Please critique Nova

Just wondering how her overall confirmation is. She's a 6 year old grade quarter horse who came to me about 150lbs underweight and pregnant. She's very easy to work with and train and has developed a lot of muscle in the last few months. Some of these pictures are current, but some are from throughout the summer. Thanks!!

BTW, never realized while looking through my pictures that I don't really have any good shots of her confirmation wise, so if I need to take some new ones, let me know.

From what I can tell, she has very nice legs! Is she even cow-hocked? I thought that was a requirement for QH's these days lol. I think her point of hip is a bit high, making her back jut up like that... or maybe from being pregnant, I have no clue, but over all, she is very nice looking!

Mliponoga, what are you doing with my dream horse!?!

I always wanted a darker grulla Quarter horse mare...and you have her!!!


Conformation wise, I think she looks pretty darn good. I maybe would like to see her neck a little longer and leaner, but otherwise I don't see anything glaringly wrong with her.

Btw, she is the ugliest horse I have ever seen. I can take her off your hands since you clearly don't want a horse like her.

She looks butt high/down hill which gives her a bit of a sway back appearance. Her neck is a little short for the rest of her body. From just the one picture is looks like she could use less weight and more muscle and toning. Would like to see additional pictures. Side, front and back.

Love the color, it's always been my Mom's fave color on a horse.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.
