She is pigeon breasted and a bit straight through the hock (second photo). She looks pretty good otherwise. Neck ties in nicely, large roomy hocks, decent bone, decently muscled and sized hindquarters and an adequate shoulder.

One thing I notice is she is slipper footed in front. This means her toes have been let go long and her heels are cut to low. This will put a lot of strain on the tendons along the back of the cannon bone. She needs a farrier to help her in this area (shorter toes, longer heels).

Nice horse.

other than being pigeon breasted, I think she's got really good confo.

Thank you so much! I see what you mean. Before we got her she was dumped in a pasture for 6 years with nobody paying her any attention so her feet were pretty messed up. I will defiantly talk to my farrier about fixing that!
