Confo Critique
Alright this is Brandi she's an 8YO QH mare by Footworks Finest.
For some reason the pictures make her look long backed, I think its because she's a little butt high, oh and btw she's like 14-14.1hh so that might be part of it. Anyways have a go.

(oh yeah, I know her feet, especially the front don't look great. I took these pictures end of December and she had just come to the barn beginning of Nov. I think so our farrier has been working on fixing that :) )
Just so you can see her undersaddle too

These next ones she isn't standing perfectly but you can get the idea

So yeah thats her. Not fully in shape either, I should get new ones

With the second one, is the floor even? Because it looks like she's on a slope, with her front half lower than the back end. If the floor is even, then she's got a seriously high butt lol. That's what stands out to me most.
She's got a really pretty face though, I love her markings. Absolutely gorgeous.

The floor might actually be sloped down in the middle. I think it is.

She is a bit butt high though, but not more then an inch

she looks toed out a little.

StylishK 02-14-2009 04:13 PM

Front end or hind end??

appylover31803 02-14-2009 04:16 PM

it looks like she stands under herself in the back, just a little bit though.
She is gorgeous and I like her a lot!

What are your plans for her?

Thanks ahha :). Most people say she's built pretty much how you'd want a reining horse to be built. With a few flaws. However, even with her flaws she's going to make a great broodmare

Appy: She's my reining horse for next year, I'm hoping to keep her for a long time and eventually breed her. I'm in university and she's in my moms name (eventually she'll go in mine I'm sure, she's my horse I just can't afford to pay for her so she stays in my parents name haha) but anyways, I really really want to start a breeding program around her one day. But for now she's my show horse :) :) I agree she stands underself a bit, but I think its a good thing for stopping at least :)

She's very pretty. :D Yes, she is butt-high, and she has long upright pasterns. I can see why she's shod ... she has tiny hooves! She's very cute, you guys make a nice pair!

StylishK 02-14-2009 06:19 PM

Her feet need fixing too. Our farrier is working on that :)

She's more shod for reining, but I think she'll always need her fronts at least shoed because of her feet you're right.
