Red face another critique on new mare Dixie..? better pictures

15.2-3hh registered paint mare. "frosted fairy flakes" is her name. i previously asked for a critique but many of you wanted better pictures. so i tried my best. keep in mind the ground is uneven and my angling isnt the best yet.. :) shes a very sweet girl. be as brutally honest as you need to be. she will mainly be used as a trail horse.. no big expectations.

I'm not a big paint/AQHA fan, however, she looks fairly well built! I love her behind! She also has a decent shoulder. Her neck looks a little under muscled but it has nice shape.
She has kind eyes too - good find!

Love, Sara

Overall a nice looking girl. She looks a little sickle hocked and post legged in the rear, but nothing that should hinder her from doing what you want with her. Have fun!

she is sickle hocked and a bit straight over all behind. She has a nice long hip. Her croup is a bit steep. Her shoulder is a bit more upright than I like and her angle from point of shoulder to elbow is a bit flat. Her withers are nice and carry nicely into her back. Her neck has a good set. Her bone is good.

Pretty color, and she fits together well. Looks a good temperament and that is likely the real 'gold' of this horse.

I don't have a clue about critiques, but I love to go through and look at the pretty ponies, lol. And she is beautiful! I LOVE her eyes and mouth! Her eyeliner is natural, right? I have heard you can tattoo eyeliner to prevent eye problems. And how her lip is so dark compared to her body brown- is that a trick of lighting? I thought when a horse is a paint, it is only one shade of brown and the white (and if not, it might be a chimera under certain testable circumstances) ? Or is it due to sun bleaching on the rest of her body? Either way, wow, she is a keeper! :P If she ends up at my place, I am truly not sure how she got there! :P

^ a lot of bay or brown horses (whichever is her base color) have grey muzzles, which is what you're seeing on this horse. If her markings were any higher up you'd see the grey fade to brown.
