Gracie, 4 year old QH!

Haven't been on here in ages and ages. My little Gracie is growing up before my eyes! She'll be 4 in August. She's in a bit of a butt-high stage right now, but any input on her structure would be great. And if you have any ideas what she's best built for, I'd love to hear 'em.

Lovely mare. She looks foundation bred, no? I think she could do any thing you asked her to. No doubt better in things like reining or ranch work , but she's well built overall. She's pretty butt high now, but might level out more .

Fairly good looking mare overall.
Nice shoulder, though neck needs muscle.
Front legs dont look too bad either.
She is bum high. Not sure how much more she will level out at her age, her growth is going to slow down quite a bit.
Nice hindquarters and she appears to put the muscle on nicely there ;)
Hind legs look good. Possibly the tiniest bit on the posty side.

I am pretty confident she will even out, her parents and three full siblings grew until 5ish and evened out a lot. It comes in phases; up goes the butt and then the withers follow, lol.

I have her on another board for critique too and have been told about a few flaws, but none of them seem that bad or like they will hinder her too much. I'm so grateful for my luck with my free "whoops" baby!
