Critique Selena [Again :P]

I actually got her to stand still for a decent shot this time :P So here she is.




Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I see you are trying to make her an Appaloosa in the second photo.. LOL

Her shoulder is a bit steep and she needs conditioning but her body is very 'breedy.' Her legs.. she is light in bone in front and has small knees and fetlock joints. Her hocks are small and round and a bit too high making for a slightly over straight hind leg.

From the rear she looks to stand a bit close and be a bit bow legged. Her toes should point out to the side a bit.. or the hind leg cannot work as 'designed' which is a spiral construction that works like a spring.

Not a bad horse. Like bays.

If her feet are really that large, GREAT. If she is in need of a trim.. not so much.

She looks horrible and mean, and fat, nothing but trouble. I will take her off your hands, deliver her anytime (with the sparkle spots).

Noooo Wares D: That's my sparkleh butt.

Yeah she is definitely built downhill. It's been a battle to keep her off her forehand, but she is definitely a lot better than she was.

And yes, she IS fat, and does need conditioning...I ride her every day but for some reason the little brat won't lose weight. She's such a witch, she chases all the boys off their food and eats triple what she's supposed to. I think I need to seperate her lol

Thanks you guys
