Tear my little monster apart!

This is Easter, an 8 year old AQHA mare. I realize these aren't ideal pictures- in fact they are down right crappy. I posted a confo critique long time ago, but this is more recent and she is in better condition. I was alone and she wouldn't stand still. She is standing on a slight incline on some of these. Thanks in advance! Sorry for possible page stretch!

I won't tear her apart, this is a nice horse. Lovely head & neck. Decent back, & hind end. No glaring faults I can see. I would like to ride this horse.

Green Broke
Quite high in the wither with a rather upright shoulder.
Back legs are sickle hocked and in the photos it appears as though she may be a little buck-kneed in the front.
On the plus side she's got a nice deep girth, pretty hindquarters and a short back. Pretty head and an alright neck as well.

I think she's cute. A little over in the knee and her back is a fuzz long in my opinion, and she could use some muscle tone but I like muscle ;)
Overall, she's a cutie!

She's actually quite nice! I'm not used to such a refined QH because all of ours are built like tanks, but she's got a very feminine look about her without loosing the classic QH look. I like it.

There's something that looks a little off about her knees/cannon, but I'm more inclined to think that it's her cannons that are a bit wonky than her knees. She doesn't really look over at the knee to me.

I see a very well set neck that ties in well at the withers and chest, and a clean throatlatch. Good slope to the shoulders and a nice deep heartgirth. I also think that her back is just a tad bit long, but definitely not to the point where it's worrysome or anything. She's camped under though, making me wonder if her hips or back might be sore. She's standing under herself in almost all of the pictures.

All in all, a very nice little mare. I'd take her any day!

-Straighter Shoulder
-Small Hip
-Bit of a longer back
-Her back s a bit swayed along with a higher set of withers
-Short neck
-Over at the Knee
-Something About her pasterns that I don't like....
-Looks like she probably is camped under in the back but hard to tell since she isn't standing square.

Just a note that I really don't see a swayed back. She has a fairly prominent wither, which gives her a bit more 'dip', but definitely wouldn't call it a sway. I actually like her natural topline.
