Just curious-what would look different if she looked like a lip x to you? Truly, I am curious.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I was the one who said in the OP's other thread (which was never replied to) that the mare looked to be upside down. She looked very uncomfortable, stiff, and hollow. Would not surprise me in the least if her videos show the same thing.

And after looking at the videos again I see what you mean. She does look hollow and a bit stiff

If that was directed to me, no I'm not mad in the least. I do see a cute mare that needs a lot of work to learn how to use her back correctly. She doesn't look happy while working, she looks like she's putting up with the motions she's been taught, but she's uncomfortable. Does she have papers?

If the horse could be proven to be a Lipp cross, I think the owners would have mentioned it. It may be a Lipp cross, or it could be a QH. You really can't know without papers. Sometimes people get told once that their grade looks like a special breed, so they run with it.

I see, I'll be sure to ask for papers if I go further in this sale. But I don't think I will be. Thank you for informing me! :)

Whoa.
I haven't read all the other posts, but is this the same horse from your other thread?
There is no way this horse is worth 6k. She doesn't look overly happy with her job and she's pretty but there doesn't seem to be any WOW factor to her that makes me think she's worth that price other than they say she's a Lipizzaner. I would keep searching if I were you.
