How does she look?

My mare Angel (She is my baby and will probably have something to do with a lot of my posts), is seven years old and I want to know what you all think of her conformation and what she would be good to use for. Everyone I have look at her love her for her color but I had one person out who said she was the ugliest horse they ever saw because of her conformation. So here are some pictures please don't be to mean cause I raised this horse but let me know the truth in a nice way.

I am sorry but that person is a bit of a moron. This horse has rather good conformation actually ;)
Her shoulder angle appears to be rather upright in the one good confo photo, but upon further observation it could just be the coloring in her coat, coupled with the lighting that makes it appear that way. She actually has a very nice shoulder & neck set.
She also has sufficient depth through the girth, though she's a bit chubby so it's hard to tell lol
Front legs look good
Back is a good length
Steeper slope to the croup but lovely hindquarters otherwise
Her back legs even look as though they would be correct, were she standing perfectly square.
All in all, a very nicely built horse in my opinion.
If she is ugly to some, it is only because of her color (though i think it's beautiful) and her head is a little short and thick

I agree with the color throwing things off. I was going to say something about her shoulder and back length until I got to the next picture and they went away. I like her! How tall is she btw?

Thanks Ruffian, I am glad she is not bad in conformation, and yes she is chubby cause I was away and no one worked with her but I am working on getting her back in shape.

Thanks nvr2many and she is about 15 hands high.

Thanks Kilokitty I too am a fan of roman noses!

I think that she is lovely! The only thing I noticed was her "stubby" neck, but I quite like her confo and her color! If I was in the market for another horse and she was for sale, I'd take a look for sure! :)

her neck and head leave a bit to be desired but who cares. Beauty is only skin deep. LOL
