Tell me what you think

I just got a new girl... I love her to pieces already!! But honestly I know nothing about her.. I'm still new to owning horses, though my family is not.. I have no idea how tall she is, her correct color, or her breed??? I know I sound awful... but I would like to know what you guys think.. it may be hard to tell by just looking at a photo online, but I would love to her some opinions so I'm not completely oblivious to her specifications. thanks!!!(:

She is the only horse in my "barn" on here. Red. I would LOVE to hear opinions.

She is chestnut (sorrel) and cute, that's all we can tell from this picture :). For breed guesses and height, we need at least a full body shot, better yet a proper conformation shot from the side, taken at the height of her shoulder.

She is chestnut, and looks to be between 15 and 16hh, although it's pretty much impossible to say from a photo, especially as we don't know how tall you are! She looks sweet and pretty, but I can't tell you much about her breed from those photos - can you not contact the person you got her from and ask? Enjoy her, she looks lovely, best of luck to both of you

I thought she was sorrel!!! But I do this thing, where I am afraid to be wrong and sound dumb (: lol!!!! thank you!!!(: she is such a sweet heart... I will post a picture of her full body. I'm actually at work and I know I have one on my phone, Its not at the height of her shoulder. but in my barn under her name on her, there is a photo where I am standing next to her and I am about 5'3" if that helps???

Oh and thank you so much for your reply!(:

I really appreciate your reply(: thank you

If you are only 5'3" then I'd guess she's closer to the 15'0 hand side of things. You can buy a measuring tape pretty cheap at most tack stores or online and then you'll know for sure. I'd guess she's some sort of quarter horse cross.

Thanks for your reply!! I thought the same thing.. though I'm not very good at being able to tell different breeds unless it's something more obvious haha like I know the difference between a quarter horse and a draft haha! I'm probably going to measure her just to make sure, even though it doesn't really matter to me, I think it would be something I should know!

So, I am honestly curious and really don't mean this to come off rude.

If you don't know any of this info on her ...how exactly did you come about purchasing her? Generally these are things that would be posted on the horse's sale add, or you/your trainer should ask/already know upon trying the horse out. Or is she a family member's horse?

She is cute though!

You didn't come off as rude!!! And thank you, she is a cutie pie, and has a personality to match!!!

She was actually bought from an auction and friends of ours bought her, they are amish and their daughter wanted her, and they were wonderful with her. She had already known how to neck rein and she had a really nice stop, just a dream under saddle.

She sold her to us only because she would ride her very long distances, and she's really fast, but she isn't a long distance runner.

Anyway haha yeah, auction horse. Nothing wrong with her, she has been vet checked. I kinda lucked out because she is wonderful.
