Been off for a month.

Feel free to say whatever about Lizzy.
I already know her conformational issues.
She's three years old and a paint and has had about 1 month of riding off due to my knee injury, so she's lost some muscle.
Her feet need done too...

She's quite an ugly little thing I have to get her in show shape!

She has pretty good lines I like the doc bar lines. What kind of dicsipline do you ride her in?

It's hard to say anything about her front legs because of her feet, which are reallllly overdue. I'm sure you know this...but if a horse wears shoes, the feet should be done at least every 6 weeks. Because of the length I can't critique her front legs

Definitely needs more topline muscles especially in her neck. Toes out in back
But other than that, can't find anything else wrong.

I love her blue eyessss! They both are blue, correct? You're doing WP with her, correct?

In the picture where she's squared up (7th one), she looks to be sickle hocked, as well as calf-kneed, and that appears in another photo also. I'm thinking thought that that might appear so because of her long toes and how she stands with them. She also has a narrower chest then I prefer, but that's just opinion

I think she is in pretty close to show-shape now though! It won't be lots of work to get her ready. I'm so impressed you can keep her so clean! My mare has socks, and those are hard enough!

Oh yeah, she's cow-hocked!
She's sickle hocked but not as much as she seems in the pictures because of the angle..

I know I just had her feet done...

And yes, I do western pleasure, english, and I've been working her in reining.

Aww I love the brown ears and her face on the last picture
I'm not good at critique but she is very good looking and is in great condition for having a month off!

if a horse wears shoes, the feet should be done at least every 6 weeks
Actually you can leave them up to 8 (possibly a smidge longer) if you don't do much riding and your horse has good quality feet :)

Really? That's farriers I've talked to said 6 weeks max and for barefoot 9 weeks max.

Strange hehe

I think she'll make a great WP horse, Harlee!! And I think she looks in show shape now!

Yeah because we usually do 7 weeks in winter, but nobody could bring in the ponies so we postponed it 2 weeks so that would be 9 weeks and they were all fine
