Critique My Buckskin QH/Possible QH mix
 
Her name is Emmy, she's 6. I don't know much about her, besides the fact she's QH. Personally I don't think she's entirely QH, certainly not foundation.

Oh she's cute!

What makes you think she's not full QH? I'd believe it. I'd believe she's got quite a bit of foundation blood in her too.

She's got a longer back, steeper croup, lower neck tie in and a thick neck at that. But I don't see any glaring faults. I think she's a nice little horse that could use some muscle toning.

I'm with CL, what makes you think she isnt full? She does need some toning.... How tall is she do you know? In one pic she looks a little cow hock...a little not much..and it could be the picture and stance. Get some pics in some good confo stances. Straight and level. She does look like a nice mount though! What are you interested in her for?

I agree with CL and LT5. Quarter horse. slight cow hocks. She is not a "bulldog" style quarter, but very much quarter looking.

Mostly just an odd feeling, especially since her legs look super long. More so in person. We have an unregistered Doc Bar horse on the ranch, and they used to share a pasture together. I suppose next to that huge mass of muscle and stubby legs it can make you second guess slightly.

And probably trail horse or trail trials. She has a fantastic disposition-- she is very calm, confident, and fearless. She goes over anything. I've never seen her spook, not even when we encountered a snake outside her gate (thankfully its a gopher snake) or when bicycles/motorcycles come up behind her.

But I'm asking for a critique mostly because I was thinking about doing some training for Gymkhana.

And she's 15 or 15.1 hands

ladytaurean515 06-10-2012 09:47 PM

She could tone up a little more and that will fill her out more. I have 2 reg qh that are 15.2 and 16 hands....the 16 has legs on her but when I work her she bulks up and thickens. Sounds like a nice horse. Mind if I ask what are they asking for her?

Peachy505 06-10-2012 09:59 PM

I bought her for $1500. She knows only the bare basics (W/T/C) and she's unregistered.

ladytaurean515 06-10-2012 10:06 PM

I think you got a good deal then...how does she move under you?
