    Let's see what you guys notice :)

    5 year old thoroughbred mare
    (I did the best I could with photo's tonight, my grandmother is just the worst at taking them)

    ( just to clarify on the picture above, she's standing her back nearside leg in a gutter- so it's giving her the appearance of an overly large right hip. She is unbalanced though, and the right side is larger than her left, but not to that extreme.)

    So.... pick apart my pony :)

    Wow I would love to have her in my pasture!

    She's a nice girl :)
    Currently leasing her, hoping to snatch her up at a bargain. She has a lot of... quirks. That should bring her price down.

    She is pretty cute. It may just be the way she is standing, but her hind pasterns look a bit off (she doesn't have much hoof though behind and she isn't very balanced behind, which could cause them to look off). Her front feet are also a little out of balance (inner walls longer than outter walls). Finding an excellent farrier with a good understanding of balance will do her a lot of good as well.

    Very pretty face and good bone!

    Overall a very pretty mare. The only thing that stuck out to were her feet. Especially her hinds I would be looking into a new farrier.

    New farrier is a want, but cannot be done until the owner relinquishes her grasp on Honey <;l
    The angles of her hooves are all out of whack too, making her be ridiculously upright in her pasterns and causing strain in the top of her foreleg.

    Well picked up guys :)

    I was going to mention the rear feet, too. The filly is absolutely lovely. Nice gaskins and hind. Front canons could be shorter.

    She is cute! I hope you get to keep her!

    First impressions-

    Pretty good bone for a TB!
    Feet- already discussed above
    Looks like her left front knee might rotate out a bit, but it looks mild and like it might continue down to the pastern without too much twist, nothing too scary (sometimes TB knees are terrifying to look at too closely haha)
    Neck ties in a little bit too low for my taste, and her throat latch is a tad thick, but over all her hip and shoulder angles look good and athletic!

    Overall a good find!

    Best of luck!

    She has a very nice topline. She is tied in at the knee and her rear heels are very low (alreaday mentioned). In both side shots she looks as if she is hurting.. somewhere but it may just be bad photos. If she is hurting it looks almost like she is trying to get her feet under her to take the weight off of some part of her body.. and it just may be those heels. She also has a lot of rotation at the knee down to her fetlock joints and there she points straight ahead. Her knees do rotate out.

    I want to say her shoulder is not very open.. but she has her front feet quite back under her so that may be what is going on there. Her neck could be set a bit higher.

    That being said she is put together over all quite nicely and none of her parts come off looking like the should be on a different horse. Like her color and her shine.

    Would like better photos (you mentioned) and I would take the "seems in pain" part of the critique I gave here with a bit of a grain of salt if these were just two badly timed shots.
