Critique my paint mare?

Just curious for opinions. I was having a little trouble to get her to stand still, lol. Excuse her sweatiness, we just finished a ride. :)

She has a bit thick of a neck, smaller head, and no real chest. Bit steep of a croup and high set tail too. She does have a nice short back (except it does curve up a bit near her croup) and legs, decent confo, none of the above really aren't serious like leg "defects."

I think she has too small of a head and too thick of a neck. I don't really like the slope of her shoulder and she could use a bigger hip. She may be a little cow hocked in the hind legs but nothing at all serious.
Overall though, she's got pretty good conformation.

I am going to give this a try, shes shaped simaler to my gelding.
Her neck ties in a little low to her chest.
Shes slightly toed out in the the back.
The second picture makes her pasterns look little weak.
Same squishy quarter horse bum as my boy, he can really use it too! ;)

Live to ride. Ride to live.
