPDATE: on the big paint mare

So she sent me some new pics of ali, there small pics again so im just going to give you guys the link to my photobucket and if you now how to resize them you can. Here is the problem, in some of the picks her head looks normal, in others her head look HUGE, youll see what im talking about when you see the pics. I dont know if it is just the camera or what, but o my. And then some pics her body looks good others they dont. So is what im thinking, is for her to bring ali to me, i ride her and see if i like her then decide if i want to do a two week trial. Or do you guys think i should just not even bother?? http://s715.photobucket.com/albums/ww151/barrelgirl2/

A trial never hurts. However, her head does look a little bit big and I think her neck might be a little short, which makes it look worse. However, confo doesn't always mean much. She does look just a touch back at the knee but other than that, she looks cute. You might give her a try. If you don't like her, there is nothing that says that you can't just send her home and say thanks anyway. ;)

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/

ya. well i e-mailed her about her head, and she said that it was the camera, these pictures came off her cell phone, so cell phone cameras are not the best they can always make things look worse. I just asked her if she could bring her down to me so that i could try her and then if i like her see about doign the two week trial.

Hmm I can't tell if its her markings or the angle or what but yeah her head looks kinda big in some of them, but if she does the job why not.

She is cute but she looks a little thin. I can see her ribs.

She is a little thin and I see a bump on her left side? Maybe not because the pictures are small and I cant really see. She is cute.

You should come shopping over here in Idaho. Lots of cutting bred horses for pretty cheap. Check out the Boise craigslist.

I think shes very cute! and with my photography background, sometimes its hard to get horses at a good angle where they look 'normal'. If the picture is at all at an angle something on there body is going to look smaller or larger then the rest. So i think its just the angle of the pictures.

I would def. take her for a trial. Maybe even a few weeks, not just one.?

well, she e-mailed me and told me that it was the camera that made her head look like that, she does not have a big head. She also told me she would be willing to bring her to for a week to let me see if i even want to try her for the two week trial before we switch horses. THen if i like her, we would switch horses and do a two week trial, so i would get her for three weeks, does this sound good or no?
