    Very pretty mare! Nice head, neck and shoulder slope. She has a weak back, weak over her loins and she is cow hocked. My favorite thing about this horse is her huge liquid eye, just beautiful.

    All around her shape is too upright. The shoulder is steep as well as pasterns, which creates a long back and neck. Though her hip is decent, her hocks don't have enough angle- she's post legged.

    On the bright side her color is gorgeous! Never seen one quite like that. And I agree she has a very fetching eye

    I agree , except I dont' see a steep shoulder.
    Her legs being so upright is what I see in first impression. I assume this is what they call a "halter bred" horse? I am NOT a QH person, so kind of picked up on this from the forum.

    She is still a pretty horse, and for everyday use, probably a very nice ride.

    Wow ! You are exactly right. I didnt expect anybody to get that. Haha I didnt even bother to mention it. She is a halter bred horse :o
    And yes she is gorgeous and she knows it :) We are going to start competing and we will be competing in halter showmanship and western pleasure right now. And we will possibly be competing in english pleasure and crossrails

    Nice Mare overall. See a nice head & neck,decent shoulder. She is 11 yrs old so is starting to loose her topline . Her hind legs she toes out & looks a bit posty but some of that is the way you have her set up her hind legs are just a bit too far behind her she needs to be set up more square under herself. It will improve the look of her leg angles & hip{she does have a decent hip}. You should do well with her, just love her sabino markings

    I agree with, paintedpastures- its the sand she's in that's making her legs look kinda strange..

    Her legs arent too straight to me they are correct-- hinds and forelegs. She looks like she may stand base wide- she does appear a little swaybacked- building her topline muscle will make it look a little better.. her neck is properly portioned for her body- clean throatlatch- adorableeeee face markings.. I could squeeze her face off! (not literally) lol. oh- I like her feet-- they are actually bigger than most impressive bred horses that I've seen.. very nice mare you got there! I think shell place well. :)
