What do you think about my mare?

This is my mare Demi.
She was bought in a 3-for-1 deal, and she is basically a weanling in a 7 year old body.
She kind of leads, she is afraid of picking up her feet, but we are making progress everyday.

What do you think about her, and what do you think she would be good in?


^Yes, her leg is screwed up, but here she is holding it really weird, I am getting the vet out again to diagnose her for sure with what she has.

RIP Maggie Mae I miss you

She's cute! I can't find much, except that she's just a little thin. I don't know what she'd be good in, it depends on her training. What training has she had?

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

She really looks much younger than 7 years. I think that she will be an astonishing horse, if well trained - I really like her hind quarters!

You think she is thin? Hmm, I always look at her back and she has a "pocket" around her spine, but her ribs show a bit.
She is really honestly like a weanling, the only thing she knows is kind of how to lead, not anything else.

I think she will be an amazing horse once her leg gets better and her training startes. I love her hind quarters too!

What breed is she? Do you know? SB?

The trot photos look pretty terrific, nice length of stride and reaching well under her body behind.

Can't tell if it's because she's looking off in the distance at something, but her neck set appears to be quite high.

Post more photos as she gains weight/condition.

She is a QH, She normally hold her head pretty even, but I am used to looking at my arab's neck (He has a high neck set).
I will try to post more pics as she fills out, and when I find out about her leg.

I'm learning, so I could be waaaaaaay off. Is she ewe-necked?

I have no critique, but I adore that third picture. She has such a sweet face!

Seahorseys, you're right, she does have a thin neck with out much muscling on top, however, I wouldn't call it a ewe neck yet. If when the horse gains weight and condition, she doesn't put any muscle on top of her neck, *then* you can call it a ewe neck.

But I suspect she'll fill out pretty nicely.
