Critique 10 Yr. APHA Mare

New on here and just wanted to see what everyone thought of my mare. My feelings won't be hurt. She is in pasture condition right now.

It's a little hard to tell from the pics, but I certainly think he is a great looking mare and looks pretty sturdy!!:)

Can't tell much from the pictures. She's a cute chunk though. Get someone to stand her square for you and take pictures on both sides from about barrel height. One from the back and front too.

She does look sturdy.

From what i can tell, she has a nice big shoulder, though a tad upright
Thick neck
Back is a good length
Very chubby!
I love her bum ;) nice, sloping hindquarters
Front legs look good. Hoof angle is a little too sloped
Possibly a little sickle-hocked in the back legs, but i doubt very severely

Nice horse. Little straight and sickle'd thru the hocks. Base of neck a bit thick (might inprove with less weight). Shoulder is not ideall would like a higher and more open angle at point of shoulder. Lovely topline, strong coupling, good rear end and correct front leg.

Her over all look is very nice. I would want to get her out of that pasture and work her! Nice package.

Thank you all so much for the opinions. A mare we bought one time was pregnant and this is the baby we got. I have had her since she was born and I just love her. I mostly trail ride her, she has the get up and go for barrels though.
