You will need squared pictures to be able to judge her conformation correctly, however she seems to be slight in bone and undermuscled. She's also over at the knee. She's a pretty color though

Please tell me you're not actually being serious...

Just because a mare/stallion is "such a purdy color!" DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD BREED IT. There are enough fugly, lame, unwanted, slaughter-bound foals out there because people had to breed the pretty colored horsies...cause you know, conformation doesn't matter at all, color does!

By slight in bone I mean she's not really got much bone substance. Her legs are thin and she's just not thick in general. Her bones are thinner than id like to see in a QH. With the knees the part under her knee isnt straight down.. it kind of curves inward under the knee.

And yes im hoping whoever said that about the color was joking!! A pretty color does NOT mean a worthy of reproducing horse!

I am not a breeder, nor do I want to so don't worry about that.....i am also not looking for the perfect conformation cause I don't believe there is such a thing as "the perfect conformation" as people have there own views as to the likes and sports they are involved in.......but I do want to make sure she has decent conformation and nothing that will lead to issues especially health later in life..... that being said.......what do you think!!!!

How old is she? She looks to be a little lighter over all than I like to see a QH, not just weight but substance too. She's got a very pretty face and neck from what I can see, and if I could look up her pedigree, I'd tell you if there's anything I'd worry about. What's her registered name? What's her training?

TexasBlaze, so over at the knee is when the cannons curve? Are you seeing this in the hind or front legs? In this picture I think I see what you are talking about... I will have to look closer tomorrow... does this lead to any health issues?
I agree about the bone mass in her legs they are thin I noticed it right off the bat when we first looked at her...not as much as i'm use to with other QH's i'v owned she is a small girl though maybe 14-14.3 hds..
