Okay, this is a bit...different. Any particular reason he's headless? Lol

I really like his shoulder, first off. His back is a nice length and he appears fairly level. His withers are fairly prominent, but he looks TB to me (could be wrong about that, but that's what I see), so if he is, that's not really surprising. His hocks seem set kind of high to me in some pics, but nice and low in others, so I can't really comment on his hind legs other than to say that they're nice and straight. I like his front legs, although it looks like me might be a touch over at the knee. His pasterns aren't overly long and have a decent slope to them. His neck is really difficult to judge since it's cut off in most of the pics, but from that second to the last pic (bottom left), it looks to be a decent length, just needs some muscle, and it appears to be set on rather nicely. I could be wrong, but he looks a bit pigeon-breasted to me.

Overall, I see a good-looking horse without too much wrong and the things that are "wrong" are relatively minor.

This mare will be 3 this spring so could definitely still do some growing/filling out. She is a warmblood from mostly Westphalian lines although she does have some TB (which explains the prominent withers). She will likely be put in the Oldenburg book though.

Thanks for the critique Drafty!

I have photos of the horse with the head ;) I just wanted to see the if the critiques were different with and without the head which (to me) kind of throws the body of for some reason. I'll post those pics in a bit. Its weird...I know...lol

LOL! Sorry for calling that pretty mare a HE in my critique! You didn't say, so I just assumed. I guess 'cuz I have a gelding, all horses are gelding to me unless otherwise stated.

No problem...She'll live..haha. Kay..here are some pics with her head. I really like this mare's body confo to be honest...especially for her age. But for some reason her head just throws me off...I might be completely imagining things and have studied it too hard. Let me know what you think? Maybe it is too small? Not long enough? IDK...hehe...I could just be nuts

Her head does seem a bit...short for her body. It looks like it belongs on a stock horse, not a warmblood, to be quite honest. The pic where she's looking at the camera, she looks almost mulish (sorry!). Do you have any summer pics of her? I know Aires' head looks COMPLETELY different from summer to winter and looks like it belongs on a different horse all-together in the winter. Lol

It does,huh? It doesn't really strike me as a typical warmblood head (like my avatar Oldenburg Sequel's head...looks like a good warmblood head to me). And I agree...her face does kind of give off a mulish feel. *Sigh* I was kind of hoping it was just me..lol. I don't have summer pics,but I do have some from a couple months ago that I will post. Her head is really the only thing that bothers me...which I know isn't obviously the most important confo part...it just seems to throw everything else off to me
Other than that she is a great mare...good lines,good confo,excellent personality. Its just that head
