Tell me what you think of my mare!! Pretty, Pretty please!

This is my very favorite horse. She was just currently bred to a movin to the music baby. She was in reining training.... I want to show her buckskin but want to know what you guys think of her confirmation. Thanks!!

I like her color. She seems very heavy on the forehand. Seems cow-hocked, and needs muscle.

Beautiful color! She's a bit heavy in the front end, and stands under a bit in the front. A bit too straight legged in the rear. Without actually seeing her move out, I couldn't tell if she was smooth or not, but her shoulder isn't too steep. Back is nice and short, and rump slopes well with the dock situated nicely. Deep heart girth and very pretty head, which ties nicely into her jowl and neck.

Anyway, overall she's not bad looking at all, and her color just adds to the looks! You could probably do local shows no problem, then see how she does and go from there... Good luck! Glad to see more buckskin/dun lovers out there!

She doesn't need it, but she would look much better, not saying she looks bad or anything. But her neck is rather long and skinny I would personally like to see that more muscular and in her top line.

Over all I like her, but here are the things I don't like,

-She stands under herself in the front
-She has small front legs
-Longish neck.

She has a very nice bum! ;) I lov her color and her head! I'm sure she will be a great little show mare.

What color is she registered as?

I think she looks like a Grullo but you guys are calling her bucksin..not sure

She is a grulla but grulla is registered in the American Buckskin Horse Registry. So are duns and red duns. So she is grulla but also registered buckskin.

She is cuteee. Very nice coloring.

Critique:
She seems cowhocked, I agree she stands under herself in the front. I think she could use more muscles in the shoulder & neck area. Neck is a bit long. She looks a bit downhill.

Very cute!

Ride more, worry less.

She sure is pretty and her color is gorgeous!
I agree with all the post above, except I don't think she looks downhill. To me she looks even.
