I know they're kind of grainy, thanks to the camera on my phone. Thanks ahead of time, please critique her as hard as you can. I got her as level and square as I could, and the shot from the rear she kept trying to step forward to turn and look at me... sorry!

It's hard to tell since she isn't very squared up. She looks like she has more growing to do and needs more muscle on her chest and rump.

I'll do my best to find pics of her from last year. She's 4, but was orphaned.

She looks like she has a short back. And needs lots more muscling in the rump area. But otherwise I think she's gorgeous. =)

She has kindof long pasterns and a slightly big head from what I can tell, but she's really pretty :)

Thank you ladies!

She's cutting bred on top, so the long pasterns are a bred trait. As for her long head, she's got 4 jockey club registered TBs on the bottom side.

She's not broke to ride yet, either, so the muscling has been hard to get, especially since she came emaciated last year. I've moved 3x since I took the pictures of her last summer, but I'm still looking!

definitely :) With some more muscling, her head would look better too :)
