Lots of Pics 6 y/o Buckskin 3/4 Arabian 1/4 Quarter Horse Mare

Hey, I finally got pictures of Tinkerbell put up. More of her story is on this thread along with some older videos (about 9 months ago) 2006 3/4 Arabian Buckskin Mare for Possible Lease
Warning: I write a lot, skip down to pics if you want! The first pics are the better one (I think) for confo critique, then I have some other ones too, cause my momma taught me to share.
They are far from professional and probably not exactly what you want, but I would like as honest an assessment as you'd like to make. What is good, what is bad, what she could have potential to do...She's mine and that's the way it's gonna stay no matter what. Personally I think she could use some more muscles, I think she may have evened out her butt highness a bit but then again the ground isn't perfectly level. She is very dirty in these pics and almost rubbed her butt raw. I gave her a bath right after and it has since been reported that she has almost completely stopped rubbing and her sores are healing. She is pre-trim in these photos. She was trimmed Immediately after she dried from her bath. She gets the natural hoof care sort of trims.
She is 13.2hh and approx 600 lbs. She is quite narrow and is using the black gullet with the Wintec easy change saddle. The saddle still wiggles like crazy, we bought a sticky pad to put between her and the saddle pad and that has helped tremendously. She was happy to carry my butt (Approx 130lbs) for about 45 minutes on my FIRST EVER ride on her! Her trainer is taller and heavier but she has never come up sore in her back or legs. She is getting 3, 1 hour sessions a week. That's all for now. Ask any questions you want, I have nothing to hide! Oh, and she nearly always looks angry in pictures. But she's really quite sweet.

She does appear to be standing strangely in this photo but it's the only one like this I have. Sigh, DH please take multiple photos so I can choose the best instead of being stuck with what I get, thank you.

Now for some that are less of the confo pics but could still be useful...I suppose

My pretty girl!

She nearly always has a back foot cocked! It's kinda annoying trying to get her to square up!

Pretty face, wish she'd put her ears forward!

Bath time!

Ears up, standing square...too bad I'm in the way and she's all wet.

She's doing the angry QH...lol, she was mad about having to stand tied to dry off.

She LOVES scratches...DH really does like her too, I promise.

Both mad.

she is a cute little horse. needs some muscle tone and a few more groceries.
she may be a little toed out in front, its hard to tell with these photos , and she is standing wonky on the edge of a rubber mat. she should make a nice riding horse. to get a good view of her hind legs,you also need the top of her butt. no way to 'drop a line ' down the leg. ;) again. shes a cute thing, and she may get taller with age.

Thank you! She certainly is standing wonky unfortunately. Hmm, I guess I forgot to make sure to get the top of her butt.
I don't mind if she stays short...closer to the ground and all that. She's 6 so I'm not sure she has a whole bunch of height growth left in her. I guess if she gets taller that's ok too.

I like her a lot - kind eyes - but I think it is hard to give a good confo critique until she puts on more weight.

In my opinion, I like the shape of her neck, however, it looks a little long but ties into her body fairly well. Her back is a bitt iffy to me, can't exactly put my finger on it but maybe with some lunging/side-reins or any other activity which would encourage top-line growth will help change that

Her withers are not very defined.
Her head is quite large for her size.
But she may be one of those special horses that could effortlessly jump 2'6"!

What do you plan on doing with her? I don't think eventing or high speed events are in her future nor would I like to see her being used as a broodmare but I think she will make a stellar pleasure horse :)

Smguidotti, I'm quite sure she's a bit strange. I believe it's at least partically due to the medication her mom was given while she was pregnant that she was not supposed to get while in foal.
Now that you mention it, she does have a pretty big head! And her withers are sure making it difficult to get a saddle to stay in place for the trainer. She definitely needs to build some more muscle, I completely agree with that.
She loves to move and will run like a mad woman for as long as you'll let her in any direction you want. I'm not really into showing or gaming or anything so I'll really mostly use her on trails and maybe a bit of dressage if she can figure out her feet any time soon :) If I get to bring her north I would also like to see about teaching her to pack for hiking/camping/hunting.
