    Please Critique this Mare!!

    I know the picture isn't the best for confo critique, but it is cold and she is now all muddy and yuck, so it'll have to do.

    The first is June, a 4 yo QH/Paint cross. She is mostly a trail partner, but I am wanting to go to a couple local open shows to get the hang of the whole showing thing... so, I am wondering what you all think about her... will she be competitive in local open shows? Not that its about winning, but its nice to have your hard work acknowledged!

    Second is a long yearling appaloosa filly. She will be a two year old in late spring. She is my new project and I wasn't planning on showing her, but I may want to use her as a broodmare later in life, she has an AMAZING pedigree and I would like to show her so that she has the show experience to back up my decision to breed (if I ever do... its not necessarily planned, but a possibility). These pictures are from this spring so they are yearling pictures. She has matured more since then, but generally, she is the same.

    Thanks Everyone!!

    The paint QH horse cross looks good. Looks like a nice solid built horse looks like she might have a long back and be croup high but that all I can see, beautiful markings too

    I am not a fan of appys but I will try and critique him pretending he is a different breed;p , I see a knife neck, steep shoulder, short croup and possibly toed out but it is possible that is just the way he is standing.

    If you could get better pictures the appy might not looks so bad, I don't think that picture does her any justice.

    I love that paint though. Good luck with them both!!

    First mare is definitely built downhill, with a steep shoulder angle & could use some muscle but that's all I can tell from that pic alone.
    The Appy is quite upright in the shoulder, which makes her neck appear high set. She could also do with some muscle, but she's young yet. Again, can't tell much else.

    The paint mare is not as downhill as she looks in that picture, she is actually on un-level ground. I know the pictures are not good for conformation, I just wanted a general idea. I did try to take better pictures yesterday of them both, but without a helper I couldn't get them to stay square :/ So maybe if I can ever get better pictures (I am horrible at taking confo shots) I'll try to repost.

    Thanks everyone!!
