    Critique our now ''ex-rescue'' mare, please...

    Yeah, it was a ‘nightmare’ getting these pics of Nightmare (her name will probably be changing soon)... She completely freaked every time I tried to get a good rear shot, so I had to go with a mediocre one... and she refused to stand correctly/still, so again, we have mediocre shots... She’s extremely spookish and nervous and any quick movement or loud voice scares her.

    Anyway, I’d estimate her age to be between twelve and fifteen, going by her teeth...
    Her height, I’m unsure of... I’d guestimate that she’s around probably 14.3 hands.
    As far as weight goes... I’d have to say probably not above nine-hundred and twenty-five.
    Yes, her hooves need to be trimmed... As soon as we’ve gained her trust, we’re planning (I’m planning) on working with her to teach her to pick up her hooves.
    Yes, she needs another good deworming... we dewormed her today and will be doing it again probably next week or in the next two weeks.
    Yes, she needs to be groomed... she hasn’t had an all out grooming session done on her in over a year.
    Yes, she needs muscle...
    Yes, she is an Arabian.

    Those front legs make me very uneasy!! O.O Does anyone else see something wrong there...

    Looks like she will be a cute little mare when she gains some weight and some muscle! :) definitely going to need a good farrier to come out and work on those toesies :P

    Uhm I'm not really good with in depth critigue but I can see a few things.. straight/steep shoulder, very pigeon toed, cow hocked, narrow chest, short neck and that's all I've got please someone with more exp correct me if I'm wrong about anything :)

    She is lovely, im not good on critique but think its nervous standing that's making her front legs look a bit odd, can't wait to see what she looks like in a few months

    Thanks... yeah, I wasn't sure about her front legs either... I thought something looked off... but it could be her nervousness... she wasn't wanting to stand still and kept moving around and was really tense...

    Anyone else like to try for a more in-depth critique?

    I think she's standing a lil off and it makes her front legs took as if they are splayed. The pastern to the coronet tooks as if it may be a problem, but you wont be able to tell untill she's had a bit of work odone on her feet.
    Other than looking a lil wormy bellied she looks really nice with a good head.
    Would live to see some pics of her in a few months.

    This is my VHO so bear with me.

    She's toed in, and because of that her knees seem a little twisted as well. Not severely. I'd imagine with a good farrier that could be eased a bit.

    She's cow hocked but I like where her tail is set. I think she has the possibility of having a very nice rump when she fills out.

    I think once she's been wormed, cleaned up and has some weight and muscle she will be very pretty. She's already a cute girl.

    Good luck!!!

    The only thing I see that could cause you some trouble is that left(right in the pic) forelimb... it looks like she's messed it up early in life or she just has a deformity, id get a vet to do some exrays just to check it out a bit more just in case.... other than that she looks like she needs some tlc and time and she will be great...
