    Critique 2year old QH

    April was 2 in April lol
    I posted pics before for a Critique BUT my pics sucked! So are these better?
    She will be mainly a trail horse but would also like to do some barrels ( if she makes at least 14h that is!) She is a super sweet girl :) And the older she gets the bigger her butt gets lol OH and I know her feet are bad! Our farrier fell off a horse and broke his hip! So its been tough to find another farrier but we found one and he's coming Sat!

    These pics aren't good for a critique either. She needs to be squared up. Form what I can see she is over at the knee, sickle hocked, and her pasterns look long and have an odd angle to them, but this could be due to the pictures. Her front right foot looks really off to me. Neck could be under muscled can't tell for sure since her head is down grazing. Longish back, straight in the hip. NIce booty!!!! Pretty gal I love her mane as well. Try to get better pics of her squared up not grazing.

    Have someone help you who can hold the horse while you photograph her. Place her on a level hard surface and have the handler keep her standing squared, head-up and facing the right direction. Take photos from straight on to each side, straight on to her behind and from the front. Hold the camera level so that you aren't getting pictures from odd angles.

    How To Take A GOOD Conformation Photo Of Your Horse.
    Do
    Take a left-side profile of your horse.
    Place your horse's entire body, including its head, at a 90-degree angle to the camera. This, and standing your horse on level ground, will ensure that its proportions appear accurate in the photo.
    Consider banding, braiding, or combing your horse's mane over if it falls on the left side and is particularly long. This will give the judge a clearer view of the neck.
    Place your horse in a well-lit, simple setting with little distractions.
    Fit your horse's entire body in the picture, but make sure your horse isn't so far away that it's hard to see.
    Try to keep the person holding the horse's lead rope out of the shot.
    Make sure your horse is clean and well-groomed.
    Put your horse in a well-fitted halter, preferably a solid color. Your halter doesn't have to be expensive or as fancy as this mare's, but it should fit well.
    Photo 2 Try your best to get your horse's ears up and alert. Do something that will pique your horse's interest, but not spook it. Some people throw grass or sand in the air, shake grain in a bucket, shake a bag or other noisy object (Be careful if your horse spooks!), lead another horse in front of the model horse, or make a funny noise.
    Be intentional. You want your horse to look its best!

    Don't
    Place your horse in a distracting setting. The more going on in the background, the less focus on your horse.
    Include the handler in the photo. Again, it distracts attention away from the horse.
    Take a picture where your horse has its leg cocked, like this gelding's left hind foot.
    Put your horse in a halter that's too big or otherwise ill fitted. It looks sloppy and can alter the appearance of your horse's features.
    Stand your horse on a slope.

    Take a picture of your horse at an angle--it skews your horse's proportions.
    Outfit your horse in bell boots or any other kind of tack.
    Take a right-side profile.
    Include any other horses in the photo.
    Catch your horse snoozing


    Also She Looks like she needs a little weight put on her you can see her back bone.

    From these photos:
    Long, weak back and weak coupling. She will need lots of trotting up hills and trotting over caveletti to help her support her back. Hocks are big and roomy and set nice and low but her hind legs may be over angulated (better photos would help). Front legs seem to be a bit light in bone. She looks a bit slipper footed.. her heels seem to have been cut to short in front and her toes a bit long, making her pasterns seem a bit long and slopey.

    She may have a good shoulder and neck set, but grazing it is impossible to tell.

    Her halter is too large (she could easily get a foot through the noseband and become hung up and panic). She appears to need a bit of weight.. looks to me as if she is getting poor quality hay and is developing a hay belly trying to eat enough to have adequat nutrition. If the hay is good (has it been TESTED for NDF, ADF, Protien and Energy) then she needs more feed. If she is a hard keeper, adding a quarter cup of corn Oil 1X a day will add calories w/o adding bulk. If you do feed the corn oil, you will need to feed a bit of supplement with vitamin E as corn oil can interfere with the absorption of vitamin E.
