OTTB Mare Confirmation Feedback



These pictures aren't the greatest, but I would appreciate the feedback. Her neck seems a little short to me.. but it could just be the angle as well.

I'm not an expert, but here's my attempt:

She's extremely... thoroughbred-y, very pretty. She's a pretty typical tb- downhill, deep girth, short neck, light bone, her pasterns look slightly long to me but her canons look like a nice length. She looks like she may be slightly over at the knee, and she seems to be a little narrow? Her shoulder looks a little steep to me, her back is short, and her bum looks nice and powerful. She's lovely. :)

Little worried about her RIGHT front ankle (top photo) but other than that she is not bad. Her neck may be a bit short and she is wasp waisted like recently Off the Track. Nice shoulder typical of Thoroughbreds. Seems a good sort.

Beautiful girl to start off with!
Shoulder angle is a bit steep but she has a good, deep girth.
Neck is set a little high and needs muscling.
Short back
Hindquarters look good, though again maybe just a little more muscle to match her front end.
Back legs are long but conformed well.
Pasterns maybe a tad long
I like her front legs as well, although the one looks to be slightly over at the knee, that could just be the way she is standing.
