the only thing that pops out at me is she has a rather short neck, but a nice back and is pretty level from shoulder to rump.

Something about the hind legs has got me.. stumped

Her neck is to short and something about her shoulder bothers me. It's to big?

shoulder looks like its set up a little high. she dosent have the typical qh stocky look. Shes got prominent withers, probably just needs more muscle under the saddle area. i think shes pretty cute! i love her face.

I don't mind the way she looks. I noticed the short neck, but I love her rear end! Congrats!

Her hind legs are crooked, to straight isn't good, and neither is too crooked. It just put's more strain in their legs. She has a short, skinny neck for her body, most QH are known for their thick necks. Is it just me, or do her front hooves look a little long? Probably caused by her legs...

She is very pretty =] I love her sweet face.

We are working on fixing her front feet, No heel at all, and to much toe... thankyou to the farriers that do this! She has no muscle mass at all right now as she wasnt worked at all. I noticed the shoulder thing, Hopeing it changes with muscle. Shes standing on unever ground to. Ill try to do other pictures later, but yes her face is adorable!

Horses are like Pringles... You can't just have one :)

Yep, same as everyone else mentioned, needs muscle mass and her neck is a bit short. Her shoulder is a bit straight but not terrible. I personally don't like her back legs at all but if she is sound, then no worries. They are just a bit ugly; cow-hocked, camped out, and sickle hocked by my eye. She is a pretty girl and I agree, her face is just adorable. It looks like she has a nice soft eye.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
