okay, i took some better pictures and i had my sister help.
this is Aspen, she's about 1 1/2yo unregistered paint filly.
she's around 13.1 and 700lbs
she is still a baby so she doesnt like to stay still for too long :)
She has a steep angle to her shoulder, a bit sickle-hocked and appears to be roach-backed.
On the plus side, she has a good short back, decent front legs and a deep girth
I really don't see a roach back. As hairy as she is, that could just be some fluffy hair sticking up. Certainly not something I would notice in a photo anyway. If it is, it is pretty minor.
I also hate to pronounce a horse sickle hocked when I have read it is usually a result of something else going on in their body (like perhaps a pain stance or who-knows-what) but is not actually a conformation fault per say. I can't tell you exactly where I read that, but I think it might have been an article by Dr. Deb Bennet.
I actually really like her hindquarters. They look powerful from behind. And really, I like her overall build. If I were to fault her for anything it would be that she might be narrow in the chest. She also appears to toe out a bit in front, but nothing concerning. The hind pasterns might be a bit upright and the stifles straight. (Maybe that's back to the sickle hocked stance after all?)
I don't know. I think she's kind of an attractive baby. And the butt photo is very flattering. I mean it, she has a nice butt. :D
these pictures were taken the 2nd day i had her and my sister 'big bad' gelding was off behind her, so she might have been standing odd because he was there. and i think she's also still in her 'awkward' years.
and she is only 1 1/2 so she didn't like standing for too long with out constant attention :)
i'll just photgraph her growth process. we also havent had her done by OUR farrier, so it could just be how her feet were done, like a week before i got her. as for the HQ, if she's anything like her sister, which i can already see coming out when she in the field, she's going to be a fast little heck raiser
I don't see a roach back, I see a weak loin but that could improve as she matures :)
