This is Skippin Sweet Eyed Josey, aka Josey. She is a 2007 model and is a grulla going grey. Her daddy was Two Eyed Eternally, a grey QH and her mother was a dun factored grade Quarab. She stands 14hh and is pretty athletic. She has a super sweet personality once she knows you, but doesn't like strangers. She had a fairly rough beginning going through two auctions by the time she was two and then had a bad rider when she was broken out to ride. She is going to be my next trail horse. I was going to use her for Extreme Cowboy Racing, but she tore a hind ligament this spring and therefore is not able do the races. I would like a thorough critique, cause I am considering breeding her to either a QH or an Arabian Cross. So I want to know what her shortcomings are and what type of stallion I should be looking for to best suit her.

I am sorry, I am not a good Conformation person, but I really like this mare, Grullo is my favorite, but I can't say I have seen a graying one before. should be interesting.
as far has her conformation, I see a nice muscle tone,she looks sturdy.
Maybe its the angle, but the first picture, she looks a little straight on her hind legs, I think it is how she is standing though.

That's all I got, sorry! I really love her though, I could see her being a good trail horse :)

Can you resize the photos? I'm having a really hard time with them at this size.

Look into Ackerman performance horses out of CO. they have a gorgeous Hollywood Dunit Buckskin Stud that looks part Arab, but is full AQHA. All of this babies are stout, but have is beautiful dished face! I want to breed my Arab mare to him someday for a performance horse!

Wow, she is one nice little girl! I love everything about her. Too bad shes greying out. Her grulla color is striking.

I don't think you should breed her...I think you need to send her to me. She is stunning!!!

This is a quality looking horse, never mind the color, I am not impressed by any colors. There is not one thing on this mare that I don't like.

pretty mare. grulla dont grey. She would be considered gray or roan.
She is a nice looking mare, but since she is not registered , I would not breed her. If you are looking to raise a horse, you can probably find a weanling at one of the sales with similar lineage for fairly cheap.
