My American quarter horse mare conformation critique?

So this is my pride and joy ivy:)
She is a pure bred registered american quarter horse!
We have been together for almost 3 years now and do nothing but simple flat work, small shows, and trail rides! But what more could I ask for?? :)

Her flaws are honestly no deep concern of mine, as to say, because to me my horse is my horse!
I have just simply seen lots of recent posts on conformation critiques and such, so I decided to see what you all lovelies think of her:)

OH and for those of you who may want to say something of how short her tail is, WEEELLL one of her anal pasture mates decided to take a midnight chew on ivys tail >:( she of course did not conquer the feat of taking it all off, but it was very noticeable and unattractive! So we had to cut it to the shortest chewed length to be even *sighs*

SO YEA :) please be mature on what you chose to say of her :)

Overall, a nice looking horse. Nice back, croup, hearthgirth. Her neck ties in rather high at the shoulder, but it's a decent neck, top part of her neck is almost twice as long as the underside, that is good thing. Her shoulder is a bit on the straight side, but not too bad. Legs look fine to me, I can't spot anything amiss. She looks well taken care of. Thank you for posting.

Nice horse. Nice topline through the coupling. Decent hind leg angles but a bit straight through the stifle and hock (not bad). Shoulder lays back fairly correctly and the point of shoulder looks to be correct as well with adequate angle from point of shoulder to elbow. Adequate bone. Decent front leg.. maybe a tiny bit tied in at the knee.

Good horse.

Nice horse! I don't know conformation very well, but I will comment on the tail... Had a WelshX pony do that exact same thing to my QH/Arabian gelding one year. I was so mad! He chewed it all off a little higher than your horse's tail is. Darn ponies!

I don't know about conformation too much but I like her. She's pretty! :)

Thanks everyone!
Yea she's a piggy, and gets lots of food so she's pretty well fed haha:)
Thanks for all of the compliments as well *blushes* me and her both HATE winter, but in the summer when her fur sheds you can see her fill out alot more!

Gallopingguitarist - aw im sorry! And yes haha some ponies are quite silly! The horse that did it to mine I think was trying to get revenge, because ivy had taken over as lead mare in their pasture recently hahaah!

Can you turn the pics the other way?? Hard to see things with my head sideways...LOL. She looks different in the top pic, and in the next two sideways pics....which is why it's important to turn them the right way. I like what I see in the top pic, but I see different things in the other two sideways pics.

conformation, horse breeds
