Critique these two paint geldings

Below are two paint geldings, each around 9-10 years old. The mostly white (horse A) is 15.3 The half and half (horse B) is probably not quite 15. Let's hear it! (please note that it was feeding time, and horse B is not exactly cooporative. I'm unsure of why he is standing the way he is in the rear view, as that is not a posture i have ever seen, and I was not taking the pictures so I didn't notice until i had left)

You appear to live in a beautiful part of the country!

Mare 1 - pretty head and color, neck slightly short, it ties in ok and with better muscle shape would look better; shoulder a bit on the steep side, as is his croup. Slightly long back and longer through his coupling. Pasterns decent angle. Quite light on bone, in particular his canons. Also very narrow chested. From the front view it also looks like his canons deviate from the knees a bit. In the 2nd photo he looks quite sickle hocked, but in the first one not nearly as bad. Heels on the front feet look under run (though hard to say for sure in the sand). Those front legs would suggest that high impact sports might not be the best bet for this horse.

Horse 2 - nice solid looking fellow standing on good bone. Has a bit shorter and stronger topline than the first horse. However he is straighter on both ends - straight shoulder and somewhat post legged in the back - may make for a rougher ride. Neck is a decent length, but a bit ewed - I would guess this horse goes around with his head up in the air quite a bit. A good using sort that looks like he would be versatile to a variety of uses but would benefit from lots of long and low work and being ridden from the back forward to get his neck muscles flipped around (top muscle stronger than the bottom one)

Horse 'A' (sorrel tobiano?) is a little down hill (built for speed- vroom!) Straight hind and forelegs- look pretty correct- neck ties in higher on the chest- cute head and face shape- like how everything is fairly symmetrical and good. I would like to see his feet and all in the front picture.


Horse 'B' (Bay tobiano) even backed- straight. Forelegs -hinds look too straight- lol, hes standin like a bulldog in that last picture- does he always stand that wide or was he bein silly for the picture? he almost looks ewe necked but isnt- neck ties in higher on the chest- clean throat latch- like the width between his chest.

Very pretty guys!

Horse A has some dodgy looking hooves. Definitely overdue for some decent trimming.

True story, they grew pretty quickly and I haven't had a chance to go out for a few weeks. Luckily they are getting a trim tomorrow. I'll post new pictures of legs tomorrow night with new trimming. His feet tend to flair out pretty badly and needs to be trimmed more often than most.

totally being silly for the picture. The guy that feeds was coming by, we had stopped by to snap these pictures after work. He was more concerned with making sure the feed made it into his bucket than standing still for me! My SO took the pictures, and wasn't sure of what exactly I needed in a picture, my fault for not communicating. Hopefully going to get better pictures this weekend on more solid ground.
