Critique My New Mare Please

This is my new Thoroughbred Halo. Please give me an honest conformational critique. I know what I like and what I was looking for in this mare but I would like some outside validation. Strong points? Weak points?
Now if you hate her, seriously, be brutally honest…..I can take it and she can’t read! I do plan to breed this mare to Sempatico, breeding paid for, just waiting for her to get in the mood.

None of the photos are great for an accurate critique, but she doesn't look badly balanced, she may be downhill a bit, and I am not a fan of how low set her pasterns are, but you didn't state how old she was, so that could be age related.

She seems really short for a TB, but very cute! It also depends on how you ride this mare as well. Do you ride her western?

No critique from me, but I would like to say that TB's come in various sizes. I have one that is 16hh and one that is barely 15hh.

She's a cutie! Reminds me of my mare Demi!

Hehe, she is actually a big girl.....16.3

She is ridden english. Currently flat work only since she is an OTTB and needs some reeducation!

Very pretty mare! She looks like she'd be an awesome english horse! She looks to have very straight legs and good confirmation! :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
