    Thought's On My AQHA Mare

    Paco is 13, and i'm wondering if I should keep running her or not. I don't know if you can tell in these pictures, she still has...'swelling'? In her right front pastern. Old Old injury. Never really bothers her, but it flares sometimes. I do know she is a tad sickle hocked. I am to used to looking at her to point out her flaws. In pictures without me on her back. . She is pregnant haha, odd angles, but she is far to moody to stand still for me any time soon -.-



    Here!! You can see that darned swelling in her right pastern. I love the woolies on her feet above <3


    In this picture, she looks skinny...which confuses me because it is literally impossible for her to be skinny -.- Movement picture though.




    Can you see her front legs okay here?




    Sadly I have none on her hind end -.- People tell me she is a fairly nice mare. Though I have no idea if they're being kind or not. She's never had a problem except for that injury when we hit a pocket around a barrel in the arena -.-

    Thought on my baby girl?(:

    Not to sure if these help. After she foals and everything settles down I may be able to get better ones. The angles are so odd -.-

    Her back is a bit long, and her neck is a tad short. Her shoulder is steeper than I would like, and she is base narrow, at least in front.

    (Keep in mind, these angles are a little wonky, and I'm not the best at spotting an optical illusion.)

    I really like her. She's got a deep heartgirth, short cannon bones, and low set hocks. She appears to be a powerfully built little mare. Very nice.

    I really like her hip/ back end, she seems to have nice amount of bone and her canons/ pasterns are both nice lengths. Her shoulder looks pretty steep to me, and she is slightly sickle-hocked, her back may be a bit long and her pasterns are very upright. In the last picture she looks like she may toe in a bit. Overall, she is a nice mare, except for her steep shoulder and pastern angles. Don't forget to start a foaling thread!
    Also, these aren't the best pictures for a critique and I'm an amateur, so take what I say with a grain of salt, haha.

    I am not seeing sickle hocks, even in these photos. Got to get proper ones for a proper crit.
    Nor do I see swelling on the right front pastern.

    It will be a bit until I can snap some proper ones, she is all odd proportioned with a giant belly and a jiggly bum -.-
