Critique on a potential cutting/cow horse
This horse is a 5 y/o green broke paint, but I am looking for something to turn into a cow horse for me. What do you think from these pictures? I will have pictures of another horse later this evening.

Also she appears to be butt high in the first picture but is standing on unlevel ground

We need pictures of her standing square from the side to give you an accurate critique. The one thing I see that sticks out to me is a lot of thickness at the base of her neck, which might make balancing over tight turns difficult.

Might be the angle but looks narrow in the chest. Could impact the ability to sweep and stay in front of the cow.

Looks like the neck ties in a little low into the chest, gives her a thick looking neck. Her shoulder angle looks steeper than her hip angle. And I can't really tell, but she looks a little low in the heels in the front.

I got the best pictures I could for the moment, lets just say she was very distracted and I was lucky I got what I got haha. I will get better confo pics next time I'm over there and have someone to hold her

I don't see a phenomenal cutting horse, but I see a decent enough all-arounder.
