This should work:

I'm not the best at critiques so all I'll say it she is adorable and reminds me of my old horse.

That's not really the best photo to critique from. Could you get any of her standing square but not looking at the camera?
She is cute! She could gain some weight, though. Her butt is a bit high & she looks kinda downhill, although it could just be the way she's standing.

Ride more, worry less.

She's pretty. Very definitely Quarter horse. :P

As for a critique, her neck looks thin compared to the rest of her body and should line up with her shoulder more. Her withers are a bit high compared to her back and she needs work on her topline. She has a steep croup. In this picture she looks camped out, but I think its the angle and how she's standing. I love her colouring though. Very even and shiny! She's ribby so she needs some weight. But I think with some muscling and toning, she could do nicely. BTW, wasn't trying to be picky, just trying to be helpful.

I'm not sure that the picture is doing her any justice. I would like to see her squared up with the camera at a better angle.

She is very pretty! I think this picture is giving her an awkward look that isn't real flattering. She is a tad thin. I love how peaceful she looks in his arms though...Is she a real sweetheart?

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
