Maisie Mouse - Thoroughbred Ex racer mare
This is Maisie Mouse, my believe it or now almost 6 year old thoroughbred :)

just curious what people think about her as i don't really know anyone else with a thoroughbred so i'm unsure if she's in good weigh or a bit porky... also curious if anyone has any idea what she might be good at when she's sound again

she's currently on rest, due to having a sore back due to previous owners ill fitting saddle... :) admittedly she's been on rest for a LONNG time :3 but it has been winter and am planning on getting her back into work soon

She's about 15'3/16hh on the wither and about 16'3/17hh on the bum :3 she was 15'1 when i got her 9ish months ago...

pictures aren't brilliant... as she doesn't stand still unless eating, will try and get some more piccys :)

from the front (ish)

from the side

From behind

Right shoulder

Left shoulder

and of course the donkey picture ;)

Thanks :D

Definitely bum high
Sickle-hocked and cow-hocked in the back and there is something funky going on with her hind leg (or so it appears in the photo). It seems to be misshapen.
Shoulder angle is steep but she's got nice depth of girth and front legs seem alright.
Proper conformation shots with her standing square, head up, would be better to give a more accurate judgement, though.
