She looks very "drafty" in these pics and a steeper croup is not unusual in draft breeds as it gives them leverage to pull equipment. However, while a Candadian Horse should be stout and compact, this mare in particular looks overweight for her breed standards. She is beautiful, too, just needs to lose a few pounds.
Very good point. I didn't think the slope was very steep, but since you pointed it out, that does look like an optical illusion.

Thanks guys that's great information! Ya she is a bit overweight - we're working on that. I got her underweight and took her the opposite extreme. But she is draftier than most in her breed, there's a sporty version and a drafty version. I prefer the drafty version anyway ^^
