    Arrow "The Mare" ~ Anybody wanna critique her?

    Well, Savannah (AKA "The Mare") has started her training undersaddle again.

    Informations~
    Height: 12.2
    Age~ 11 year old
    Breed~Icelandic Cross (she is gaited)
    Other~ She was broke by my farrier's son; for Trail I think. Sold around in the auctions after the son grew out of her, then her previous owner (Grace) broke her to English. Very green undersaddle (but knows how to jump, w/t/c/g; but very very green at it)

    ~I know she has an ugly shoulder, horrible hip, and toes out in the back and front. And has cute tiny ears.

    - I would like your opinions on what her career could be. We recently trained her to do pony rides, but I think she has a future in shows.

    -LOVES to weave, barrels, and spins on a dime. Her favorite gait is "Mommy look how fast I can go while I'm bucking!!"

    Well, here's The Mare. Please go easy, lol.

    Her rear (sorry she isn't fully square)



    Her shoulder/neck -



    Her head/shoulder/partical back -



    (Gotta love my moms face, LOL!!)

    Her full body shot -



    I love this picture!! It shows her personality perfectly! ("Go. Away. I want. My. Food.")

    She looks thin, but it's her build. SHE NEEDS MUSCLES, I know this .

    Thanks;
    Anny

    I can't really critique her conformation with any of those pictures. You need sides fronts and backs on flat ground, the whole body in the pictures, with the horse standing square, on flat ground.

    She's got a high neck seat, but a decent shoulder. She's got a decent length back, but a steep croup. She looks to have decent legs, although slightly cow hocked. She does have low set hocks which will aid her in still being able to drive from the rear end, off setting the lowset croup. I like her kind appearance in her eye, and face. She looks to be uphill built, which might actually make her good at jumping. Over all her flaws probably won't hinder her much, she just may not have the potential to collect as well as if she didn't have them.

    In these pics she does appear to be dark brown\bay. It must have been the coat and shedding coat that made her look different in her other pics. She may not be a true roan, but have a rabicano gene, which will cause her to get more white hairs each year, but would never look like a full out roan.

    Usually, with her winter coat, she turns this reddish, bay-ish, brown-ish color. In the summer, her back partially roaned out. Lemme go see if I have a pic from the summer..
