I am going to look at this sweet, crazy-eyed paint filly on Saturday. She has been traded around from auction to auction in her short lifetime, and is currently with a rescue organization. She is halter broke and is being sold for $350. I'm buying her as a project for my dad (who has trained horses before) and I to work on this upcoming year. I have not actually bought a horse before (I do have 2 senior mares who I rescued from bad neglect situations) and would like some opinions on her conformation. Are there any BYC horse experts out there who can criticize this young filly's conformation? It looks to me like her back and pasterns are a little long, and her hips are somewhat short. She is grade, about 13 hh at the withers, and is believed to be between 1 and 2 years old. Do you think she is worth $350? Thanks in advance! :)
I am going to look at her this afternoon. I also received a few more current pictures from the owner.
