    Default What can you tell me about this prospect? (Better pictures post #9)

    Thinking about taking a look at this filly... She is 4yrs old, I am told she is 16.2. I am looking for another jumper prospect for myself, she is close by and they not asking much for her... Would you go look?

    Can you try fixing the links again; I could not get them to work.

    Also, regarding the pedigree, although any one of those lines alone (eg Northern Dancer, Storm Cat) is not rare, I do not usually see so many great TBs in one pedigree top and bottom. And those are known sport horse lines. So fwiw, the pedigree alone *would* make me curious.

    These links should work..... These pictures are small... I can't get them to get any bigger? But you can see her shoulder and a bit of her build.

    Lovely and agree with Yankee Lawyer, except--you have Raise a Native through Alydar, which by itself wouldn't bother me. But you also have three more lines to Native Dancer through Northern Dancer. That would raise some serious questions, since that a LOT of Native Dancer. You'd find it hard to cross with any modern horse with TB lines to keep from adding more of him, and that is generally thought not to be a good idea.

    Victoria Park is one of the best Canadian broodmare sires ever and is a source of great soundness.

    Ok this is the biggest I can get the pictures and you can still see a bit of the fillies build... I am sorry but she sent me small pictures to begin with and I am not very computer savvy!


    I can't tell if she has really long pasturns or if her toes are just long and makes it look that way. She appears to have a nice shoulder to me...

    I'm not a great fan of her rear end she looks a bit up right behind. However the photos are difficult to see so aside from the above I would see her in person. I would be looking to see if she trotted clear behind - i.e. carry the action correctly with no dragging or dipping of foot while trotting. It is surprising how many horses do this.

    Didn't Alydar and Storm Cat show up on the nastiest stallion list?

    she's cute enough and young enough that if they're not asking much, she's probably worth going to look at. She's got *zero* muscle, which makes her neck look pretty awful at this point. But, you really need to see her move. I'd want to see her lunged as well as ridden, because her muscling tells me she's either VERY green, or she's not ridden correctly, which can really skew what you'd see under saddle.

    As for Storm Cat and temperament - he's her great grandsire. I have a SC granddtr who is extremely sweet. Not mild tempered, she's on the hotter side, but she's a REALLY sweet girl.

    Definitely very long pasterns and tied in behind knee quite a bit. She has very light bone and I am not thrilled with shoulder and neck...but with all that said, given time, groceries and consistent work to help her round she could be a totally different animal. Not going to change that length of pastern but at least it's angled well and doubtful she will get more bone but she does look like she could end up fairly attractive under the right circumstances. Hoopefully the ewe neck is from race training.
