    Ya that hip is holy steep! My horse looks like that when I do bum raise exercises! Has she been looked at by a chiropractor at all? Does she seem stiff in her hips. She just looks so tight all along there.
    I also see a bit of a steep shoulder and she is either over at the knee or tied in at the knee hard to tell with her stockings and the snow behind them

    No she hasn't she moves wonderfully and doesn't ever seem stiff and she's 5 but she's really smooth under saddle she's even a pretty good jumper although she comes out of roping horses

    Pretty color and nice markings. She looks a little thin in the newer photos...I don't like to see ribs under a winter coat.

    From a structure standpoint she has a nice face, neck appears ok on length (though photos are still at an angle and might be distorting that), and her neck appears to tie into her withers well, but abit low into her chest. Shoulder is not bad, but a touch more upright than ideal. Withers are nicely shaped. Back is long and the coupling is long and weak. As a result her LS joint is placed far back too. Her croup is quite steep and she is shallow through the hip. She is moderately sickle hocked and appears to have an unusual bulge above her stifle, more noticeable on the right side, but visible on both sides. This horse definitely looks uncomfortable in the hind end to me too. Front legs appear fairly correct, though she could be flatter kneed. Hooves look to need trimming. Pasterns are correct in length and slope. Good bone.
    Elana, GotaDunQH and Larissa like this.

    Her feet were done Feb 6...and I don't know what is up with her front legs but she got her front left caught in a round pen and ripped it open when she was 2

    She is thin in these recent photos. Does she have hay available and always have fresh, clean, unfrozen water?

    She is steep crouped and sickle hocked. Not the end of the world.. but she may develop spavins and or curbs over time. She has plenty of bone and a steep shoulder. Back is a bit long and weak through the coupling.

    Not a bad horse. I don't have any complaints with her front legs (nothing glaring). She looks like a good trail horse and a horse to be ridden and enjoyed. Will she set the world on fire in the show ring? No. Will she be a great jumper or dressage horse? No.

    Will she be a lot of fun and be a good ride on the trails and so forth? Most probably and there is nothing wrong with that.

    She is mostly just going to be a trail horse but my husband wants to do a little showing but just on the ground and yes she always has hay and water this winter has just been extra harsh on all horses in this area

    Just for fun I go some new conformation pictures of Buttercup and since she gets out all the time she has gained a massive amount of weight and looks like a little piggy! :)
