    Personally, I don't like her appearance so much, although she looks like a sweetie. Her neck doesn't appeal to me, her front end seems too big for her hind quarters. I don't like her chest, how it ties in with her neck. I don't really like how her withers tie into her neck either.

    yep she's registered, Velvet Dakota King is her name. I love the old style, and I agree completely, Quarter horses and Thoroughbreds are just fine, but Appaloosas should stay Appaloosas:)

Meaning where the head meets the neck is very abrupt, too abrupt, forming a right angle instead of a curve. Which tends to constrict the windpipe. Also can cause compression of the larynx, when a horse is galloping it hinders the ability to breathe and hence its speed. It restricts its airflow. Looks like she has un-even hamms. Very pretty color
    Haha, never heard of a goose rump; explain please

    Well its not text book definiton but I figured out how to explain it in my own words. The point of hip is much higher then normal, and the butt dives down into attaching itsself to the tail. So its like a downhill slope.

    Oh ok, I know what you mean, like a lot of draft horses. :)
    As for the hip- remember her left leg is cocked, making her right hip stick out.
