    I'll preface this with the fact that I am not a horse fan but that said, she looks a bit big in the barrel area. THe front quarters look kind of large in relation the the back quarters to me. My 2 cents worth. Depends on what they want for her and what you want her for. Just a brood mare? Likely work OK.

    She is 15h. Short and stocky! She is a lesson horse for my daughter.

    IME mares are usually the ones that end up causing problems and getting tempermental.

    I love the colors on her. I just sold our horse this week. I'm glad I don't have that feed bill anymore.

    Quote:Same size as my Joker! He is a bay QH gelding and your mare reminds me of him. He was used as cutting horse before I had him schooled in the "English way of life", LOL.

    Your mare is very pretty.

    Thank You. I am taking my daughter up to try her out later this week. She has VERY nice ground manners, very respectful of your space. My boys are 16 and 17 hands so 15 seems short, but she IS for my 4 year old daughter and my 8 y/o old son. They ride the 17 hand one, but it was tme for another gentle horse for them to ride as well. The girl's dad rides her now, he has no horse experience, she is a nice beginner horse. The final test will be when my daughter rides her. If they click, she will come home!

    She looks like a sweet mare. She looks shorter than 15 hands. I would of said 14.1 or 14.2. I love the shorter horses. I love my mares. Out of 14 there is only one gelding and he is for my son. Most of the mares aren't moody except my contesting mare. She is can be a big pain in the butt with the other horses, but I love her. We get along great.
