She is an AQHA mare 1998 model. Her registered name is Showtime No HBO. You can see her pedigree on allbreedpedigree.com if you are curious. What I can tell you is that she has Impressive on both sides. She is HYPP negative.
The pros for her is that she is fairly well broke, she can side pass and back up nicely,(but does not neck rein) is calm on the trails, she loads easily, stands for farrier, utd on shots. Her owner says that although she has never offered to buck or kick, she still would not consider her for a novice rider. (fair enough)
The cons is that she can be rude and bossy. She says that when she lunges her she does a lot of ear pinning, and head shaking. But a when put in her place by a strong leader she settles right down. That is why she says she wouldn't put her with a novice. This horse will take over in a heart beat if she thinks she can.
She said that she got her as a rescue who was terribly thin. She has had her since Jan and has been working on getting some weight back on her. I have pictures of what she looks like now and what she looked like as a young horse. I guess she has a few halter points, not that it matters.
|This is when she was younger, I'm not sure what age.|
|This is what she looks like now.|
It seems to me like her feet could use some work
but can't tell for sure and don't have any close ups.
Owner says she is sound though.
|She kind of looks like she has a grumpy face to me|
But it could just be the pic itself.
I assure you that I am not bringing this horse home to my house. But as it turns out my very good friend Jamie is moving to Oregon, which is where this mare is. For the first time in years she will be living in a place where she can have a horse again. She is not a novice rider, by any means so this girl might be a good fit for her.
Again, I am asking for honest opinions on what you guys see, or don't see. I look at her and think that she isn't too bad. Not drop dead gorgeous, but not bad.
