Hey guys, this mare is a qh/swedish wb, around 10 yrs old. She's an interesting training case, and by her conformation I'd like to find out what other eyes see. Thanks a bunch!!

It's really hard to see from these pictures...but I'm not a huge fan of her tail set and the way her neck and shoulder tie in.

I find it very difficult if at all possible to give a critique with the photos posted. Tho I am not much for greys, she has neat coloring. It looks like she might have been off for a while as she really needs to build a top line and she has a belly

Are you wanting to purchase her?

I know, I need a good side shot of her. No, she's not necessarily for sale. She's got some body issues, bracing, etc. and I was curious to see if anyone can see things that we havent. She's a neck bracer, and has a good kink in her body. I'll try to get some more appropriate pictures. Thanks for the input!

Agreed with FehrGround, I don't like her tail's set up really high for my taste. Also she is definately built downhill unless the picture was taken at an angle or she's going downhill

Other than that, I can't tell anything else from the pictures. Try to get her squared up on level ground, and level camera shots to see if she actually is built downhill...also moving shots will help with that.

She's pretty though, I love her coloring/markings
