Mercedes!

Hellooo, I am just posting pictures so that I could get everyones opinion on my horses over all conformation/appearence. Thanks in advance!!

Mercedes - Dun BSP, she will be 2 in 7 days! I don't work her much, I will lunge her every so often at a slow walk/trot. She will not go under saddle training until she is 3, even then we'll be going slow :) Her mother and grandmother were bred for speed classes...and that definitely passed on! I have no idea who her father was.

I'm not very good at critiquing but I'll give it a shot...
- Bum high, but she's still pretty young so she'll probably even out some.
- She seems extremely well built to me and I love her face and her coloring.

Very cute horse and I bet she'll make an awesome speed horse!!

Kinda hard to critique, but she does look a bit downhill & butt-high. ;) Cute though.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Thank you! Yeah...she has growth spurts and her butt is the first thing to go up! Haha, the rest of her will catch up eventually :)

I'll say! She looks to have the same kind of mane as Maia... multicolored and stuff. Too cool.

I know! That is why I love duns :) That and her dorsal stripe are my favorites...especially when you braid her mane, it's awesome :)

She does seem a bit butt-high, but it could just be her age. She's adorable though ... I love her! She's gorgeous!!

Here's what I see, although the angle of the pictures make it difficult to critique her:

- Nice eyes, with a nice dainty head.
-Definately bum high but she's only 2, that should even out a bit yet.
-Balanced.
-Nice Bone mass.
-Lovely Color.
-Nice topline.
-Her neck looks odd to me.

Overall I like her, very pretty girl you have there, good luck :)

nice hocks and great shoulder! I love horses that are built like her, she'll go for lots of miles before she breaks down. I think her neck is set a little low, but with some muscle you won't even notice anymore. Pretty girl!
