Reining Prospect, opinions please!

Here she is as a weanling

Here she is now as a 2 year old

She has cutting and reining bred lines, you never really know if you got a champion or not until you know if they got a mind eer not but she's real nicely built.

Horse market is so low right now I think it'd be smart for me to buy her and train her up then breed her later on when the horse market isn't so low.

She is a nice looking girl. The pics weren't confo shots, but from just looking at the pics, she looks nice. I'm not an expert, but my opinion is that if her hip and butt muscle ties in low on her back legs, and she has short cannons, go for it! IDK about other people, but from the two people I talked to about reiners, they actually like them just slightly sickle hocked too, i guess because they think the horse gets into the ground more. She looks great to me, and if she's at a good price right now, why not? Hopefully the market will pick up soon. >crosses fingers< Hope that helps a bit!
