Conformation? (better pics)

I did have a hind and chest shot, but they were on another USB that isn't with me at the moment but I'll get them by tonight after work.

Tansy is my 4 year old Tennessee Walker/Quarter Horse mare. I've owned her for almost 2 years. From being a 200 lbs under weight untouched 2 year old into the pain in the butt mare I love today, she's grown quite a bit. Critique? I know she isn't pretty :P

He first strikes me as overall being a nice horse, but he has a long body. His neck also seems a tad short...I'm no expert though! Just trying this out!

First, congrats on getting her to proper weight, well done!
Personally I like her. Other than having a slightly short neck and rather long body, I think you've got a quite good horse there. Maybe a bit downhill, but most QH's are built that way so that's not really a fault. May I ask what you plan to do with her? :)

I'd also want to see those back and front shots. It's probably just the way she is standing, but there might be something a little off with her hind legs..

I see the short neck, but its just because it's not proportionate to her body. That's the QH. The body is the TWH (long).... I love her coloring!!! Back left leg is nice and straight down, the back right (just in this pic) looks slightly turned out- but it's probably the picture. I like that she has black hooves and not pink.

aww she is very pretty and i know you tell her that every time you see her :) the big thing for me is her neck. It is short but what do you plan to do with her? if you just want to keep her as a pleasure horse seems like that would be wonderful

Tansy is just my thing to spoil. Trail rides, camping on occasion, and just the simple ride around the property. She loves cow. Went to a cow clinic once and you could tell she was just in total bliss when she was chasing the cows. So what I think would be fun would be to do team penning every once in a while for fun but that's really it.

Sorry, her, not he. :)

Well, her conformation might not be perfect, as noted above, but she's still VERY PRETTY

Wow lovely looking horse! Just a tad long in the back imo :o)

your horse is pretty. she is a tad downhill (which is a fault) and may make her a bit rough. she may be a bit long, but when you look at TWH they are longer looking than say a bulldog style quarter horse. Have fun with her !
