Conformation Critique

This is Mercy, a QH/Arab. Thoughts on conformation?

Not bad. In the first pic his front legs look bent but it doesn't seem to show in the next 2... hmm..His ears are a bit far apart, which I know is an odd critique. A bit chubby but he definitely has a QH bum! Love the face & markings.

I just noticed, you can see her extended left nostril. She scraped most of the skin off her face during an accident when she was younger (according to her previous owner, you could see her sinuses) and the extended nostril is basically all that you can tell.
We were on a little bit of a hill in the first pic, so that might be why it seems off.

She looks pretty good! :) Very pretty horse.

It almost looks like his left front leg is crooked to his hoof. I don't know if it's real or if it's the picture or if I'm just seeing it wrong but tht's just what I see.

Better pictures would help. When you take pictures of the front try to get it a little more straight on. The picture is taken a little high I think. I applaud you for at least adding one from the front.

The third isn't usable for a critique. The second one the hoof is cocked and the last one looks like the horse is standing 'off balance' which can create 'flaws' that might not be there.

I would re take some pictures. This website will give you insight.

Also what is the age and what do you do with the horse?
