Quick conformation critique?

I've had her critiqued before, but those weren't recent pictures.

Now, I know that she's a bit underweight.. she came to me that way and she's getting better. She's improving daily: weight-wise, training-wise.. health-wise. I just would like a critique on her conformation. She happened to be standing perfectly square on the cross ties so I figured I'd take the opportunity to grab a few pictures on my phone. I don't have a full body shot, as I couldn't get far enough away but I have a couple decent ones.

(and the hives are from an allergy, although we're not too sure what.. but they've been going down since she's on a different feed with anti-histamine mixed in)

Thanks! I also have a new video of her trotting in my member journal if you'd care to critique her movement.

From these there is not a lot to say. She toes out in front and looks to have two huge low splints (I hope they are cold and old splints anyway). I have not seen splints like that on both legs of a horse in a long time but I don't go looking on the track either and this seems to be an OTTB.

I like her smooth topline and she has a nice shoulder.. tho it appears her point of shoulder may be a bit low. She has a nice deep heart girth typical of Thoroughbreds.

Cannot say anything past that.

They're old, as I talked to the vet about them and she said that there was no point in doing anything about them since it's such an old injury. I always cold hose her legs after we go for a ride anyways, until there's no heat in her legs.. although today when I brought her in, there was no heat to be found anywhere which was great.

I'll try to get some full body photos on Tuesday, thanks!

She is cute and has a nice shoulder.
I think she might could use some weight gain to fill out her hips and ribs.

Those splints look like they might be the rear fetlock showing behind the front canons. Hard to see clearly in that photograph.

I'm thinking it is, because now that I think about it.. Indie only has one splint which is on the inside of her left front leg. I try to be really vigilant about her legs, but they're improving quite a bit lately.
