Crit my APHA mare please? :)

She's 13, had a pretty easy life, a very western ride. Her hooves are a work in progress. Sole pressure after a trim prevented us from shoeing her. Horseshine and regular trimming has really helped though! She's no longer lame.

I think she looks a bit out of proportion. Her butt doesn't really sit right with the rest of her body(I know what that's like, one of my horses has it, lol).

Her butt looks a little small but I'm not sure if that's because it is, or because of her huge head!

It's hard to judge by pictures. I'm used to big butts. My other horse has the biggest butt in the barn, haha.

I think her porportions are good. She has nice legs , fore and hind, nice short canon. There's a bit of a puff at the hock, not sure waht that is. Overall, I think she's nicely built.

Would you describe where you see it? Both or just one hock?

I'm just impressed with you getting pictures of her squared while tied! Though I can't say anything about conformation, she seems like a good girl.

I squared her up by picking up her feet and moving them where I wanted. My horses know hand signals. Palm facing them (like hi) as stay and palm to the sky (as if you have a treat in your hand) means come. If you'll look closely, she's not tied, the lead is just thrown over the t post cap. I chant stay and babble to keep them from averting their attention and moving their feet. It also helps that she's an incredibly calm mare.
