Flower, I'm sure you love her. And yes all of us started somewhere.
There is no shame to ask questions and no shame to not know something (especially at 11 yo). That's how you learn things - asking and educating yourself.
On those pics she looks like her back is sticking under the angle (heck, I'm always so bad at describing what I see :( ). Which also may be just bad pics/angle. But then you say she weights just 700 lbs and that doesn't sound quite right. That's why all of us were saying she needs more groceries. Now I want to add that it's hard to judge something off the Internet. Again personally I'd look into free choice hay (which is usually cheaper than alfalfa). Is she the only horse on property? If so, round bale probably wouldn't be a good idea.
