did not expect that i would like this mare for what you want before looking at her pictures as draft/qh is not an ideal cross...but I do. Butt high- who cares. She's 2 and a draft cross, won't mature for four years or more. longish back is more of a concern as you can see she's got a potential sway issue. with proper work this can be managed. I love her hocks. can't say she's camped out because she's not square in any photo. her angles are great. pasterns are a touch long which could be a soundness problem - maybe- who knows. that deep hip is amazing...rarely do draft crosses have a hip like that, she got the Qh in that department, thank the lord. she is well balanced, also unusual for a draft cross, they are usually HUGE in teh shoulder and weak in the hip. not this mare. she's very even. I like her shoulder angle- skinny neck? don't think so. love her neck. it will only get stronger as she grows, it might actually get too large and cresty for the vogue, but I like it. I like the tie in, high enough to let her reach through the front. throatlatch is a bit thick but not awful. my biggest concerns with this mare are the front pasterns and longish back. overall as i already said, i like her alot!
