Draft-cross conformation...just because

Everyone needs a self-indulgent threat once in a while... :)

19-year old Shire-TBX. I've had her for 14 years so I know her strengths and weaknesses. Just curious to see what random strangers (and indeed, experts) on the web would say.

Hopefully these photos are okay enough.

Is she a cross? She seems a bit light and doesn't have a lot of feathering.

Yes, that's why my OP describes her as a Shire-TB cross and the title says draft cross.

I think she's pretty :) I'd trim the small tuffs of feathering just to give her a neater appearance :) she seems like a solid girl though! I think a little more muscling in the rump would balance her out.

Clippers aren't allowed anywhere near her

The top pic is her pretty well muscled up, as she's super fit at the moment and it's a recent picture (and I swear, she's normally not that camped under -- I think she was concerned about fitting cross-ways in the barn aisle). I think it's just the way she's built. She's a powerful ride, though, just maybe not quite FEI potential. :P

I love her! At her age I think she looks great and I really like the balance between saddle horse and draft - looks like she got the best of both!!

I think she is beautiful. I love my draft/paint cross....she is just not as tall as your mare, but very solid. I love you saddle...it looks so comfortable.

She looks like she stands under herself in the pictures, long back, short neck, straight hip, oh and she is amazingly gorgeous!

I find it difficult to get photographs of her that look like her. She doesn't have a short neck at all -- the camera distorts it slightly in some weird way. Maybe the angle I tend to stand at?
