Well, she's just about old enough to wean, and here are photos taken of our only foal for 2005.
She showed against three other weanling mares and in the age class, she took firsts, but then lost out to older mares in the Amateur and Youth classes.
In the AMHA portion, she ended up losing out almost exclusively to smaller, stockier girls.
Oh, well. I like her and feel she will blossom as a yearling. I think she may be a tad light right now, and maybe that is what the judges were seeing?
My only gripe is her neck set on her shoulders, at this point! I doubt it will change, but maybe as she fills in a little, it will look less obvious? I mean the point in front of her withers on the top of the neck.
I LOVE this girl's topline...wow!
She has NO "V" in these pics, I actually clipped it all off and clipped a bit down her tailbone on top. *LOL*
Oh, btw, she is 27.25" tall and four months old on the 21st. I am HOPING she is 32" or thereabouts. Mom is 31 and dad is 33.50".
I should soon have better photos as we are taking her up to Stacy's for Liz McMillan photos!!!
Thanks for looking!
