Critique my 12 year old mare?

Nani is twelve years old and we do show hunter (local and B level shows) at the 2'6"/2'9" height and we plan to do english pleasure on her soon (local shows). She is also a great little trail horse and has been schooled level 2 dressage. What do you think of her?

Front (I couldn't get her to stand square)

Back (sorry about her tail)

What is her breed?

Does she have scarring on her shoulders? They seem over-developed almost. She seems to have a short neck. Her knees look a bit odd (maybe they are just really big).

She does have a nice look about her. I love her face and I love her color.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Oh sorry I thought I included her breed, she is a unraced thoroughbred and yes, she has a rather large scare on her left shoulder.

No critique from me. I like her. She's got quite the shoulder on her but unlike what Solon was posting I personally don't see anything unusual with her knees. She has a very feminin face to her. I think she's a cutie :)

She's purty. :) Her neck actually looks rather long to me. I think she may be a bit sickle-hocked, but from behind, she looks really great. Her hocks line up really well with her butt and legs, which makes her not cow-hocked. Her knees do look a little weird. And her legs are a bit short for a tb. Cute face. :)
