My girl's confo (picture heavy)

Things I notice: Long back, long-ish pasterns, not the greatest shoulder angle, toes out slightly.



The next two she's standing akwardly in front so it looks like she's camped under.





Other side! Shoulder angle looks very steep because of how she's standing with her right leg.





Behind!



Front!




What she looked like a few years ago:



Does she look the same? Better? Worse?

Tear her apart :)

With just a glance I notice:
* toe out
* long back
* downhill
* weak hind end
* upright shoulder angle
* thick throatlatch
* slightly cowhocked
* not the most feminine head

She is very cute and she definitely built like a thoroughbred, so a lot of what I mentioned is typical for her breed.

Ohh, I disagree about how feminine her head looks! It's wonderful.

I don't think her back is too long compared to the rest of her. The pics are big so it was hard to scroll back and forth to get a good look.

I like her. She's typical TB and I don't see a lot of that conformation type as flaws. She does toe out.

How old is she? Very nice mare.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I agree with you, these pictures may not highlight it, but she has a VERY feminine head and has a baby face.

I have an imac with a HUGE screen so that may be why they look fine to me.

Yes, she's a very typical tb :P. Although some people have asked me if she's a qh or an appendix which I thought was weird? She's 8 (acts like she's 5.. hahaha)

Well, she does have a purdy face and you've got yourself a nice mare there.

me neither.
The lady who asked that then went on to lecture me about how I should be her trainer. It was a bunch of bogus.

Long story short.. I denied her.

I like her. But then again, I'm a sucker for thoroughbreds.

She filled out incredibly (muscle and fat, not height) in the past few months.

She does look tall compared to my mom though..
