    Detailed confo critique please

    I know she us fluffy and the photographs arent great but she will be fluffy until about August and I can get better picture tomorrow.

    Anyways this is Vicky my homebred yearling British Shetland filly. Because we bred her we have very much rose tinted glasses when it comes to her so can everyone please pick her apart every little detail no matter how small or trivial.

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you get pictures of her square, with her head up and not grazing? With these pics, you will not get a detailed critique of her confo.

    OMG I love your Shetland.. but I just love the whole thing.. where you live and how you raise these ponies.. and these photos are impossible to critique.. she needs to be set up and not stretched (I believe show Shetlands are stretched).

    I want to come to Scotland and critique her in person!!!

    She is adorable and looks like a stuffed toy!

    My God. I want to live where you live!

    (What needs to be said has already been said in regards to conformation pictures)

    Disastercupcake I did say I'll get better photos today at some point, these are the best I have at the minute.

    You could move here. Land is cheep, but there is no specialised equine vets nor any place for them to operate on them. Food is expensive because it has to be shipped up and there are no jobs. But it is a fantastic place to live and is a fantastic fantastic place to come up on holiday. And if you do come over you all are more then welcome to come visit the munchkins.

    Okay more photos, please excuse the disgusting thing that is Vicky.
    She has lost the hair on her chest and on her face which is making her neck look funny when really she has a nice neck. I also couldn't get any of her front legs as she hasn't learned to stand square properly yet but we have a show or 2 in a couple of months so she will be learning that.

    And this is what happens when you as her to stand square, or you try to catch her or just do anything she doesn't want to do.

    And just for the sake of it her lovely mum

    Firstly I know little about Shetlands, so am judging her as I would a big horse, so if that is wrong disregard.

    Right now she looks downhill, but obviously she is a growing girl. Also it is really hard to tell what is fuzz and what is her, and the shed spot in the middle of her back almost makes her look sway backed, but assume that is just the way she has shed out.

    The other thing that stands out is that she appears really straight through the hind leg without much angulation through the hock. Hip and croup appears a touch short with light gaskin.

    Unfortunately due to all the fuzz I can't really tell where her shoulder is, true shape of her neck, pastern angle... Well much anything else honestly... Lol. I would love to see pictures after she is shed out. She is super cute with an extra dose of huggable-ness!

    I find it hilarious that she rolls when she doesn't want to do something!

    The back is just her hair, as for the back legs I agree however I think it isn't quite as bad as it looks, her fluff on her legs makes it looks worse, I'm hoping that will also improve with age as I think she is going to moult out quite gangly looking.
    I am so impatient for all this winter hair to come off already but I know it will be a good while yet. It's the only down side to the bred.
