QH conformation?

Hi everyone,

Here's my girl, could I have a conformation on her? I hope these pictures are good for this. It was so cold we really rushed taking them, I can get more if need be :)

She's six.

Some more info:
Full quarter horse. As far as I know she was only used for trail riding and a kids western lesson program before I got her. Now she's mainly a trail horse. I'm not sure what other info might be useful for you, sorry.

I don't see anything glaringly wrong with her. She is *very* fuzzy lol :)

Glad to hear :)
Thanks for your time! She is very very fuzzy, it's really cute. I'll take some more pictures when her winter coat is gone and maybe people can take another look at her, I'm sure it would make for better conformation pics.

I'm not a conformation expert, so if anyone else wants to correct me feel free.
I personally like her; she has good bone and a nice hind end. Her back length is good. She seems to have a nice pastern length and pretty clean legs. Gorgeous color!
Her faults seem to be that she toes in in the back (hard to see) I'd like her hocks to be a bit lower set. Her neck is pretty think and she doesn't have a very feminine head.

Overall, she's a very nice using type horse! I'd own her :)

That makes me all kind of happy, thank you both so much for your time. I'll be doing some research about the hocks :) I was trying to bulk up her neck this past summer and will continue in the spring.

I agree with DunnBoy. I actually really really like this mare. She looks like she would make a great all arounder.

She looks very compact and nicely balanced. Good bone, good angles. Kind of thick throatlatch. Not elegant, but very sturdy and get the job done type.

I know that by normal standards this mare would have a very 'coarse' head, but is anyone else absolutely in love with her face? I just want to give her a big hug, pack her up, and take her home with me!
