Oldenburg mare critique,please? :D

This is Sequel. She is a 7 year old Oldenburg mare. She is 16.3-17 hands. She got excellent scores at her Oldenburg and other inspections,but I don't want to post those scores now. What is your opinion of her? PLEASE point out flaws. I certainly won't be offended. She is already in foal,but I am considering breeding her back to an Oldenburg or Hanoverian and would like to choose a stallion that compliments her of course. Stally suggestions are welcome too Also...I know these are not proper professional critique pics..lol...sorry about that. I just took a few field pics. The small blurry ones are from before I got her and I think she was around 3-5. And one pic of her in 2009 with previous and only foal by Popeye K. Thanks so much!

Well...if the prev. Owner wrote down the correct dates she will be due in the beginning of June :) She will have a few more ultrasounds in the meantime to be sure. I can't wait to see her baby either!! I am hoping for a chestnut with 4 socks...but eh...I'll probably end up with a bay with no chrome and love it all the same

I like her. For faults I see very high withers that can make saddle fit a bit problematic. This trait also shows a slight dip in her neck where it joins the withers. She has a good front.. nice lay to her shoulder and good angles. She might be a bit tied in behind the knee but looks to have adequate bone for her size.

Her hind leg is a tad straight and set a bit far back.. but this is splitting hairs.

The only thing I can see that concerns me is the way her right hind foot is turning as she walks in the third image with her walking towrd the camera. It looks like she is rotating her foot as she walks over it almost like a bowlegged behind horse would do. That being said, the photo is a still and it might be fine if you saw her moving in person.

She has a nice short back which will make her handy (in spite of her size) but with the long legs she may tend to catch her front feet with her hinds when collected and trotting. She may need boots on her fronts to keep her from removing her shoes with her hind feet. If that is a problem some would suggest her hind shoes have short trailers and her front toes be rocked. I hate trailers as the tend to stress a horse's hocks and would prefer front boots if that is an issue with her.

Nice horse. I like bays.. but the color is my last consideration.

Thanks Elana! She does have high withers!...Im hoping my passier fits her,but I havent gotten a chance to try it on yet.

I think the right hind was just off looking in that pic. She was coming towards me at an odd angle. I am going to try to get some videos to post of her for a better critique.

Thanks again!

She looks to be a really lovely mare.

Definitely has a high wither, and looks like a slightly long back. Stands under herself just a bit.
