Purely from that picture I’m leaning towards female. But I am still learning.
Me too, I think ! She has been called a female for a while by her previous owner but my son wants her to be a boy:) doesn’t really matter to me:)

Thank you!! So what do y’all think... male or female? Still too early maybe... I think she looks female but I guess I’m hoping I’m wrong:)
I think she is too young. Another thread was talking about size of spurs and according to that, she would be male. I think it said, same size spurs mean male, one big and one small, female. I looked at Tibby’s and she looks male according to that thought. This is just what one vet told someone. We have just been curious about its validity. I’m undecided on whether I want Tibby to be a male or female. She looks girlie to me but I think I’m just crazy.
