4 year old AQHA mare - "Holly"

So I'm very, very new at this, but I liked seeing the critques of various horses and wanted to see if I could get some more opinions on my mare. She turned 4 on March 28th this year (2012). I am curious to see a more specific review of her confirmation, so thanks in advance for any insight! =)

I'm not sure if these pictures are enough to critique (as they are in-motion shots)? If not, can anyone suggest more angles and placements for a better critique and I'll post more?

You need to get pics of her squared up for an accurate critique

Squared up, both side, front and behind. Straight on shots

Cant really tell you much apart from the back that her back is a little long in those photos, and she appears to have a decent shoulder and neck set.

Thank you! I'm going to be honest, I've never known the technicals of confirmation, and I'm very interested in learning as I see a lot of talk about how it can affect performance abilities in more ways than I imagined. I've always picked mine based on a few things for barrel horses: Short back, long underline, nice slope on shoulder to look for stride ability, and the slope of the backside compared to the front.

My concern with my girl when I got her was that her butt seemed a little high. She is a very "cowy" mover. I'm just interested in understanding how to better assess confirmation, so I greatly appreciate the advice!

I'll take some better pics today and repost for a better view.

Thanks! =)
