She actually looks very well put-together to me.

If she were any longer backed I think she'd look a little off seeing as how she's a little on the shorter side.
She doesn't look like shes got a short back though. She looks good, well put together.

She's cute!

She's very pretty. :) I think her back is nor too long, nor too short. I also think she looks fine.

Ride more, worry less.

I agree with Sara, her back is long.
She's very pretty though.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

She has a long back, but not so long that it should overly effect her weight carrying capacity.

What do you plan to use her for?

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

She looks long backed to me. She also looks weak throughout the back as well. Some topline work would help make sure she doesn't start to get a sway back, and you should really look into it. Because... in the pictures, it kindof looks to me, like her back is starting to drop already.
