Paso Fino--in condition?

Hi--I've been working on getting my Paso Fino mare back into condition after her winter layoff. How does she look? I know her conformation isn't perfect, but we do gaming (poles, barrels, keyhole, etc.) and have our first show this weekend and since it's been so wet here lately, we haven't even been able to run the patterns as the equipment is outside (and it's not mine, so I can't bring it inside) in the outdoor arena. So we've been doing a lot of inside arena work.

Also, I think she's slightly pudgy...should she lose some weight? Right now she's on pasture during the day, a flake or two of hay at night, along with 1/2 scoop sweet feed, 1/3 scoop SafeChoice and her ration of Focus HF supplement. The sweet feed is part of her board, so I don't provide it.

Please note: I know her conformation faults, and am not looking for a true critique. I know she has a long back, ewe neck, and icky back legs. :) However, if you have something to add to the list besides those three things, you may feel free to comment. Thanks!

Sorry that the pics aren't very good.

Also, I will get a video of her lunging tomorrow. :)

Can't really tell much from the pictures. Her whole body seems arced and the photo is taken at the wrong angle and isn't level. :(

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. ~Thomas Edison
