Critique Dixie

I'd like to know EVERYTHING, both good and bad about her conformation please.

She's in foal in some of the pictures, that's why she's fat

Honestly what do you think of her overall look?

She's a 16(ish) year old Morgan Thoroughbred cross mare.

Is she any good for barrels?

I know she hasn't got real good confo, but what do you think?

I'm not sure if she is downhill or not. In the first one she doesn't look it, but the others, she does. I don't think you'd have any problems doing barrels with her, though. If you were jumping, the downhill thing would be a problem, but its not really a big deal if you're just doing barrels. :) She's cute.

Ok, thanks.

I don't think she's downhill like that. In the second picture she's on un-even ground, and the one where she's tied up there is a dip from my impatient horses pawing:)

Anything else?

Her shoulder looks off-ish, but not like OMG! But I'm really bad at criticizing confo. I may be wrong ^^'

These pictures arent great but she looks to be ok, the only thing that really stands out to me is her croup is kinda flatter than ideal. Her feet and legs look to be straight, head and neck ties in nicely and her back isnt she in foal in the first picture? If not then she looks like she needs a diet and a workout

And yes, the only picture she's not in foal in, is the 2nd one.

Only 2 people?

She can't be perfect!

I think her back might be a little long and maybe a bit toed out behind but it might be the way she's standing. She's cute though :)
