Nothing negative jumps out for me. Looks balanced, I like the angles, the neck, and back.

I thought you were going to ride your father's horse once you sold Duffy.

Me too ;)

However, if there is something new that pops up thats worth seeing for the money I have, then I will take a look. I missed out on a bargain at the weekend, if only Duffy was sold by then- would have made a superb horse! Snapped up straight away ;)

That's a good looking horse. I like bigger bone and bigger feet and its pasterns seem a bit long but that's just me. Also, the angles through the stifle and hock seem a bit on the straight side for dressage, but it could be the way it's standing. What is it? What's it done?

4yo, just broken in. Has Donnerhall lines too... so it would be work, but might be worth checking out.

I'm a bad person though, this mare is from a breeder and there other horses are highliy priced- they know the worth of their horses.. I like getting a deal from an unsuspecting seller muahah!

thesilverspear 04-11-2012 08:23 AM

Is there any reason that this horse isn't as highly priced as their other ones?

To me, it looks like it wants to be an eventer. ;)

I just asked a friend and she said this.. the mare she is referring too, Dorina, is built downhill like a wheelbarrow.. I have to admit I don't see anything in this horse that she's describing :S

pRETTY BUT BAD CONFIRMATION, BIT OF A DORINA AND IS TOED OUT IN THE BACK. REALLY LONG AND HIGH WITHERS AND A TINY BACK, NO QUARTERS AND A BAD ANGLE OF THE ILIUM AND HIP JOINT AND I WOULD SAY QUITE LONG AND PASTERNS.

I haven't a clue! Some are maybe better breeding, better confo better movement... who knows ;)

LOL I did that with Duffy... bought a jumper instead of a dressage horse :lol:
