    I love the New Vocations photos! From what I can tell, they have a few talented volunteers who do their conformation photos at one of the adoption centers.

    Well, this one is presented and photographed quite nicely: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...e=1&permPage=1

    I saw a bunch of pictures on their Facebook site with teh same fence background, including this one: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...e=1&permPage=1

    So, my guess is its on their property.

    If only she wouldn't need to eat. Or maybe if my family didn't need to eat...

    Wow, she is a lovely young mare. She actually looks like she's had some work, and could make someone a really nice dressage prospect. She looks uphill more than many........Wish I was looking for a prospect - I'm a sucker for a nice mare, and seem to have a chestnut bias.......

    Really nice looking mare! Oh to be rich! What are they asking for her?

    That is one heck of a horse. She's a stunner. If her brain is half as good, I'd snatch her up.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    Why hasn't she been scooped up yet! This is the description of her on the NV website. Interesting comment about her color:

    Never has one of our horses generated so much discussion online, especially about coat color! To set the record straight, the mare is correctly registered as dark bay/brown. The photo is of her after she spent a year in the Georgia sun that bleached out her coat and added the highlights to her mane and tail. The longer she is out of the intense sun and once her winter hair comes in, her coat will be almost black again.

    After only one start and earning $84, Patty didn’t show enough aptitude for the track so she was sent to us so she could find a new career that suited her better. That shouldn’t be hard because she is quiet and respectful to ride and easy to handle. Add to that her solid build, pretty face and sweet and sassy attitude, she will have no problem finding a new career in a new home. She is also very kind to her girlfriends in turnout, befriending the quiet one while calming down the anxious one. Patty will be a fun project and someone will be very lucky to have her join their family.

    Her adoption fee is $300, but you have to be an approved adopter to be able to adopt any of the New Vocation horses.

    May be my inexperienced eyes, but in the video, she looks NQR at the canter.. is that typical OTTB stiffness?

    I thought she might have a slight head bob at the trot...but my computer has been horrible with videos lately.

    Anyway, video of her under saddle:

    She's very pretty, but in all gaits, something just looks... off.

    Wow, what a well put together TB, and I'm not a TB person. I don't think she's off, she just moves like a horse that hasn't discovered her hind end. So she's strung out, inverted and not at all under herself. That would come with training and muscling.

    Don't think she's "off"; rather, she looks like a horse just starting work. W/T/C around an arena is a pretty big change from a racetrack, too. I doubt she's encountered short turns since her very early training days, if ever.

    IMNSHO she looks somewhat sickle hocked and a trifle "stabby" moving on that left hind leg. When she relaxes and lowers he head trotting she is better, maybe muscle or foot sore.

    She just doesn't know how to use her body yet. If I were looking I'd be checking her out. PPE would rule out any issues. LOL see why she didn't go well on the race track. She's not a natural great mover -she'll have to learn.

    Absolutely jaw dropping liver chestnut. For those commenting on the quality of the pictures - they were taken by Stephanie Moon Photo - they're signed on the New Vocations website:
