I went to look at a horse today. I actually really liked her. Sweet temperament, good age, I'm happy enough with her breed. She seems pretty quiet. Definitely needs work, but she's cheap and I think its worth the time.
She's a bit small though. Smaller than I was hoping. The owner is completely unhorsey and estimated her around 15 and a half hands, but measuring her she's about 14.3hh. Do I look absolutely ginormous on her? What if I lost weight (which I have started with anyway - Easter did not help)? And she builds muscle? Can I get away with it?
These are some pictures. I look awful, had been driving for hours and was worried she was going to take off bucking or do something weird. She's 6 years old, QH x Arab, friendly and quiet.
Here's one from a distance:
And here's another closer up but on a bit of an upwards angle because the photo taker is a fair bit taller than horse. Which I think makes it look worse.
