Nice coat colouring and shiny. Let her mane grow out so it doesn't stick up (unless that's just the wind). Beautiful length tail but just one bit of advice...when you erase the lead from the photo remember to erase the lead in the shadow as well :)

Taking a glance at this pony, her proportions seem a bit off. Her neck and head look a little oversized for her body but it could just be the picture. Her neck is thick and is lacking muscle definition. The rest of her body seems to be in good weight. Also, this could just be the way she is standing but it looks as if she is a bit calf kneed (front legs do no line up straight past the knee. She does have nice clean legs though with a longer forearm, shorter cannon and nice sloping pastern. This will allow for shock absorbsion. Her back legs look a little "camped under" (sickle-hocked) which is not very good. But again, could just be how she is standing. She has a long, upright shoulder, which will prevent free forward motion on her front end (shorten her stride on the front). She has a nice straight back and has a slightly sloping croup (generally good for speed short distances).
This is a cuute little mare. She is lacking muscle definition in her shoulder, hind end and neck but is over all in pretty good shape! :)

Heart: Finally someone gave perfect critique :)
1. proportoins seem a bit off>>of course she isn't perfect, she is cross breed without any breeding intentions (foaled by an accident). But still I think that it is partly because of the image, she really doesn't have so big head in real
2. neck is lacking muscles>> Yes. But we are solving this :) I am glad she obeys my basic aids now, we couldn't work on muscles before :) But now we are building them a lot, neck as well as back and butt.
But i still agree with you :) Maybe I'll try o find some pictures of her legs to see that cow-or whatever problem :)
>>thanks for critique :) really :)

Haha no problem! Glad I could help :)
She really is a cute little thing. And yeah if you could get some pics from the front and back to show her legs that would be great! Congrats with your progress and keep up the good work.

She's cute as can be, but she looks like she might have a bit of a roach back. I kinda like the flyaway mane though, lol

Oh, taht's possible, even though I dodn't notice. But she was "rutting" (i used my dictionary>>this "once-a-month-only-mare-thing", you know ) and when she is in this "her days", she arches her back upward really often, with secreting the liquid....
