Critique my old Appy?

She passed away 6 years ago, and I don't really have any good conformation shots... But I was just wondering what you guys thing of her conformation.. Pros and cons?
Note: In the third picture her hind legs are a little far out behind her because she had Cancer in her abdominal region in front of her hind legs.. It's what looks like a hay belly.. Also, at the time we didn't know she had cancer, we actually thought she just had a hay belly

I'm sorry for your loss, poor girl looked pregnant. I can't imagine dealing with a horse with cancer, although I know several friends who have.

These are not the best photos for a critique, all I can tell is she is cute and seemed like a sweetheart.

I lost a mare to abdominal cancer too, we didn't know until the tumor got so big it was pressing on her spine and she could barley walk. I knew there was something wrong when I went to ride her and she didn't wouldn't go faster then a walk(and she loved to gallop through the fields). It took 3 vet visits(and some chiro's in between) on the final vet visit the vet did a rectal exam and felt everything was pushed up into her spine. That was about 9 years ago now, I think I was 18 when we put her down.

I think she was absolutely perfect & she would be hard to replace.
Cherish her memory.

Aww thank you everyone.. She was my soulmate, she has a spot in my heart that will never be replaced. She was super super kind and the most trustworthy horse I've ever met, and the most trusting too. She actually saved my life

I really like her head. She has a calm sweet face. I also like her knee markings. Did you guys go camping a lot? I got to take my mare camping for the first time for both of us last year. It was so much fun!
