She's pretty and very "typey". In the barn photo, her condition looks good. Don't let her get any fatter, though.

Thank you tinyliny!

She doesn't get fat easily, on the contrary. Even at this condition you can super easily feel all her ribs and they show when she extends her sides. I intend to keep her at this weight, but don't of course want her to get fat :) Due to the winter and slippery arena (we don't have indoor option) she has been on quite easy work but will surely "firm" up when the snow soon melts and we get to truely work.

The biggest fault I can find is that she is definitely over at the knees. She especially appears to be this way in that barn photo, though she is angled towards the camera which may be causing an optical illusion. Hopefully this is the case.

I do like her though. She isn't the type of Quarter Horse that I see in our area....small, wide, and stocky- but she isn't in any way bad either. I like that she has a feminine, elegant look to her while also having a decent amount of bone. I'm sure she looks phenominal when she's all muscled up.

She is a beauty.
