QH mare critique

Here is my little 15 hand quarter horse mare, she is 7 years old.
She has Dry Doc & Major Bonanza, Go man go, two eyed jack & much more on her pedigree. Would definitely like to have her critiqued.

She starts training in a few weeks to prep for next year showing. Shes just been our extra trail mare, she chases cows just fine but shivers about it.

Besides the critique I'am also looking for ideas too, any thoughts on what she would look to excel in with the western world. Ranch, barrels, cow?

She's pretty much worthless, so just send her my way!! I'll take her off your hands, ok?

actually, she is really nicely built. It would be more accurate if the photos were all squared up good, in good light and on hard ground, but one can see that she' s pretty near perfect. Her hocks are maybe a tiny bit on the straight side, but it could just be that first photo. hip angle is steep, but really , I cannot seee really anything that is a glaring fault. She looks very functional, too.

I bet she can do most anything, just depends on her heart and mind, and yours.

Gorgeous horse! Beautiful! She would make a cute little cow horse :) Ever thought about team penning? - Very fun!

More often than not we chase the neighbor's cows back across the creek to their pastures in the valley, they break out & come across to the big farmers field next to my farm & before they get yelled at, I just saddle her up & push them back home. The cows are the highlander, wooly mammoths with HUGE horns. She is a natural with cows. From day one, she had no previous cow experience or ever saw one & well, my gelding is a chicken, she is all cow bred so this baby girl was out pushing cows back home & shown great cow sense, never let up. My gelding would have hid under a rock.
I've buried this mare in a chest high clay bank & she kept a level head & just followed my lead, cows jumped the path & we never seen it coming, slid down a bank into deep water & climbed up a dangerous mountain side. Even raced a calf down stream back up to the herd, she just pushed & rolled him back to shore.

She has been to a few local open penning & sorting competitions after that & has done good in the ring, she will advance over training this year for the 2013 show season.

I love this mare, she is just great minded & so loyal.

In the first photo, she looks a little camped out behind, but I think it might have just been the way she was standing. In the second photo, she looks a little goose-rumped but it's hard to tell because she was resting a leg... Overall she is GORGEOUS!!! You've got a little gem there :)

Im with Tiny, she is an ugly awful critter! I guess you could just burden me with her ;). I thank other than a steep rump she is very nice looking, very cowy! I think she has a good career ahead of her. What are her lines?
