    I am aware she needs her feet done...the farrier is going to do them this week.

    Whew she is fat. LoL.

    She is downhill. Super steep steep croup. Majorly sickle hocked. Upright shoulder.

    Long toes with under run heels.

    She looks like she has good bone in her legs.

    I'm guessing she's very front heavy when riding.

    She won't win a halter contest. But I bet she loves the trails and if she's got a good mind then there's no complaints.

    She does and other than the OTTB of my friends she's the fastest horse of the three though my old girl can keep up and win over long distances. And mind-wise she's a real sweetheart though she has a habit of not wanting to turn when asked....working on it and she was sore in her back till we got a massage therapist out to look at her.

    The very best thing about her is her bone mass. IMHO, that's something that's sorely missing in stock horses these days.

    As for the rest of her body, it's like everyone else has said, long back, thick neck that ties in low, very heavy shoulder, upright shoulder.

    She's very wide through her chest with a wide base under her (her legs have a big space between them where they come out of her shoulders), which I like in a horse. Her front legs appear to be straight and clean with good angles which is good since she's so front-heavy.

    Her hind end is rather unfortunate though with the exceptionally steep croup, straight stifle, and prominent sickle hocks...but so long as she enjoys her job and ya'll enjoy riding her, then who cares .
