A bit down hill, goose rumped, rough topline (try building it up;), and could use more muscles. She is very prettty though:p

I beg to differ about some of that :)

She has a fairly nice shoulder, and neck set. She is fairly downhill, but her back looks to be a nice length. She doesn't seem to have much bum behind the point of the hip, she kind of drops off, if that makes sense. Her tail seems to have a fairly low set, but if could just be the picture, with her tail blending in to the dark. (This contributes to the short bum look) She is fairly straight hocked, but not nearly as "posty" as some halter horses - this is a good thing. Her legs look clean and her pasterns have a good angle.
The underside of her neck is a little too developed for my taste, and working on a topline would really help that, to create a strong topline image. I do realize she is flexing her jaw slightly in this picture, which is accentuating that muscle, but her topline needs a little more development.
Her head is pretty but fairly plain, and not all too feminine, which is fine in my books, but some people prefer a more refined head.
All in all, she is a well put-together horse :)

She has a nice shoulder angle. She is slightly downhill. Her hip angle is a bit too open from the point of the hip to the stifle, which in turn makes her back legs just a bit straighter than they should be. Her front legs look good and clean Good short canons. Best I can tell in the dark, she has a nice head and good set to her eyes. Her neck seems a tiny bit cresty, but I would be willing to chalk that up to lighting. Her back is balanced nicely with the length of her neck and she has a nice long underline. Over all, she has nice tie ins at the wither, hip, neck and elbow, though just a touch fleshy in the throat latch for my taste. Over all a decently balanced mare.

I cant say as though she is necessarily downhill, as maybe she has more rock to her, but overall, with some muscle conditioning, I do not see anything confirmationaly incorrect. Structurally, she looks complete. I like the way she is put together. Her neck to barrel ratio appears correct. Theres many thing I could point out that I like in her confirmation, and not much I could see as a short side. I would like to see more topline and muscle weight put on her.

Morganshow11- I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say Junebug is disagreeing about the goose-rumped part. That mare is in NO way goose rumped. If she were goose rumped the line from her croup to the point of buttock would be much steeper and the dock of her tail would appear to be more inset. She would not have a nice smooth, rounded line going from her croup to her point of buttock.

I agree! I really like her a lot, but everything midwest paint said I agree on.
