    QH Mare Critique





    Pictures owners sent me even after I showed them pictures and described how to take them. Critique away!

    Not a bad little horse. Good top line. Neck set correctly. Shoulder is a bit steep and point f shoulder a bit low.

    He is not large but he looks fairly correct and very compact.

    Those aren't exactly conformation pictures lol, but I'll try.

    Her neck is a little long for my liking, I don't like how egg shaped her butt looks. Maybe if she were standing more squarely it'd look better. She's got a decent sized back and chest. Shoulder looks decent too. I LOVE her face and those nostrils!! Bigger nostrils on a horse means they can get more air into there lungs to run.


    Once muscled up she'll be a fine looking mare. You should post more of her soon once she starts gaining muscle!

    I know, I specially told her how to take the pictures and gave her links to examples.

    I'm hopping to go look at her soon, and hopefully if everything goes as planned she'll be mine the week after Thanksgiving!

    I would never send pictures like that to a potential buyer, just saying...

    Not all of us are "competition" people and know how to take pictures of a horse for sale. Plus she's cheap so I don't expect too much.

    Its not a "competition" thing. Its a making a good impression thing. You wouldn't show a house or car you're selling dirty, would you? No, you want things to look their best. Its just the respectful thing to do

    I honestly didn't even realize how dirty the horse was until you said something! Mine look like that right now so I didn't even think of it.

    Once she muscles up I think she'll be a fine looking girl! Sometimes all horses need to look nice is some food, work and a lot of love.

    Holy Short Back! But I like a short back, although this one may be a smidge too short. I think she has a KILLER neck...love a long neck. She's definitely worth a look, like how she is level across the topline.

    I agree with someone else who mentioned the pictures. I would NEVER send pics like this to a prospective buyer, no matter HOW cheap or expensive the horse was. It does not take anymore than 5 minutes to at least brush the horse and set her up better. I mean come on....put a little effort into it.
