    Default hello, new filly!

    I've not been here for ages as my poor horse was killed early this year and I had decided on a complete break from equines. However I haven't lasted very long and have bought myself a coblet! Thought I'd post pics and get some opinions of her. I wanted her as soon as I saw the photos online but she is a bit thin and had been out on the lincolnshire wash, so probably hasn't had the best of starts. She is meant to make 14hh + but I'm not so sure. She measures approx' 12.3 ad she is a year and a few months old now. What do peeps on here think she might make? I haven't seen mum or dad and have to apply for a passport! Doh, only found out she didn't have one when she was delivered!




    I ride well, I enjoy my horses but I don't chase british wildlife for fun. End of.

    She has such a kind face

    She sounds like she will make 14/14.1hh. But it's really hard to tell with youngsters, she may surprise you

    You could do the sting test- measure her from her knee to the coronet band, and that should equate roughly to what she will make as an adult . Loopy did a thread on it a while ago, and it proved to be a fairly accurate method (although I keep forgetting to do my pair!).

    Oh she's beautiful! I'm not a coloured cob person but I think she's stunning!

    Smile because it happened.

    lol, nor am I normally! I had a cob once and he was the trimmed and hogged variety, it must be old age as the last horse was an ex racer. He did put me in a coma for three weeks though so I think the change might do me good. I think I might have her as a traditional, unless all the mud drives me nuts over the winter!
