Could you do it anyway? I'm always looking to learn

Well, from what I can see, he looks a little "toes in" in the front from the picture where he's eating out of a bucket. His neck and bum are lacking...something about his neck is funny to me in the 3rd picture.

And we'll leave the rest to the pro's

I will come back....give me a min.

Based on pictures only (hard to judge a horse without seeing in person)...

She looks "toes in" on the front legs, and "toes out" in the back.

Her shoulder is a little steeper than I like to see, when you compare it to her hip.

I would like to see her hindquarters more rounded for a barrel horse, but it isn't too bad.

So as long as her toes in/out doesn't cause any problems down the road, she looks decent conformation-wise.

Yeah I noticed that... do you think that would case the legs to brush against each other more often than not or will it simply be tricky to walk in a straight line? (I'm really new to conformation.)

Nothing in her confo screams bad to me she is put together fairly well.
ordinary is the word I would use.
She could def use some weight in some areas and a more toned back end would help.
I do not think she is so much "toes in" or "toes out" as she has no heal, too long on the front and not very well shaped/balanced on all four. I think with a good visit from a skilled farrier and some heal growth it would fix the "toes in/toes out" look she seems to have.
I think her angles are fine, not a fan of her skinny long neck or her large head.
Just by what I see, she is not really built like I like my barrel horses to be nor do I think she would make a champ, but no reason she can't be run.

The first thing I couldn't help but notice in the first pic was that the saddle was up on the shoulder blades. The horse also appears rump high but non of the pics are good confo pics.
