    Paint mare-the TRUTH

    What do all of you think? I will not get upset at any remarks. Bad or good. Just want the truth. Never had a paint before no nothing of the paw prints or what makes a good color pattern. Could you please tell me what you guys think of her color? Are the paw prints typical? Is her black white ratio good? And of course conformation. I just got her and see her everyday so I don't notice all the changes. Plus when i's your baby you sometimes see only the good. I am not good at photos but any input would be helpful.. she is 15 hh and 8 yrs. Tomorrow 4-27-10. Thanks to all. If I can't get the photo to work I do have an album please visit. Thank you all..

    She's beautiful, muscle would help her out alot.

    What a cutie!
    The first thing that stands out to me are her feet - someone has trimmed them to be like a Thoroughbred racer's feet, which is not good. Talk to your farrier (or shop around for a farrier) that will bring the toe back and grow the heel out.
    She's a tad sickle-hocked. Is that her natural tail? If so I'm supremely jealous. Her shoulder is a bit small compared to her hindquarter, but it looks to have a nice angle. Unfortunately with the photo angles it's hard to discern much... standing her up square and taking a photo side-on would be the best to get a critique from.

    Other than her feet which look a lil long (easy fix) I think she lovely and will be a knock out with a lil more muscle on her xx

    She is a pretty thing but she needs muscle.

    Her heels are low and toes are long and she also looks puffy on the lower half of her legs, especially the RF. Coudl be from the strain of her hoof angle??

    I'd definitely get those feet fixed ASAP but other than that she looks fine. What are you going to be using her for? Is she registered? I'd love to know her breeding if she is. And I think the pawprints are really cute.

    She looks pretty decent over all...course these pics aren't 'the best' to judge from; a front, rear, and actual side shot with her head foward, would be extremely helpful.

    The thing that really jumped out at me was her feet; she is long in the toe and low in the heel. Because of this she really seems to stand under her self, probably to take some of the pressure off her toes.

    She could use a bit more weight and muscling through out.

    I love her tail Lol!

    I agree with everyone. Get her feet fixed, get her a topline, and you've got a **** purdy horse!
        04-26-2010, 09:10 PM
    Shes a cutie. Agreed on the feet :)
    I would love to see what she would look like being ridden. What do you want to do with her?
