Pony Mare Conformation Critique

Just started working Annie again after the winter off, and was wondering how she looked so far along with what people thought of her conformation. She is a bit ribby right now, but is gaining up well and will be out on grass in a week or two.

This was her before the winter break with light lunging, and mostly ground work.



This was her about two weeks ago when she first started getting worked.




And this was her today after she got all fancied up to see how she'd stand for braiding.






She knows she's pretty.





And because she was being a fatty butt most of the time I was trying to take pictures.. trying to eat the grass.

First of all, she's insanely cute. Those eyes!!!

But, as for conformation . . . Well, I see a steep shoulder, a long back, nice hind legs with nice hocks, though a tiny bit posty, front legs are on the edge of being over straight (not 100% sure because I can't see well with the wraps on), neck shows over-development of the neck muscle on the underside (does she brace against the bit?)

How tall is she?

Very cute pony!! Once you get some more groceries in her she will be a standout!

Slightly bony hindquarters and very pronounced withers, (I like pronounced withers, but you may not) good length cannons also.
Very pretty

Thanks, I hate her eyes though! They just look so mean... Maybe not in the pictures posted but in person its horrible.

Is it me or does she also have a weird neck tie in, or is that just her steep shoulder making it seem like that? I'm still learning about conformation...

Not usually, but sometimes all she wants to do is run and will be a little harder in the mouth then usual and will fall on the forehand. We've been working a lot on rhythm, balance, straightness, and relaxation.

She is 14.1hh.

Thanks, I don't know what happened to her this winter but it was just really tough for her I guess. She had a blanket on, got double the amount of hay she usually got, high fat grain, and wasn't being worked at all. This spring I power packed (strong dewormer) her and that is seeming to help along with the little grass she has right now, but she was on a regular deworming schedule before so I don't know what was going on.

Her hind end usually isn't so boney when she is at a better weight, but her withers are about what they are normally besides dishing in so much. Thanks, I'm starting to actually like her especially when she is all braided. When I first got her she was a rotten little mare. Lol. Still rotten but no so bad.

Not a conformation critique, and I might be a little bit biased because she looks a lot like my appy x pony (14.2) that I grew up riding- so I think she is super cute! My mare was a bit of a spooky thing, but I loved her nevertheless.

I do see a slight ewe or poorly muscled neck (upside down muscling).
