Bit of a guessing game

Okay. Critique my mare, Annie. The only information I will give you is that she is a grade paint mare. I want you all to guess her age and height and tell me if you think her conformation says she will stay sound. :)

Thank you and have fun guessing. :)

hmm....15 hands..no clue abput age. In the first pic, she look very butt high, in the second, she doesnt look as much. I wonder if I could say she is built downhill a bit?looks at all future critiquers*. Overall, I'd say she has very decent conformation, and is a very gorgeous girl! Somthing bugs me about her front legs/shoulders in the first and second pics though........

I'm no good at conformation, but I do know "no hoof no horse". That horse's feet are in bad need of a trim. Very long toes in front.

I would say she's atleast 15hh, 1000 lbs. She's pretty decently built over all; a bit toed out, especially behind, and she's a little downhill built.

I will guess that she's between 15-18 yrs old

These are old pics from spring. I am very well aware that she was in need of her feet being done. She is on a 6 week rotation and I can assure you that they were done shortly after that.

I will keep her age, height, soundness, etc a secret for a little while longer.

14.3-15 hands. She is a little down hill, and a little long through the back for my liking. She does look like she toes out on all fours. I don't see any huge reason for her to be lame.

(I totally have that halter XD Same colors)

Alrighty....


She's barely 14.1 hh
She's 17
And she's cowhocked and downhill. She doesn't really toe out in front, the angles of the pic are terrible. She wouln't stand still and I was the only one there.

I have had people on other forms tell me her front legs won't hold up, but apparently they have. She is a barrel horse, not worked hard but worked enough.
