It's really hard to do a critique without proper photos, but here's my best.

She looks to maybe be either wormy or have a hay belly.
Plain-ish head.
Thick throatlatch
Short, thick neck
Fairly steep shoulder(I think, someone correct me if I am wrong)
Decent forearms
Decent bone in her legs, though her fronts could be a tad heavier
Decent pasterns
She needs her feet trimmed
Nice short back
Her front third is longer than her middle and back thirds, which makes for an unbalanced horse and a horse that will likely be heavy on the forehand
Decent HQ assembly(I think, anyway. Again, correct me if I am wrong.)
A little straight through the stifle
Slightly sickle hocked

Overall I think she's cute, and her color is very nice. When you ride her work on getting her off the forehand, to strengthen her HQ muscles. :)

hahahaha, she is actually just 14.2 hands...ALMOST a pony :P I still call her a horse. She is very fat. No worms ..just fat. I will buy her some wormer just in case though...just to be safe.

I am a beginner and I love her. When I fall off it doesnt hurt that much...I just get up and get back on.

Thank You guys!
