    Wink Let's pick my mare apart, shall we?

    I've posted a critique for Ricci before, but I have better, squared up pictures of her now, as well as front and back views. =]

    Oh, and I took a side shot from both sides just to show off all her markings. And on to the pictures!

    No critique here.. But your stable, as well as your horse, are gorgeous! =)

    She has gorgeous markings! =] I'm no expert, but I do notice that her back is long and kind of sinks in the middle

    Well thanks for the compliments! But sorry, there's no room at my little barn. I only have three stalls and I already have three horses in them, haha.

    Wow, I'm sooo jealous, not only of your horse, but your barn too!

    My horses aren't picky. They will accept no stalls but just a pasture. They arent kept in stalls at home except to eat anyways. Lol.

    What a lovely property - so jealous! Her hip and shoulder angles are in balance, and her shoulder has adequate slope, and additionally she is straight across the topline. I'd like to muscle her up a bit, and see a neck that tied in higher at her chest, as well as shorten up and raise her back and make her stand a little wider - she appears base narrow from the front and camped under from the side. Also, from the rear, she toes out, so watch for her feet to "wing in" when she moves (she could injure herself). But she has a kind eye and looks lovely after her bath!

    Green Broke
    How old is she? She toes out in the back and her neck doesn't tie in well. She's lacking muscle which makes her look not as good as she could. She doesn't have a very good topline.

    What's going on with her tail? Is it cut that way for a reason?

    She is really white.

    Ricci is 17. Her topline is a work in progress. She does have a tendency to nick herself in the front legs as well as the back, but usually on her own, not while I'm riding. Her tail is a sad, sad story. She got it caught on something and yanked the black chunk out. It used to touch the ground. =[ So the white was cut because it looked better, and the black is growing in.
