my mare...what do you think?

hey, Everyone :) I have a paint/quarter horse mare 13 years old. I really want eveyone's HONEST opinions. In my opinion she's very stout and and all around "big" mare at exactly 16.0hh :) thanks in advance! http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8228/8...b4da91de_b.jpg

Very pretty coloring and her conformation is not too bad either, although more pictures with her standing square to the camera would help.
From what you can see, she has a decent shoulder
Front legs look good
Back is a fair length, though it is hard to accurately judge this by those pictures
Can't complain much about her hindquarters and she appears to square up well in the back legs.
Overall a rather nice mare ;)

Thank you :) she has what's called a 'greying gene' (i think.) She use to be a black and white tabiano.

Also I was wondering what your opinions are on her withers? Would you say they look high? Would she make a good English horse?? She's currently only been ridden western. Ok and last question what about cutting or reining? Would she have good conformation for those disciplines?

Really need conformation shots to tell about how her withers tie in. She has a nice look to her from these photos but I won't comment on her conformation.
