Critique for barrels..

I know these aren't great pictures. I'm looking for something to learn barrels on, with my trainer. What do you see wrong with this girl? I know she could use a better farrier..

Yep, the ad has been deleted is what I get as well.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Oh darn, it was just on there a few hours ago. I'm assuming she's been sold then.

What about this one? I think his shoulder seems steep, maybe but high or the angle.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...

He is pointing that left front foot. May have been an awkward camera snap.. or he may be sore in front.

He is also back at the knee on the left front. Probably also the right front.. as this tends to happen in pairs.
