    Well, beautiful mare but I don't like her long, sloping pasterns and straight hind leg. Does that help? What would you be using her for?

    She is a bit upright behind. I just love a nice TB mare......I would ride and breed.

    Default She's a nice filly, and she needs a home

    Why can't you buy her?

    I really like her look. I think with a bit of weight (instead of racing fit - she's not really "skinny") she will look even better!

    What everyone else said
    She is a bit straight behind, but is a very pretty girl. She looks like she wants to be yours alright!

    I agree VERY much with GoFish.

    I wouldn't breed a post/straight legged mare.

    Lovely dotty grey color. Lovely TB type too.

    I'm not seeing what you're seeing.

    As GoFish and rmh pointed out, those pasterns are not good. With this particular combo of back and front, I don't see this mare staying sound.

    And I wouldn't breed a mare with these pasterns unless she were a world-beater and I'd found a stallion who was guaranteed to produce better legs.

    (Just my opinion on her conformation as presented in that photo.)

    and I would add that she is has little feet and a small, shaved off croup, and a big barrel. I wouldn't pay 2 cents for her, even if I did just give them to you. I think some are blinded by her color. IMHO

    Have you dealt with CANTER before?

    I have not, but I looked at a very nice mare from a CANTER afiliate in the NE and there was a stipulation that the mare could NOT be used for breeding. The reasoning being that there were allready too many horses.

    Trainer listed horses generally come with no stipulations.

    CANTER horses, on the other hand, do. The difference being that the trainer listed horses are property of their owners, and the CANTER horses are property of whatever CANTER chapter you may be dealing with. You have to fill out an adoption application and sign a contract for those horses, and that contract does include a no breeding for racing stipulation.
    As far as I know, breeding for sport is just fine.

    That meet was over back in November, fat chance mare is still available...Europa did you call them like I asked you???

    If she truly was 16.2 and truly sound n sane price was awefully low for a horse they were selling that still had starts available.
    I smell fish...........

    CANTER has no rules when you buy directly from the seller, its up to you and seller to establish those guidlines.

    If you were buying a horse owned by CANTER, thats a whole nother set of stipulations.

    Unless the seller returns a horses papers to JC you can breed what ever you buy, they can't really stop you.
    Even if they withheld papers she has a lip tatto and every piece of paper you sign has a loop hole.
    What if you re-sold mare and someone else bred her.
    Or you bred to other than a TB???

    Both of you are smoking lead shanks...Her butt is no where near shaved off and her angles and proportions are lovely.
    Yes the right front pastern does look a tad long but her ankles look good n clean and she appears to have a decent round foot. Every thing faces the same direction and a leg out of each corner.
    Pedigree wise..on top being a Glitterman helps tremendously he produces lovely mares.
    The Northern Jove on bottom is nice to see. and paint her any color she is still a nicely proportioned mare from 1 view w/ 1 camera.
    I probably look at more TB's in a week than some of see in a year. Looking at to buy not voyuer and Europa has a Great eye as well
