new and updated pictures.. please critique.

I just got back from germany after 4 years.. man it was great to see my girl. I missed her so much! I took some pictures, tried to take good confo shots, but I was alone and had a hard time keeping her still and snapping the pictures. So hopefully you can get something off these. NOTE: she is NOT butt high.. just the driveway and the way I held the camera. I know.. I couldnt get her completely squared. Whenever I moved her back legs up, shed move her front legs up. So that's as square as I could get her all on my own.

Shes sickle hocked for sure. She stands under herself a good bit, but could just me the way she is standing from the photos.

Really cute face though!!

She wasnt completely squared up in those pictures. Her front should be one step further. Just was hard to position her by myself. Thank you for your critique :) I appreciate it.

Thats what I figured! Funny how you can get them to stand good when you don't have a camera, but once they see that camera, or when you really want them to stand square is when they wont do it! Lol

Cute mare! She has a nice short back & a good heart girth. She toes out front & back, slightly sickle hocked. Her pasterns match the angle of her hooves. Her neck ties in very high to her shoulder thus making it more difficult for her to collect herself and transfer energy back to her hind end, which looks weak or sore over her loins. Length of neck, topside to underside is perfect, topside is exactly twice the length of the underside, so she can compensate for her neck/shoulder position. Her shoulder angle is adequate. She looks very well cared for.
