Every horse would have an excellent "shoulder slope" if calculated like that; in fact her shoulder is a bit steep. The red markings mean very little to me - I will pull up one of Denny's photos and do the same thing, it means very little.
Though... in the grand scheme of things, she is a nice mare. Overmuscled for what I would like, which can make her seem unappealing, and can have a negative effect on the way she moves for us 'movin horses' types, but her base conformation is quite nice. A bit posty-hocked (of course), hind legs set back on the haunch, and a bit of a diaper butt, but all in all, I do like her.
I'm giggling over the red marks, but all in all the mare herself certainly isn't something I'd be quick to scoff at. Is she perfect? No, she has her faults, but she's nicer than a lot of "broodmares" out there that shouldn't be reproducing...
