Quick question about pasterns
 
If 0 is extremely posty, 50 is perfect, and 100 is extremely slopey, what are hers?

I would guage her right around 45. Nothing bad, just seem a touch upright.

Hm, her back pasterns don't seem to match her fronts! I'd put her fronts at 40, and her backs at 45.

Well he backs don't match her front because her shoeing is not good... they seemed to cut off too much heel but not enough toe...

but other than that they look a bit short so maybe a 35-40 if 50 was perfect and than maybe a 40-45 if the shoeing/trimming changed.

Very nice looking horse by the way! Love the black coat and blue eye!!!
