Please Critique Smoochie

As the title says, please critique smoochie :)

Confo, what she'd be good for, just a general critique
I don't know much about conformation so I am trying to learn as I go. Also I know these aren't the greatest pics but they are what I have for now.

Smoochie is a 3yr old 16.3hh Thoroughbred.

Nice horse. Very little not to like. Looks like a good all-rounder to me.
Wallaby and csimkunas6 like this.

I have to chuckle at the name Smoochie, but honestly she is one of the nicest Thoroughbreds I can remember seeing, and I am not a Thoroughbred fan. She appears to have a bit higher than normal percentage of smooth muscle composition than most Thoroughbreds, which together with her nice deep chest would enhance her endurance and make her a good cross country prospect as long as her legs and feet are sound...

Very good looking thoroughbred, as Bubba and Faceman said. Hard to tell if she's pigeontoed or cowhocked, since she isn't squared, but has a very nice, clean top-line and good shoulder and hip angles.

I'm curiouse as to why her bell boots are on upside down in the first picture, and why she wears them when turned out? If she overreaches, a good farrier should be able to help you in that department...

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Thanks for the responses guys! I personally think she is quite lovely :)

Faceman, I think the name is too cute. Her registered name is "Callme Smoochy" so she ended up being called just that lol

Endiku, you are right she is slightly cowhocked. As for her bellboots being upside down, I had just finished putting hoof conditioner on and hadn't flipped them back down yet. She does overreach which is why they stay on. I just recently changed farriers and he is due to come out in a week so i'm hoping he will be able to help with it.

Very well put together horse. I can not find a thing tht I don't enjoy looking at. For 3 years old she is muscled, and toned, and doesnt look ribby and lanky. I think she is awesome!

Thanks poopscooper! She was skin and bones, full of worms, and had the worst coat ever when I got her. She has really gained weight and muscled up beautifully in just 6 short months!

Nice mare! Do you have before pics? I'm curious to see her transformation, she looks great.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
