    OTTB Mare Crit?

    Soo..I can see most of everything myself, but I'm curious as to if I missed anything, lol.

    Just a pic I have from today while she was tied (almost perfectly level where she is and dips down in front of her). I know she isn't standing completely square, but the hind closest is how she stands squared up.

    Hock are way high off the ground and the result is an over all posty hind leg. He hoof angle does not match her pastern angle and she seems to have dropped pasterns behind.
    A bit over at the knee and semms maybe a bit tied in at the knee. Knife withers and a low set ot her neck on her top line and a low tie in of the nect at the bottom. Steep shoulder that may be better if she is set up better.

    She looks like she needs weight and muscling.. even with the winter woolies.

    Well, she could use a good 100-200lbs. I think her withers will look a little better once she gains that and muscling.

    Pretty much everything Elana said, and it might just be me but she seems to be extremely short backed. Will look a lot better with muscling. This picture was probably taken before you groomed, but make sure to get all the mud off her legs! This time of the year is awful for scratches, and it can be quite hard to get rid of once your horse gets it.

    Hmm, camped under all round. I'd get a good vet chiro or such to come check her over/treat her. I'd suspect sacro region could do with some help. Camped under & over at the knees in front could be a hoof issue - common in heel pain, rotation, etc. Can't comment on hooves or weight or such with that blurry pic.
