Confo critique

I've never really gotten into how to critique a horse or why this is bad or why that's wrong etc. But i'd love to know what you guys see with my two mares. These are the best photos I have . Both are tbs. The chestnut has raced and had 7 babies, she's turning 18 in march. The grey is turning 8 in may and never raced or bred. (if your curious on gingers story you can see it Photo Album - allforhorses)

Onto the photos ( keep in mind ginger was thin in some of these)

"mean nanny jean" Aka ginger















please no riding critique..













Luna's are comming now please wait untill I post hers

The first one, ginger, her back looks 'disconnected' to her bum. Which I've never seen that before so I don't know what its called....
And she is lacking quite a bit of muscle. But her face is cute.

Haha I have a kitty named luna :P

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Well if you look at the link I posted, she's a rescue =]. She's come a long way. She's just FINALLY , this month, hit her fat weight .so now its muscle and suppling time. This spring is real work time. We've done jumping and a lot of basic dressage up untill last month. She's a fast fast learner. We started collection, which she was doing awesome then she got a hematoma and went lame and now its snowing so im just hopping on her over her blankie to walk around the yard.

As for her back, I do have a chiro comming at some point haha. I heard its common in racehorses that it 'tears' from excertion (sp?) but it dosent cause any issues or any pain to her. But I want it checked out anyway.

Gingner;
Something weird with the back - I can't tell what's going on there. I don't think it's a chiro issue or anything like that, it's surely conformation. Super high tail set, over a the knee, built uphill, pigeon toed, . I don't like her hip. I can't tell you why exactly, something just looks off about it. It's probably because she's not up to prime weight and condition yet.

Luna;
Roach backed. That's the biggest issue I see with her. Otherwise she's a pretty cute little mare. Her neck ties in a little low, but that's not going to effect her very much. Her hip is a little steep too - but it could be the angle of the camera. Some of her with her head up and without a saddle would be better.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

No confo critique, but that western saddle looks like it is too wide for both mares, looks low on the withers and rocking... I would definitely get that checked out...

Cute horses though.

^ yes I know as I stated that they don't fit already. I don't use them.

The saddle on the grey is actually too narrow.
