Conformation Critique?

Could you please critique my mare Sheena? I know she's not the greatest looking gal, but I love her and just want to know you're thoughts!

I'll start by saying that I like her but not because of her conformation, because of her attitude..you can really tell she enjoys her job.

But as far as her conformation goes, to me it looks like she has an ever so slightly too large a head, a short, thin, somewhat ewed neck (just her muscling likely). I personally like a horse with large withers which she has, but she also has a very up right shoulder. It's hard to tell but, I also think she may be a bit calf kneed. She is up right in the pasterns but they look to be a good length. Long through the back, built uphill. I do like her hind end except for the fact that she seems straight through the stifle.

I do also tend to be very picky when I do these so some of the faults are worse than others. I just state everything I see.
