Butt high, thin neck but I like how it connects to her head and shoulder, nice muscled hindquarters, good front legs.
Overall I really like the look of her, strong and able, but still elegant. :)
Oh and her coloring is gorgeous Posted via Mobile Device
Thank you! She has a fair bit of thoroughbred in her, I think that's why she's much more refined than some of our stockier paints! And her neck should get better with conditioning, she hasn't been worked with much this year Posted via Mobile Device
I don't see butt-high; I see long, weak back/loin. Cute head and neck Shoulder is a bit upright for a stock horse so she probably has a more upward, round movement in the front. Her hip is nice. Can't tell about her legs much but they seem a bit off - would need better pictures to know for sure.
She is cute overall. I would work her over ground poles, cavaletties, and/or on the trail to get her back built up, as well as lots and lots of backing up purposefully.
A horse in this position with the cameraman standing slightly to the rear and pointing the lens at the hip ALWAYS shows a lovely photo. In this photo, because of the camera angle and the alert attitude of the horse, she looks wonderful. I suspect that a proper set up would show a horse with a long back, weakish coupling and not nearly as nice a shoulder as you see here.
There is a saying among photographers.. you can add 10 pounds or take 15 pounds off any human subject by carefully positioning of the subject to the film plane. Same with horses.
