DocBar Granddaughter Conformation Critique - Tear her apart - Photos

This is Sugar, 6 year old Quarter Horse mare, and I was wondering what your guys general opinions as well as conformation insights are.

She was given to me for free, so I'm wondering what is wrong with her!! Haha. She rides great.

Down hill, which is kinda normal for more cowie bred horses. Her neck looks good to me. Her back isn't long and fits her pretty well. I can't really see her shoulder with the hair sitting there. I really like her butt.

What do you plan on doing with her?

If you got her for free there’s nothing in the world wrong with her. That’s where the saying “never look a gift horse in the mouth” comes from.

Nothing is physically wrong with her, I just want to know from a competitive/conformation standpoint. I actually trained her as a 2-4 year old, and the owners just ended up giving her to me after the competed off her.

I'm not sure what I plan on using her for. I was hoping you guys could tell me what her build would work with and against.

I like her shoulder
Lots of depth through her girth
Front legs look good, though her pasterns are a tad long
Longish back and quite bumhigh
Steep slope to her croup but nice big hunky hindquarters
Something off about her hindlegs, though from the 2 photos I cannot determine whether she is sickle-hocked or possible camped out to a degree

Also, to anyone who has seen this pictures... HOW IN THE WORLD can I get her tail to grow back out. When we got her, it was literally so matted that it was Rock hard. We had to cut it off and the dogs actually use it as a play toy... I wish I would have taken a picture. But now her tail is so ugly and thin on the bottom and thick on the top but it just won't grow. I may need to make a new thread for this...

She's definitely butt high..Longish back.. other than that I like her. Love that short head with that big jaw..Love her tail set and big hindquarters.. I thought she was a solid paint though?

If you would have let her tail soak in something like the Cowboy Magic Detangler for a while, probably doing it a day or two you could have picked her tail apart. I've done it a few times..You could try different mane/tail/coat supplements for her tail. When it starts to grow out you can keep something on it and bag it while it grows out..With winter coming she won't need it for flies so you may just as well even it out and cut it off..

Solid paint? No. I don't think so. Her mom looked just like her but was a quarter horse registered as a paint and her dad was a quarter horse.

And she's 8, not 6. My other horse is 6. I made them both a thread and switched ages. I did the same thing on their profiles when I made them. Looooooosing. My. Mind.

Front legs: pasterns a bit long, looks like she toes out some, but I really like the length of her cannon bones.
Back legs: I agree something appears slightly off, either she standing under herself or something. Her hocks could be set lower, and her back pasterns seem pretty short and upright compared to her front ones.
Shoulder, not too much to see, looks good to me. I like her neck and the way it ties in. She has a pretty cute head :)
Back length looks good, butt high but that's normal with cow bred horses. Croup is maybe a bit steep.

Overall, I really like her! :)
