Former Long Islander now in the middle of the Great Lakes
I had to chuckle a bit looking at this stunning filly. Not fast enough , um could it be she is a bit metabolically challenged?? They don't usually stay this um , plump when in race training. Absolutley agree Stunning filly ..
At this time of the year you will see a lot of horses who are just coming into the tracks from the farm and they tend to be a bit on the plump side. The meet just started so a lot of the horses who haven't raced over the winter are not in shape yet.
I see a little of that sonomacounty, nothing too bad. Those traits are sought after for some things though. I like a bit of an upright shoulder in a jumper horse, for example. She's also not stood up very well in the pictures.
Her neck does look short in the pictures, but it's also held high and "pulled in". Set her up in a Hunter pose and I think you'd see a pretty nice neck
Her shoulder does seem a little straight, but she's also a bit butt-high. Hopefully she'll even out and put a LITTLE more slope to the shoulder, but the proof will really be in how she moves. I really like her
I do wonder if she'd be $5500 if she were plain bay or chestnut though
