Please Critique Sienna For Me

I read that critiquing thread for a couple pages and got hopelessly lost. I know not everyone will have the same opinion on everything about Sienna which is ok, I just want a general idea. I'm thinking of trying her at barrels in late summer, way to hot to ride right now here. Oh and I'm talking gymkhanas, not pro barrels. I've always thought Sienna would be good at some kind of western eventing because of her low center of gravity. So I'd like to try it for fun, and to give her a job and challenge. Thanks folks, just shout it out, don't worry about hurting my feelings if this is too short and that's to long or whatever. Cheryl

Her feet are loong. When is the last time she saw a farrier?

She gets a barefoot trim every two months. This was less than a month after I got her. I have no idea when she'd seen a farrier before but she saw one within a month of me having her.
Do you have anything else about her you can offer? Thanks, Cheryl

She is very well put together.

She looks to be camped out behind, but she could just be standing like that because of her feet. Nice angles. Her pasterns look a tad short. I swear, she looks exactly like my aunt's National Show Horse, Southern Grace:

This was the month after I got her

Where I was letting her get used to a fly mask because she was so head-shy. You can see her feet have been trimmed. Same rail, later picture. I choose those because they showed what that critique thread seemed to measure, and angle, and do percentages on, LOL.

OMG Equiniphile, if you didn't know where Southern Grace was and I didn't know where Sienna was, I'd think one had been stolen, LOL. The even have the same 'head set' or what ever you want to call it, but that 'forward look' that Sienna gets sometimes that's like, 'you don't REALLY think I'm going to do that do you?' Attitude I guess, I've always called it big personality in a small package. Not just because you compared them, but Southern Grace is gorgeous.

Crazy how similar they look. Not the best picture, but it shows her from the side:

This is her first day outside after I got her

She's not all shined up and polished like she is now, well I mean she's so shiny and dappled in the summer and this was only I think, maybe the third day I had her?I had spent all three days mostly just hanging out with her and letting her know I wasn't going to hurt her. A little black and brown shoe polish and she could go in the arena for your Aunt if Southern Grace was injured, LOL. Well except for the fact she wouldn't have a clue what to do after she got there, ROFL

LOLOL, yes they are. I'm afraid I'll have to keep your kind comments from my little diva, she's spoiled enough as it is.
How tall is Southern Grace? Sienna is 15.1
