    Conformation Error?

    Hey I don't mean to start anything, but I have been told by a few people I know that Janie's conformation isn't the best and me and my mum can't figure out whats wrong with it!lol can anyone tell me what were missing? I appreciate it!
    (And with all do respect, I don't want 2 certain people who's names start with H & D posting to this becuase of previous problems. Thanx!)

    I don't know much about conformation so I won't critique her but she is such a cutie! I love her light color and she looks like a very lovey dovey kind of horse!!

    I know a pony just like her that I do show jumping on. The pony doesn't have the cute face but it has the heart to do anything. Which I am sure is the same for her!!

    Have you noticed her blaze is off center a little?
    Just kidding, I think she looks great. :)

    Hehe yeah I know, when I first saw her, I told my dad she looks like those Breyer horses that there blaze got painted on wrong at the factory!

    :) She is gorgoues horseluver... I really think she is, and she has no majour faults in her conformation. She looks like a sweety

    Oh btw, I have a TB with a crooked blaze too hehe, adds character I think

    Let's see. I studied these pictures for a while. The only thing that caught my eye was in the last picture. Looks like she's missing a little chunk of her mane. But she's only 3, and probably loves getting into trouble.

    I couldn't find anything wrong with her.

    I'm only going to say one thing. Nothing mean and I won't carry on. She needs more muscle. I would point out other things that also aren't rude but I don't want anyone offended =D

    Is it possible for you to take a couple of shots with her head not down, straight from the side, about 20 feet away?

    I am not the best at spotting conformation issues, but I would give it a try. :)

    Maybe Sara will come on and give you some feedback...she is very good.

    What I think I see now (I may be wrong):

    Her shoulder may be a few degrees steeper than the ideal 45.

    Her back may be a tad long (I can never tell for sure though)

    I like her neck

    I think her pasterns are pretty good

    I think she has a pretty nice hip

    Great facial white :)

    She still has a bit of that awkward 3 year old look, but will outgrow that. :)

    I'm not critique, but here is what I first thought.
    She has really high whithers & a long back.
    I love her face, though
