    Critique my mare. :)

    Just wondering what everyone's opinion is on my APHA mare, whether it is good or bad. I just want to hear opinions and what discipline you think she is excelling in (she has a job and I am more curious what others would put her in. More just for conversation here). Critique away! TIA

    Her breeding - Dar Chicos Rebelmccue Paint

    The best confo shot I have on hand. From approx March 2010. Yes she has a scrape on her right rear. It was a superficial removal of hair on the leg. She's in her winter woolies in this picture. Being where I am located all the horses look like yaks and Callie seems to take it farther.




    And here are a couple of pictures of her being ridden this summer. This is actually a friend riding and working with her on a few things. She had never seen a bull whip so he was working with her on desensitizing to it. She pretty much ignored it after about 5-10 minutes.

    I normally ride alone so these are some of the very few pictures I have of her under saddle.

    Well, she is quite butt-high. It could be the way she's standing, but her legs do seem quite far apart (though not horribly & better than too close ;)
    Her front legs seem nice &straight however in 2 of the pics (again, may be the way she's standing) she seems cow-hocked in the back...
    Personally I don't mind her head or coloring. I'd say she'd be good for just about anything lol depending on how serious a competator you are...
    Trails, barrels etc or even jumping ;)
    Sorry if I sound brutal lol i'm just trying to be honest...

    Lol She has leveled out since that picture. I am hoping that she is done growing now! She is slightly cow hocked.

    I am hoping to get some GOOD confo shots this weekend when my husband gets home from his school.

    On the brutal thing... lol I WANT brutal. That is usually when you get the most honest answers.

    From the confo shot, she is hip high, her neck is set quite high (which can make her naturally 'high headed'), and she is cowhocked, from what I can tell from the other shots. Her front pasterns have a bit steeper angle than her rears, which could become a source of pain for her later on. She is a bit higher hocked than I like, as well, but not majorly; a low hock helps a horse more naturally drive from behind).

    I do like how 'compact' she seems, and she has a decent shoulder, and she is decently muscled. She has a pretty gentle expression, and she could likely do pretty well in just about anything with the right training and exercise to build her up and help her be stronger. From your avatar, she has a HUGE hip!

    I will take a stab and geuss she is either a barrel horse, or a roping horse...

    Nope! Not a barrel horse or a roping horse!

    Anyone else want to take a stab at her conformation? Like I said, I am getting better pictures of her this weekend, as well as of the other horses around here.
