Critique my mare?

So this is my dearly beloved girl, who will always be perfect in my eyes, but I'd like to know what you think, too! She's a 12 year old Morgan/Tennessee Walker cross mare.

I got her as square as I could, the gnats and mosquitoes were out in full force and we'd just gotten done with our ride and she was a bit sweaty....

She's beautiful! I love her big hip! She has a nice slope in her shoulder, bet she moves that front end really well. And that big hip gives quite a bit of impulsion too. Looks like her hind toes turn out slightly, but she's pretty square. She's pretty proportionate throughout her body. Lovely mare! It would be fun to see her move under saddle!

Thanks! She CAN really move, had planned to get video today but she was in season, the neighbor was lunging his stud, and I was bareback... The video would NOT have been pretty! I'll try for tomorrow.... oh, and the right hind is not quite that toed out normally, though it is toed out a bit, I had to pull her tail to get her to set both feet down because the gnats were so bad she kept kicking. Darn fly spray was in the other car with my daughter.

Thanks everyone, I know this is going to sound stupid, but about 4 or 5 days after I bought her I stopped by my trainer's house to go for a ride. I looked around and saw this gorgeous creature and looked at the trainer and said "is THAT my horse??" I looked at her when I bought her, but didn't step back and take an over-all good look with her blanket off, I guess. My trainer certainly got a kick out of it!
