Thanks again everyone :) She gets really fuzzy in her throat latch area so maybe it looks thicker than the previous picture because of her winter coat?

Also, her back legs are on a slope a bit in the newer pics, so that's probably why she looks downhill because I don't think she does in the first pic.

Well, I'm assuming the top photo was when she was in much better condition! She's a little chubb monster! Not that I can really say much. LOL

I'll start off with what I don't like:

First thing that flies out to me (aside from the throatlatch, but that's been beaten to death. LOL) is the size of her shoulder compared to her hip. She looks like the type of horse that is moving off her shoulders and not her hind quarters when she's working.
By doing that, she's putting all her weight on her front, and not only making her a much "heavier" ride, it builds up mass amount of muscles while the hind end gets left behind (No pun inteded!) thus leaving the hind end with very little work so the muscle gets depleted.
Making sure she's working off her hind end and doing those exercises should help to build that up, and even her out some.

She does appear to stand a bit under herself, especially in the front end. Slightly toed out and sickle hocked, but nothing major.
Her neck could tie in a little bit nicer into her wither's, but, eh. lol

What I like:

Despite the lack of muslce, I really do like her rear end. She's got a nice round croup with a very nice tail set. A good slope to her hocks which tells me she should be atletic and WILL be able to get down on that hind end if she wanted too.

Good length between her back and neck, and a nice topline.
She's got a pretty face (although I do like mine a LITTLE bit more feminine) with a nice distance between the eyes and nostrils.
She's got a good eye, and looks to be a very quiet horse!
And I love her mane, tail, and ears!

Thanks so much for your critique WSArabians :) Her face doesn't seem very feminine in those pictures, as they are NOT very cute pics of her. I suppose she has gotten chubbier xP and I want to try to avoid that.. I feed her 3 flakes of grass hay and 2 1/2 lbs. of strategy grain a day.. but I suppose they are supposed to get fatter in the winter time, plus she is WAY fuzzier in winter.
Here's some cuter pics of her.. not for critiquing but just to show how cute she really is! xD
(the first pic is from today meeting the new mare for the first time :) )

Awww, I like her alot! She's pleasing to the eye and very proportionate. She could use some more muscling but she's super cute overall in my opinion.

The first picture really shows her off... the new ones make her appear downhill and thick in the throatlatch area, I'm assuming that's due to her winter fuzziness!

She is really cute... She is alittle small in her haunches... She could use more muscle.. She is alittle thick in her throat.. She has a big neck. In a couple of the pics it looks really big.. She is alittle think in her throat latch.. She is alittle toed out in back and her knees come together alittle in the front... They slant towards each other slightly.... But Over all she is GREAT!!!! She is VERY cute I like her alot...

She only gets 3 flakes a day? I wish my horses would look like that on 3 flakes lol. They usually get between 4-5.
