Potential New Purchase, Would Love Opinions :D
 
Hi all! After reading in this forum for sometime now, I decided to join and post pictures of a 3 yr Old/reg. paint/30 days under saddle, I am considering buying. I would love to hear your opinions on her! These were taken today by the breeder, the horse loves to be around people so getting a good distance photo by herself was proving difficult, but have a look and let me know! I am just looking to use her for camping/trail riding/pleasure riding.

We need better pictures
Bigger pictures, horse squared up and on even surface.
Good luck, looks like a cutie!

Like Superstar said-these are really difficult pics to critique from , but I will say she looks a bit cowhocked in the past picture. It definitely is NOT a flattering pose for her at the very least!

agreed better pics!!

She does look a little cowhocked but for what you want her for it shouldn't be a considered a flaw.. actually tends to make em a little smoother of a ride. I had an arab mare for years (that I rode the sh!t out of- dumb younger riding years lol) that was really cow hocked, it never caused any lameness..at 26 shes still kicking and hauling around an older lady:)

IMO this girl is a cutie, and I love her "eye" she looks sweet.

Thank you for the replies! Here are a few more she just sent me, and once her husband gets home, she said she will get one of her squared up. So I will update again later on :D
I am uncertain how to make the pictures larger, as she is sending them to me through text message right now, and I am moving them to my comp and then to flickr. I will add a few of the additional pics here and link to my photo page where they are a bit larger. Flickr: OrangeDaisies' Photostream
