Critique please?

So I got my horse a little while ago and have had her in the stables where a few people have commented about her. They say she looks good and well put together. But I was just wondering if I could get a bit more of an 'in depth' critique of her. I'm new to owning a horse and noticing different things about them so to have someone point things about her helps me to notice them as well and know about it for future reference and stuff. She's supposedly a quarter horse appaloosa cross and has no papers.

She is really cute. Maybe a little thin? Hard to tell from the picture. But, she is so cute.

She's cute....
Pretty color...
For a really critical critique you honestly need better pictures of her.
She needs to be standing up, head up and feet firmly on the floor not in rest mode.
A picture from the front of her with neck to her hooves to see angles and align of her legs.
A picture from either side to see her back legs, front legs, back, underbelly, hip, sacroiliac joint{hip girdle}, angle of tail set and tail-bone....
A picture from the back looking forward. Braid the tail, or hold off to the side so the hind legs can be clearly seen along.
Of course a picture of a beautiful face with ears forward and alert....
A firm hard surface like you barn aisle is perfect for the horse to stand on and in cross-ties works really well.

Honestly, your horse is nice looking from what I can see.
She is a great weight, covered well but no obese.
As you own her, she gets more consistent work and muscle she will also change appearance some...
Remember that what anyone makes comment on is only their opinion....
This sort of thing is only a personal like or dislike of how you want your horse built...
Bottom line is this horse is yours, you are very attached to her and you liked the animal more than enough to become "owner" status....

My comment is....
ENJOY and WELCOME to horse-ownership.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

^Agree with the above. It's hard to critique a horse when they're not conformation shots (:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
