My New 3yo Filly. Please critique :)

I am very sorry that I do not have better photos! But this is my new filly, she has just retired from racing sound and blemish free. Will have a few months in the paddock before going into any form of work.

Hoping to do a few breed shows in the mean time.. hoping she does ok. It's hard to look past the bling :p

Flashy looking mare!

Is she a TB or a QH? I like her hind end - it looks powerful and has nice angles. She does appear to have a mild capped hock and her hocks are a touch high. Shoulder is quite upright, and the thing I would change about her if I could. Back a bit long, but appears strong. Pasterns are correct in slope and length. Overall she is a nice looking mare.

It might be just the photo, but something about the left hind pastern looks odd to my eye in the first photo.

Thankyou! Sorry I am not signed in, my phone is very awkward to use on here.
She is actually a standardbred pacer.

I knew about her shoulder but had never noticed the capped hock! What does that affect?

From memory she had her hind leg twisted a little after stepping, possibly what makes her fetlock look odd?

I hadn't known about capped hocks until I came to the forum, but learned that it is cosmetic. Usually its caused by bumping the hock- such as during shipping.

They are not! Who the heck thinks that! Makes me so mad whenever I hear that..because it is so blatantly wrong. They are beautiful animals with the heart of gold! My first horse was a ex-racehorse standardbred. And I trusted my life with him. He was the most gentle calm horse I have ever seen. And he was GORGEOUS. Unfortunately he had major hip problems where his back end would collapse almost while riding. We couldnt afford another horse, and couldnt afford lessons on another horse while still paying for board, so we sold him to some lady who would have him as a pasture pet and company for her other horse. I was heart broken. I still tear up whenever I think of him.

That is so sad, but at least he was able to live out his days happily out in a paddock.

Thanks Quinn, did a bit of googling andit appears they are a blemish that usually goes down after time?

I'm glad to report, after looking at her legs today, the capping is no longer there :) That pic is a few months old, so it must have gone down over the time since then. I was going to grab better pics of her today but ran out of time (I work for the stable she retired from). She'll probably be going out in my paddock tomorrow so will get better ones then.

I love her, nice looking horse. The only things that I notice is for some reason her rear pasterns look funny to me almost over extended? I think its just the way the closer foot looks. Other than that I think she's pretty well put together.
