    Faye, it looks OK. I'd make sure your neck line is ended at the poll (you haven't gone quite far enough), and make sure your humorous line is landing on the elbow.

    I decided to try a halter QH to see what I came up with. Are these points right? I had some trouble with the point of hip and stifle....Either my points are way off or this horse shouldn't be a halter horse! Lol

    Any suggestions for freeware paint programs that will run on a mac?

    So I just measured my pic up - but I don't know. I think my wither is too far back? The pictures not great either..

    What are the spots like, do I need to move some?

    Okay. I think I figured it out. My measurements were so wonky before because my BitRuler was measuring in inches. Anyway, I copied equiniphile's list because she seems to have a lovely understanding of this, but I substituted my measurements, obviously. So here's Attempt #2:

    Body Length - 334
    Shoulder Length – 109
    Shoulder/Body – 32.6%
    Humerous - 80
    Humerous/Shoulder – 73.4%
    Shoulder slope – 57.3
    Shoulder Angle – 87.74
    Forearm - 80
    Cannon - 49
    Pastern - 24
    Forearm/Humerous – 100%
    Cannon/Forearm – 61.3%
    Pastern/Cannon – 49%
    Illium – 112
    Illium/Body – 33.5%
    Femur - 111
    Femur/Body – 33.2%
    Pelvis - 105
    Back - 155
    Back/Body – 46.4%
    Ribcage - 152
    Ribcage/Back – 98%
    Neck – 146
    Neck/Body – 43.7%

    Long humerous. Shoulder could be a little bit longer. Shoulder is sloped a bit too much. All of these could just be because she is standing with her front legs back, but I’m not sure. Her cannon is pretty good. I’m not sure the actual length in inches, but she weighs about 1250lbs (she’s a big girl haha). Pasterns are pushing being a bit long? Femur and illium are about equal, that’s good right? Her pelvis should be a bit longer though. Her back could probably be a bit shorter, but her ribcage is fine. Her neck is pretty average sized, isn’t it?

    Equiniphile... here's what I got. The thing about big beefy QH Halter horses is you have to make sure you're finding the bone structure, not the musclature
