    Paint/ Quarter Horse Mare

    This is my husbands Paint/QH mare. She's 5 years old and 15 to 15.1hh. Any thoughts?

    Quite a hefty gal but nice
    Shoulder is big but looks ok, though it's difficult to really say at that angle.
    Can't say much on the neck without her standing square
    Nothing severe is standing out in regards to her front legs
    Very deep through the chest
    Back is long
    Appears to be bumhigh
    Very prominant point of croup (top of the hindquarters) sloping sharply to her croup
    Hocks are set too low and she is sicklehocked in the backs
    Overall, however, she looks like she would still make a good solid trail horse. Lovely coloring

    It's really hard to critique the pictures you posted. The horse is not standing square, and the camera angle is not straight on. I'd also like to see a picture from behind the horse, and in front of the horse.

    Can't tell how long her neck is when her head is turned. Her back is long and the angle of the pictures (head turned) makes it look super long. I'd like to see more rounding and more muscling on the top of the hindquarters. Her shoulders look heavy in comparison to her hind end.

    Front legs look okay. I like her short cannon bones. Hocks are cow-hocked and I"d like to see the gaskin more well-muscled. I like how low her hocks are. (in contrast to lilruffian)

    Overall, not bad. I like her head.

    Ok I'll try to get some of her standing square

    I didn't see her and think she had low hocks, my first impression is that they were kinda high. Maybe her leg markings threw me off, lol.

    She's super cute and very stocky. I'll give a better critique whenever you post the new pictures :)

    She is high in the croup. I do not like her legs or her hind quarters, the hind quarters look weak. They just don't look like they belong on that horse.

    Her hind quarters do look a little weak but I can tell you they most definitely are not and she has lost some weight over the winter

    It looks more of how she is put together vs a weight thing. They just don't look "right" to me in any of the pictures. How prominent her croup is could also be making her hind quarters look off.
