How's Lacey looking?

I know the last time she was critiqued people were saying she needed more muscle and I'm wondering how she's looking.
I'd also like to know about any "faults" you think she might have, just cuz I find that stuff interesting. Haha

I know that's she's weirdly butt high and I think her back could still use a little muscle but I can't see anything more than that. Haha

This is the picture people were saying she needed more muscle in (she was standing with her front legs in a really funky way...) :

This one is from April (I don't have a good more recent critique picture):

And here's one from last week to look at muscle/topline wise:

And just for cuteness factor:

Lacey in her 4th of July bling. She hates pictures.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

What a transformation there! I can't believe it's the same horse. I'm not an expert in any way, shape or form, but she looks pretty good to me.

Everyone else pretty much said it. =D
She doesn't even look like the same horse. Her topline looks 100% better, and she just looks healthier and better maintained in general. You've done a fantastic job with her. Kudos!

Aww, thanks! She used to be severely obese and she hadn't been ridden in 2 years when I got her (last July) so over the winter she had kinda gotten to the point where she had lost the weight but still hadn't gained any real muscle. I'm really proud of her. She's a special girl, who would guess she's 24? =P

Random question: How tall do you think she is? I'm about 5ft 6in or a little taller and that's me in that last picture... I always figured she's probably 14.3 or 15hh but I really have no idea what certain heights look like. She's a little shorter than my shoulders...
