In the top pictures she looks great. I like the way she moves...and the butt thing she will grow out of......shes pretty well proportioned.

Is there any chance you can get a pic. of her in full sunlight? I'm not seeing anything from that picture that I can base on honest critique on. Sorry.

Ah, yes that is a much better picture, Thanks! From what I see, she lacks a bit of balance. Her hip is higher than her withers and her hocks are higher than her knees which contributes to a lack of balance and might give her difficulty in getting her hind end to work underneath her. A little heavy in the hip and neck also contributing to the balance issue. She has a nice feminine look and a sweet expression though. She's cute and looks like she's very loved.

I'm not big fan of appys because of their color, but her coloring with spots here and there is REALLY nice. She built nicely too.

In the top photo she appears to be both slightly cowhocked as well as standing under in the back; whether that's how she stands normally or just how you've got her set up, I don't know. She is a little down hill in front, but that doesn't bother me a whole lot. She's got a pleasant head and nice balance over all.
