Critique Tennessee Walker mare's weight please?

This is Hope. She is 10 years old and 15hh. Up until 5 days ago was getting 4# per day of a mix of oats and cracked corn with a little molasses for taste from a local feed mill along with free choice good quality hay.
She is now getting 4# of Purina Strategy Healthy Edge per day along with free choice good quality hay. She's only been on the HE less than a week so not enough time to really notice a difference, but she seems to love it.

Please excuse the muddy hooves and dusty coat I hadn't groomed her yet. BTW, she was dewormed the day this pic was
Taken which was 2 days ago so she's pouting LOL! She hates it haha!! I know she's standing funny too. Thanks in advance!

Very pretty horse. I don't think her weight looks too bad. My horses are horribly overweight so she looks much better than them either way! Lol

Thank you! She usually loses a bit of weight in the Winter so I really have to stay on top of it. As long as she stays where she is now through the winter I will be happy LOL! In the Spring and Summer she gets too fat so I have to cut her feed way back.

I think her weight looks perfect. Keep here there and add muscle and she will be a stunner.
