Hello. I am new to critiqueing and thought id put my horse up here to see what is thought of her. She comes off working cow lines with a little western pleasure as far as I can tell. She is foundation bred and 10 months old in pic.
Since she's only 10 months old, it's hard to give an accurate critique because chances are she'll change drastically by the time she's "all growed up."
She has a decent shoulder, neck attaches a little low to the wither. Nice wither-to-back attachment, putting her center of gravity right in the middle of her. Nice short back. Pointy hip, and a steep croup. Legs (from what little I can see) look nice, fairly straight pasterns.
Overall she is a nice-looking horse, I certainly wouldn't complain about her being in my herd ;)
Thank you. I really love her, although we've had a lot of resistance right when I got her. She was scared of people and had only been handled 4 times. We bonded when she cut her butt open and needed two rows of stiches. She gives kisses and nickers every time I come out to the barn.
I agree about posting pics when she's older as well. Young horses always look long and gangly looking. But she is very cute and looks good overall. I agree her butt is high. Her neck could also be thicker. But she has nice legs and looks like a sweetheart! What's her name?
Her name is Ladybug, reg. Name AR Skipas Nifty Lady. Yes, Im going to probably wait until next year and get some good conformation pics on her. And for her neck, we like them thin and a little low set for reiners and cutters, although most QH/paint people like them pencil thin for just about anything now, lol. She is already pretty keen on keeping that head down right now with me lunging her. She will drop her poll and carry it slighty below the withers.
Here she is at 13 months old. I just took some new pics the day before yesterday. She is a cutie. I had her lunging every day and on a halter horse diet, but when she got hurt, I cut WAY back on her feed and hay to make sure she wasnt high and ripped the stiches, so I have just now started her back up on her original diet. What do you guys think??
