Hmm, I'm so curious to know what made them think that she was AHR
I know pretty little about all of these things, but would there be any unrelated Haflinger registry that may have registered her? Or do you think they just got confused over the years?
That's odd. I'll be interested to see what they say in that matter.

But yeah, it's good that she has the half Arab papers! None of my previous horses have been registered anywhere anyhow so I was always curious as to their lineage and such.

I'm pretty excited about her, she just has the most perfect personality for me...and for what I do that's really the main thing that matters! The fact that she's adorable doesn't hurt, though, lol
It's been really interesting to read the comments on her conformation. I'm the first to say I'm not so great with critiquing conformation, but usually I have at least some insight...until I'm talking about a horse I'm in love with, then all I can see is "Nope, nothing wrong with her anywhere at all, 100% perfect," lmao

Ideally, the cannon should be half the length of the forearm :)

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.

The weaker hind end is characteristically an Arab thing as well - they're known for having more power in their shoulders. My Arab mare is of the stockier type, and she looks ridiculous with her itty bitty bum and massive shoulder. However, it always made people bet against her in a race and won me money! Never quite sure where she got that speed and power from!

Anyway, I think she's adorable. She's got some of the classic minor flaws like perhaps not perfectly straight legs, but for what you're using her for I think she has a very sturdy little frame that you won't find any conformational based injury in! I very much like the way she is built!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

Is she maybe a teensy bit stiff in her hind end? She stands consistently with one leg much farther forward than the other.
She appears to stand under herself a little bit, but then in other pictures not as much. Not an issue really...
Pretty solid conformation. Nothing awful, nothing crazy amazing. Sturdy horse. Built to last!
..Take my critique with a grain of salt, I'm a bit of a beginner to conformation.

Nope, not yet. It'll probably not be until May or June, and still waiting on the papers coming in to my friend. Should be any day now!
