Critique my babies! :)

I finally got some pictures of my babies for a critique! Sorry if they aren't the best, Sadie just got done with a two hour ride and was ready for dinner, and LaKota...well getting a six month old to stand still is like taking a kids to an amusment park and telling them to not ride the rides lol.

Sadie, a nine year old cropped out paint mare. And then LaKota, a six month old red dunn...paint? I have no idea who his sire would be, and beleive his mother was a quarter horse.

I also have some pictures of just little things I like about them, some cuteness ones, and some of sSadie's horrid flybites on her tummy (had them when I bought her) I love his spots, would that classify him as a paint??

Here'a what I can see and remember without scrolling back and back throught the picures and tiliting my head from side to side for the pictures in various orientations (hint hint) . .

Mare is camped out behind and her stifle is really steep. Her hindquarters are under developed and the connecting area of pelvis to spine looks a litte crooked, which jives with her legs being camped out behind. It looks like maybe, just maybe, her hind end might be oiut of alignment and might benefit from chiropractic. But one cannot really tell all that just from photo. She does't have much abdominal muscle tone, so her back kind of sags. Her shoulder is good, neck a bit short and thick. Her pastern angle doesn't match her hoof. Hoofes are low in heels and long in toe. not good. Her expression looks a bit pained. maybe feet? maybe bug bits (use Swat?)

Baby is better conformed IMO. He has what looks like maybe a little crooked front right knee, but since photo is not straight on, hard to tell. Nice hind end on him , cuter than crazy face, neck set on a bit low, but so hard to tell with babies becasue they grow all wonky.

thank you, her hind end being all outta shape is just because she has been outta work for quite a while, and her pained expression you be because dinner was ten feet away and she was forced to take a couple of pictures :) lol< and i tried to turn the pictures but idk what happened lol, and this knee pics were just to show the speckles. And I looove love love my baby boy, I have had him since the moment he hit the ground on good friday, hes always been pretty. And she definanly needs a trim, but I tell you, finding a GOOD farrier around here is next to impossible! I have someone new I plan to call tomorrow, sucess hopefully lol

tinyliny got most of what I had to say out there. What exactly did you have plan for these two? With her stifle being as steep as it seems to be this will affect her speed and performance. I agree with her hide end looking a bit out of place but it could easily be the picture or the way she might be standing. So hard to tell when you not right there too see. Her neck is extremely to short for my own liking which will affect the way her head is set.

The babe does have a better conformation although he is still young that may change, I adore him he has a nice hind end and a low set neck that IMO I like just because of western pleasure. He is beyond cute and i thnk he will be beautiful once he grows into himself

Thanks, I planned to use her for barrels. Not super competitive, just playdays. She really turns on a dime though. And I love my colt, I want for him to do a bit of everything. What "color" would he look good in? Like halters and stuff :)
