    curious about the critique

    When I moved into my place, I found this cute lil mare had been abandoned here. She was the most obese starving horse ever.
    She had foundered, feets were a mess, and she was HUGE.
    Turns out this lil mare has had some very nice training her short life of about 8 yrs. We ride everywhere together and has become the best horse I've ever had.

    I'm curious though~ do you see any red flags with her conformation? We're only trail riders. No competition or fancy stuff.

    (the last pic is the day I found her...fatty!)

    I know, right? The only thing I know about the previous owner was she was a drinker and always scraping for money.
    This lil mare is solid in the head and in body. Well, mostly~ still working on the feet.

    I apologize that i'm not any help with actual conformation critique but.....
    I like this little mare! Beautiful expression and a kind eye.

    I think you really lucked out with this mare.
    Her previous owner's loss.
    She looks nicely put together, is really good looking with gorgeous coloring, and I love that face.

    You just can't say any more than that she is pretty , judgeing from those photos. Take some time and do proper critique ones. We'll still say she's pretty, but in bigger, more interesting terms!

    Agreed - though I will say the one thing that does seem consistent throughout these photos is that she appears a bit bum high - the degree does shift a bit from one picture to the next, but it is there in all of them (though even that could be the angle of the photos).
    We'd love to see more of her anyway, so why not have a little photo shoot with her and get some really nice confo shots

    Wow! Thanks everyone!

    I will take your advice and get her on a photo soon as it's not pouring and/or snowing.
    Maybe on our ride today.
