Critique Thoroughbred mare

This is Grace. She is a 12 year old 16.2h Thoroughbren mare. Please tell me what you see. What you like and don't like. I am going to Event her.

I don't have great pictures, but I think they are good enough. I don't have many of her in this good weight. She has gained probably 200lb in 5 of 6 months.

Thanks!

She's the most hideous thing I've ever seen.

You must send her to me immediately!

:)

Just kidding! She's really gorgeous. She makes the same pissy face as my mare. Grinds her teeth and basically says "I don't wanna stand still, stupid human!"

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

Very pretty mare! Her coloring is wonderful, I think she'd be a great eventer. :)

Is it just me, or does her back seem to have a very slight roach?

Thanks guys!

Drew - no way! She is all mine!

Rider - I will definitely be posting eventing pics. It will be a while, though, because I have to wait till spring to do any eventing...

She looks to be slightly cow-hocked, but I wouldn't know for sure unless I saw shots from the back. [Don't take my crit to heavily, I'm no professional ;)] Other than that suspicion you have a gorgeous mare! I am not the biggest fan of TBs, but I'm afraid she might have just won me over. ^-^
