Appaloosa Mare, just turned 4- Critique!
Please critique Velvet, she's my registered Appaloosa mare, and 3-25 was her fourth birthday!! :)
(A little history- I've known her since she was born. Now she's barely 4 and I ride her on the beach, in traffic, and take customers on trail rides with her. I knew her Dam and Sire, (still have dam) and she's 16hh and still growing.
Oh, sry for all the little comments on the picture, I got tablet happy:)
I love her color :!:
omg I love her color also. She's so pretty
Her neck is awfully thick, and she appears to be pigeon chested...but other than that she looks great!!!
She's a cutie!!
what a gorgeous app! Her coloring is very unique!
The only thing i see to be a littl off, is that her front head looks heavier than her hind end. But she just turned 4, so things can change
quick tip for her little appy tail. Get some MTG or a good conditioner and put it in her tail. loosely braid it, fold it up into itself and then vetwrap it. AKPaintlover told me about this and i've been doing it with my app for a couple months now and her tail got longer and thicker!
Happy Belated Birthday Velvet!!
I love her neck, I can't stand scrawny necks, and hers isn't thick in width, but just up and down.
I absolutely L-O-V-E her build and color!!! amazing color, you are so lucky to have her look that nice at only 4! I wish all horses were like that ha ha ha :D
Hey is she registered she is really good looking and looks a lot like the old original appy line i use to be in to the old style apps till they started crossing QT and TBs in to the line to get the slick lines and tall horses but i love the neck and the color
Has a very straight neck. Goose rump. The Point of croup and the hip bone look odd to me. She is deffinetly heavier on the front end then the back. Meaning she will move off the forehand rather then the hind. Which isn't all bad if your not showing :wink: Has a cock-throttled neck. Meaning where the head meets the neck is very abrupt, too abrupt, forming a right angle instead of a curve. Which tends to constrict the windpipe. Also can cause compression of the larynx, when a horse is galloping it hinders the ability to breathe and hence its speed. It restricts its airflow. Looks like she has un-even hamms. Very pretty color
