Critique Conformation


I wanted to post this picture of Princess, my paint mare. Here is a second photo. She is ten years old. I would love to hear your thoughts on her conformation.

I can't see anything to critique in those pics. Can you get pics of both sides, from the back, and from the front, all including feet?

I read your responses and I said to myself, the pictures I posted where side shots! I clicked on my links and just realized that the wrong link is attached!

I am sorry. Hopefully it will work this time. I am not sure why that happened.

Side view Head up

Side view Grazing

Is there a way to attach a photo from my computer? When I click on the photo button, the web-link dialog box comes up.
Hope fully this will work!

Nope. have to be on facebook for those. You can copy and paste the link here, or go to the "upload" button on the thread poster.

Upload your pictures to photobucket or some such site. Copy the "direct link." Come back to your thread, click the add image button [the one with the little mountain] and paste the link.

I did see the pictures, and I'm not very good at conformation, but her head looks very large and her neck looks very small and skinny. It could be the angle, but that's what I see.

I agree-- head and neck are not proportioned. Her pasterns also look quite long. Also looks like she is built downhill.

Thanks! Cadence
