    Wow I really like her...she looks like my boy to the left-same coloring down to the star and similar face.

    Looking forward to more pics of her.

    So, I just went out to snap some pics of her and now I have no idea how to post them. In the 1st post I did an attachment, but to comment I need a url, which I don't subscribe to photobucket or the others....any ideas?

    Thanks everyone!!

    If you click on "Go Advanced" next to "Post Quick Reply" you should get the full menu of options and be able to post pics. That's what I do since I refuse to use photobucket or flickr.

    What an amazing horse that someone just left! Shame on them!

    Ok, here's a few more, but I don't really know if these pictures will help with a critique. (UGH, that 2nd photo is so bad!!)
    What makes a good conformation photo?
    I certainly don't mind taking more!
    And, please excuse that I hadn't brushed her out~ we just got back from a 4.5 hr ride just prior to this.

    Thanks SO much! I'd love to hear about her frame!

    That third picture of her is just stunning!
    How tall is she?
    You were fortunate to find her (:

    When I first found her, I taped her out at 14.2, but after she lost massive amounts and a layer of fat on her back, she now tapes out at 14.1. Lol.

    Can anyone critique her, please?
    Or let me know if I need better pics?

    I think overall as a trail horse she is pretty solid. Looks a little downhill, but not bad. I am thinking it is just how she is standing, but in the 2nd photo especially she seems very post legged behind and like she stands under herself too much in front. I see the post leg behind in both pics, but the standing under only in the second, which makes me think she was just standing awkwardly.
    I like her front half a lot. You could argue that she is slightly short and upright in the pasterns, but not bad. Her neck sets into her shoulder very nicely.

    Overall: A little weak behind, nice front. Looks nice and sturdy for trail and pleasure, but I certainly would not breed her to pass that haunch on!

    Thank you Karliejaye~ I really appreciate it you taking the time to evaluate her.
    I aim to learn more about conformation, and these threads are very educational.
