    Can you get better photos? The second one she is set up ok, but the dark shadows make it hard to see her neck and stifle, and blown out highlights make it difficult to assess her shoulder.

    From what I can see she has a good length back with strong loin, nice croup angle, but a fairly small hip. She looks to be slightly back at the knee and also tied in below the knee, and is somewhat finer boned than I prefer. Pasterns appear correct in slope. Hind legs appear fairly correct, though she may be slightly sickle hocked. Hooves need trimmed.

    Better photos will tell more.

    I did a little PS on the image.. it (as usual) cannot address the blown highlights but it did bring up the dark areas.

    This photo does nothing to help what I suspect is a pretty good horse. Her couping is strong and her back is the correct length. I believe her neck ties in well to her shoulder and, with a photo that shows it, I am willing to bet she has a pretty good shoulder from her Thoroughbred lineage.

    In this image she looks a bit sickle hocked, but if you look at her left hind foot it is not flat on the round.. but is toe down and heel high which I think makes her LOOK sickle hocked.

    Please post better photos of this horse. My initial response is this is a darn good horse.. and the photo we can judge her from (the second one that I lightened) does her no favors at all.
