Critique Willow

Today is mine and Willows 1 month anniversary!! i haven't post a critique for her yet so i thought it was about time. When i first got Willow her feet were so bad she could barley walk, she would just stand in one places all day and only move when it was time to eat or if she had to get a drink... now 1 month latter she's runny and bucking as happy as could be! the farrier comes out again on Wednesday to trim her again. Willow i was told is a breeding stock paint but she not registered so who really knows! ^^ she's 8 years old and about 15.3H. i rode her the other day and she did really good for not being ridden in quite some time. feel free to be as harsh as you like it won't change much in my mind. i do plan on showing her next year in western and i think she will do pretty good. ^^

Photo's go oldest to newest!!

I will get LOTS of new pictures of her on Wednesday after the farrier comes out!

Wow she is gorgeous!! And her feet look way better, keep up the excellent work. When you get lots more pictures definitely show, I would love to see her again. She definitely looks like a happier girl though. ;)

She looks good! Good Job.
I think as you two work and she gains some muscle and top line you both will steal the show!
Keep up the good work...
She is lucky to have you for a mom!!

Here is How I critique them^^
She has a very nice slop to the shoulder, which will mean she will be very smooth. The slope of the top of the point of the hip to the gaskin could have a little more slope, but it is still fairly good. This means she will be able to drive from her hind end. Her neck and head tie in very well, but it is kind of hard to tell about her back because of the pics. Over all she looks very good:)

I like her, very pretty mare. I could "borrow" her for a little (long) while if you'd like . LOL, sorry I've been on a "need another horse" kick for awhile now.

Critique - slightly sickle hocked (seems to be pretty common in the stock breeds now, my QH is too) and maybe a slightly long back? Otherwise Sorelhorse had good points. She looks like a sweetie too
