15yr old paint mare...critiques wanted

I know she isn't perfect so I'm not expecting floods of praise. I want to know her major flaws. Sorry I don't have better pictures but if you would like I have a album of her on my page to where you could get more views.

Well.. She is toed out. Long cannons. Thick neck- ties in low at chest. Steep shoulder.

It means her neck connects the chest down low. Now that I look at it again, it may not, there is a part where I am not sure if that is her chest or neck..

Her shoulder is quite upright, which makes her neck appear off.
Wide in the front end
Bum high and a little swayed in the back
Nice, deep girth and her legs look good, especially in that first photo, where she is standing reasonably straight. May be a tad sickle-hocked in the back, but doesn't appear as though it would be too severe.
