No critique on the horses, but you need to re-adjust your hackamore. Its too low on Bailey's face and can interfere with her breathing/break her nose where it is.

It should be positioned about where your cavesson for her tie-down is, like this.

your horses are very cute by the way :)

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Bert: Nice shoulder, decent length back and appears to be in good flesh. He needs some better farrier care as he has underslung heels and if kept at these angles, he will probably become lame. He has a short undermuscled neck, almost flat croup, and looks to have a hunter's bump as well. Can't tell for sure from the picture, but he appears cow hocked as well.
Bailey: Very weak topline, lacking muscling & strength. High set hocks & knees, but adequate bone for a slender horse. Nice long neck but again almost atrophied in the muscling except one spot, the place near the poll where there is a bulge of muscle from resisting incorrect face/mouth pressure. Upright shoulders, but she does have a nice head & kind eye. She has a nice short, coat.

The bay has shown very good improvement, I thought it was a different horse. Bailey needs a lot of groceries and muscle. Her backs a wee long and she's built downhill but that could be how she's standing. I know this isn't a riding crit, but let your stirrups down a hole or two.

Live to ride. Ride to live.
