I have recently (as of this week) listed my 2 year old filly for sale.
I am going to start off by saying, I have raised this horse but 1) I was not prepared for her and 2) I don't know a whole lot about her bloodlines.
Her mother is one of "those" horses. The only thing I know for certain is that her dam was an Egyptian Arabian, papered. I was told her father was a Paint. Not sure how true that is though, everyone who sees her says she's got TB in her.
Her dad is a humongous absolutely stunning Halfinger who I have no pictures of.
My mare was boarded when they had a "mishap" (for lack of a better term) and the stallion above got access to her. I moved her immediately to another barn, but the damage was done and Evie Lynn was born.
This is mom with the filly in question when she was days old:
I have no good current pictures of her, but I have a few poor quality cell phone pics. Going in order of age.
These are the most recent. Sorry about the quality.
She stands, ties, and leads well but that's about the extent of it. To be perfectly honest she has an extreme attitude problem. She acts like an Arabian, she is boss in the herd, and tries to be boss of everyone else. I am about the only person in the household who doesn't allow it, but she pushes my boyfriend around like she owns him. I wanted to keep her and go the WP route with her, but I feel she would do better with somebody who is going to take her an do some kind of competing with her. I don't show any more, and I think she's going to need it. She's best behaved when she's stimulated and worked.
What I am looking for here is a combo of a nice critique on her, and what you think I should advertise her for? What disciplines do you think she'd excel in? Based on comfirmation, and knowing she has the endurance/disposition of the Arabian?
Thank you in advance for anything you may tell me. I would love to keep her, but think it would be better for both of us if she went to somebody who would do something with her. I mean that like... more of something than backyard trail riding, which is basically all I do any more! Minus a few Hunter Paces a year and a couple of long charity rides and things of that nature.
