Please critique Whimsy :)

Whimsy will be used for classical dressage,probably some jumping. She is reg. 1/2 Andalusian. She just turned 5. I am planning to breed her to a black PRE Andalusian stallion next year. Please critique her conformation for breeding/general crtitique. Be P.S...her right fore is slightly club footed,but the farrier is correcting it and it isn't a bad one. So please ignore that haha

her hooves look a tad akward to me.
like the back ones are really straight. and it looks like the front ones just look wierd.
it could also be the pictures. as he hooves are the same color as the sand.

Hmmm...this is the first day i got her. The people i got her from did more of a home shoeing job. My farrier fixed them and they look much better now. They do look kinda odd in these pics.

Body critiques anyone?

• Horses: 5're lucky I don't know where you live...she may just wind up in MY barn...tehehehehe

Conformation-wise, she actually appears a bit 'upright' in all of her feet...I would like to see current pics of her on a solid surface, to see if it was the farrier's work prior to you getting her. Due to her awkward hoof angles in these pics, it seems like she is pretty upright in her pasterns...she does have pretty short pasterns, though, which could make her a slightly more rough ride.

She moves really nice...seems like she drives nicely from the rear. She has a pretty nice neck, and her shoulder is decent. She's got a really kind appearance.
