    I'm sorry you're feeling so down. A couple of things:

    - You had a bad ride yesterday. Can you identify anything that's different about your best and worst rides? I know with my own OTTB mare I'm...

    So true! I had to chuckle about this recently, I bought an OTTB about a month ago that was listed as 16.1. When I came out to first try the mare, I asked the seller "is she really 16.1 though?"...

    Fair enough! To my eye in person she's quite well poportioned, yes long loin but not necessarily weak? I'll wait to see if she proves herself performance wise- if not, she won't be a mama. But her...

    Sorry it took so long to post an update! I've been so busy, first we got a new Labrador and now my new mare :)

    Well, there's a difference both in terms of what is archived and search-ability, right?

    A year or ten from now people searching the OP's posts could look back up exactly what they've said, or...

    I just read this entire saga for the first time :)
    Pretty awesome that you were able to stand up for yourself and your horse in the end. I hope you two are enjoying your new non-micromanaged life...

    May I ask what it is about her pedigree that is nice? While I'm decent with NA TB lines, I know nothing about euro lines!

    Thanks, I'd appreciate it!
    I actually meant in terms of color, I assumed it wouldn't have any negative effect whatsoever on health.
    But very interesting indeed to think I could test her and she...

    I will definitely test if there is a way to in the UK- anyone know where I'd send to here?

    Chimera or somatic mutation, either way, will not effect any future foals correct?

    Oh dear...hadn't used that photobucket account for YEARS...that slipped by me! thank you!

    The owner did warn me that I might want to drive out non-locally for her first dressage test outings ....because the spot on her butt is so memorable that the local judges won't forget if she makes...

    To update everybody: I went back out today to take the mare out hacking and to pop over some x-country jumps in an open field. Afterwards and offered to buy her on the spot. She's been out of work...

    I've never seen a 'blood mark' on a bay before but you are right, its probably either this or a sooty spot, more likely than sabino/rubicano or something even more rare....I'd be interested to hear...

    For anyone curious about what happened with this mare, I went to see her yesterday and really liked what I saw in terms of movement and how she's put together. She's been schooled previously but is...

    ::facepalm:: augh, i'm sorry! I'm rather awful speller if I'm not properly focusing on it. I often have to edit posts because even my auto-correct can't always save me, as per here!

    My hope is to take my own pictures when I go to see her and then post back here, unless I like her so much I want to get her on the spot, but that'd take a lot as I thought that if I like her since...

    I thought so! And she does look quite little to me although the advertiser swore she is a proper 16.1. The guy sitting on her in the picture might be massive.

    Obviously I need to see her in person...
  20. TB project mare: Brood potential or no? edit: does she have a Bend Or spot?

    Hi all, would be much appreciative if anyone can tell from this picture if there are any huge red flags I'm missing in terms of a brood prospect. She's reg TB advertised for cheap as she's completely...

    Color/dilutes TBs - any racing success?

    Stumbled on this thread and since its so old didn't want to post on it, but was curious for update.
