Pony Appy Mare Confo IMAGE HEAVY

SHES HOME! Just got back a couple hours ago with this little sweetheart! So excited to start working with her!! Anyway heres some info on her; she's 8yrs, green broke [I realize she's gotten started a bit late but I do care I got her because of this!], about 14.2ish hh, virtually untouched/desensitized to anything/spooky. This little cutie is going to be my new project and I think with work she'll be perfect! :)
Anyway heres the conformation pics [I realize the halter is going in her eye in a few of the pictures, she wouldn't stand still long enough for me to fix it and have my sister take the picture! But after the picture was taken I'd readjust it]:

In a couple she looks a bit down hill, but in another couple she looks just fine! So...not sure if it's the ground ;) I think she's a cutie! Like you, I like projects!

They said POA pony, but yeah I think cross. What does "interesting conformation" mean exactly? LOL

I think she might be slightly, but I think it's mostly the ground.

From what I can see form those pictures is that she has a thick neck and something about it seems wonky- probably just the pictures. She looks like she has a long back with a weaker loin. And a straight shoulder? Just my .02 cents- I may be way off.

She does have a HUGE neck, I didn't think her shoulder was that straight but here's pictures of her in the summer I got from her old owner. Potential Buy Critique Wanted My camera isn't the best and with her fuzzy winter coat my camera was kinda like "Take good conformation pictures? Huh! You're funny."

Okay here are my two cents, not that they are worth a hill of beans. Lol

First off she has a huge thick neck and her face sort of has a mulish look to it. I think she is adorable though. Second, her legs look so tiny! Like she has these itty bitty legs holding up that huge body! The one photo seems like her (as you're looking at her) left foot turns slightly.

I don't really know anything about any of this so, it is just what I see. Also, I feel sorry for appy's as their manes and tales are so scraggly. My friends appy Vodka had the worst mane and tail.

I love her coloring though. She is a beauty.

"Interesting" means odd in this case. She is very unbalanced - her front and rear almost appear to come from two different horses, which is why I asked if she was a cross. To put it otherwise, her front looks Shetland and her rear looks Appy.

That is not to say it is bad conformation - just different. Perhaps this is normal in POA's - not being a POA person, I don't know...
