critique my new paint please :)

this is dixie. 15.2-3hh 10 year old mare. "frosted fairy flakes" is her registered name. take into consideration that a few of her pictures are on very hilly land. she is actually quite level. [withers about even with the top of her butt]. these pictures are not the greatest. i pick her up on september 1st so i will update with better pictures once i get her. just interested to see what yall think of her. for what i paid, and her temperament..she is very calm and well mannered. best ground manners i have ever seen on a horse. i think i got a great deal. i only paid $550.00 for her... she is just going to be my trail mare. so no fancy showing or anything.

Cant tell much from the pictures to get a good conformation critique.

But i really really like her! She looks overall like a nice mare. I think you got a steal!

Love her, she looks adorable :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

She stands close behind and is camped under.. a bit sickle hocked... her hind toes seem to point straight forward which is incorrect. You want the hind toes to point out a bit which allows the hind leg to work like a spring to drive the horse forward. The hind leg is actually designed like a spiral so the hind toes should point out a bit. Toes forward usually indicate bowed hind legs. She is built downhill. She has a nice long hip and is very Quarterhorse is type.

She has a nice shoulder, but her humerus lays a bit flat which restricts her movement. You can see this in the trotting picture.

She has a lovely neck and head and very very pretty markings! Enjoy her!

thank you very much for the critique. i do not think she is down hill though.. those may be the pictures because she is quite level in person. i will just have to get better pictures when i pick her up. i appreciate the time and honesty everyone.
