Not a bad horse at all but she could stand a few more groceries.

A little under weight.
Nice shoulder and a good deep girth.
She has a bit of a "jumper's bump" (point of croup protrudes) but otherwise decent hindquarters, though they and her neck could do with some muscling.
Nice front legs, though she sits back a bit on her pasterns.
Hard to really say in that photo about her back legs. The pictures gives the impression of her being somewhat sickle-hocked.

There's a growth on her back, it looks alive- you might want to check that out.

Does she always stand exactly like that?

No, she naturally has a very square stance, but I guess she like to pose? Hahaha

I don't think I've seen a horse stand like that; with it's front legs crossed. You sure she hasnt' been drinking behind your back? I mean, look at her face?!

I am just kidding!!!

She has a big shoulder and short canons on the rear. Her front legs seem kind of light of bone and the hoof angle seem pretty flat, not much heel and too much toe.

has a nice hip.
