5 year old QH mare

Here is abby. She's a registered quarter horse mare, reg. Name is Docs Silver jill. She's all cow bred, but running barrels. She's currently a 3D/4D mare, and getting faster the more we haul. I'd like a critique of her, I know she's a little bum high, but she's still growing....believe it or not lol. And she needs more muscle in her neck, which is something else I'm working on. But tear her apart, I want to know what you guys think.

I don't have a critique for you but im from Kansas too!!! What part are you from? Im in the north east. Oh and your mare here is very pretty but I don't know much about conformation so all I can say nothing really sticks out to me drastically besides she's downhill but you said she's still growing so that's understandable. :)

Steep crouped, a little weak in the back, but really I love everything about her...until you get to her front legs. Calf kneed and tied in behind, funky lump on right front fetlock, light bone throughout cannon, starting to get underrun heels--watch her. You might talk to your vet/farrier about therapeutic shoeing to minimize the risks of that conformation flaw. Otherwise, lovely horse, but be sure to take care of her front legs....

Bubba.

She has a calcium build up, that's what that bump is. Vet checked it and said its just cosmetic.

She's actually got a crooked right front patern bone, she's barefoot in the winter but she does get corrective does when I shoe her

Just curious as to her age/ If she is still growing (as you say she is) then it would seem hauling her and running her on barrels might be asking too much too soon.

Butt high as you say.. would probalby do better with a lower butt.. and I also agree that her front legs are weak with the tie in below the knee and the calcium nodule and the slight back at the knees.

Other than that, looks a good one!

She is 5 years old, but has actually grown a couple inches since I bought her. If I didn't feel that this mare could physically handle the demand I asked of her, I wouldn't be running her. I could have boughten a seasoned horse for what I paid for her, but I chose miss abby because I liked the way she was built and her attitude is to die for lol.

She is bum high, but it also is muscle because she is very muscled in her hindend, and she is a very hard working girl. Well that's what I'm hoping lol. I can get recent photos of her, I think these were taken about a month ago? Because that was when we had our big snow storm
