Here is a picture of my new Qh mare. Also a link to her pedigree. Tell me what you think.Heathers Sonnie Quarter Horse.

She is about 14.3 hands and is 8 years old. I've only had her a couple of weeks.

Are you asking for a conformation critique? The picture is not squared up enough.
For example, there's something kind of odd looking about her hind end, from the hock down. This would be more clear is the photo were squared up. Looks like her right foot almost turns to the inside and her left to the outside.
Her shoulder is nice. looks like the neck ties in a bit low.

I can't tell you anything from that pictures. Looks like she started to pivot and it put her at a really awkwarx angle.

She did start to turn toward me when I took the picture. Was trying to get a shot of her without tying her up.
what do you think of her bloodlines not real familiar with them.

Off-topic...

Waresbare, please stop sending that nasty weather you don't want down to us in Washington. Please keep it up there where it belongs.
Mud, mud, everywhere mud. Muddy hooves, muddy boots, muddy ears, muddy tack. Dark, cold, sticky, stinky, stanky mud... And it's all coming from your direction.

On-topic...
Looks like your mare was in the process of turning to the right with her front-end, then stopped before her hind-end could follow. Try a fresh pic. Or if she's actually standing square, then something odd is going on with her hind legs (I don't think she actually looks like that ). Sweet face.

Like others have said, it is hard to tell much from just that one picture but from what I can see, I don't see much that is horribly wrong with her confo. She does appear to have a very slight roach back, but that's about all I can say.

As for her bloodlines, they are pretty average. Not too many well known horses until you get 4 and 5 generations back. Even there, no super big names except for Peppy San Badger. However, he's so far back in her lines, that she likely wouldn't show much of his influence anyway. She'd probably make a very nice little all-around horse, if she isn't one already.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
