She's a little butt high, but nothing horrible. I REALLY like her, to be honest. Love her color, especially.

Overall she's a nicely balanced mare. She's buck kneed in front, and just a bit posty in the hind. She is obviously butt high, and her back may be a touch long. Overall, she looks nice!

She's nice. Nicely balanced, others have said. Her right knee is quite over (bucked knees) , or is that just becuase she was just lifting that leg at the times the photo was taken?

She is very down hill in build. However, if she is sound at age 17 and doing what you want her to do, that is all the critique she needs.

I wouldn't say she has a long back, more so, she has a good length of back but a weak loin. I'd like to see a little more depth to her heart girth, but overall I like her. Her angles match and looks like a nice functional mare.
