not the best confo shots. i like her color.

The build seems solid. I see some Arab, there. IMO, she looks spooky.

I have some other pictures but can't upload them. They are in my email and the stupid computer won't let me save them to my hard drive for some reason. I can view them on Silverlight but can't save them. Anyway to bring them up on the forum from email?

I'm kind of seeing arabian/ saddlebred- type? It would be nice to have better confo pics, but she is a flashy girl, nothing glaringly wrong hits me from these pics.

Guess I wasn't seeing the arab until you guys said something. I saw the tiny legs, but now that you mention it, she does kind of have that look about her. husband doesn't like arabs and she isn't broke to ride yet. Don't think he will want to invest the time and money into breaking a part arab. The search continues...........................

Why doesn't he like arabians? I was raised on Crabbet bred arabians and they were wonderful all arounders. Endurance, trail. pleasure, jumper, reining, cutting. They were fantastic horses with fantastic minds and more then capable of any task you put them to. She looks like a solid little horse with no baggage, a clean slate, I do certainly see the arab influence.

He thinks they are are airheads and hard to handle. He prefers the QH type attitude and build but loves the paint color.

Not at all trying to talk you into an arab but maybe show you something you haven't been exposed to. Breeding has allot to do with the type of arabian. Crabbet bred arabians are known for their stocky athletic build, easy going temperament and intelligence.

It isn't me that doesn't like arabs, it is my husband. My dream horse growing up was a grey dappled arabian :-) He just has this block about arabs and doesn't want anything to do with them.
I am going to halt my search for a horse for him for awhile. Everything I find he finds something wrong with. Don't think he is ready yet.
