I think all the conformation points have been noted, so I'm just going to say that Tillie is gorgeous!! Love her colouring paired with the sturdy draftish build!

Draft and the heavier draft crosses tend to have hooves that flare from the weight if allowed to put extra growth on between trims. In that last pic with the wet feet her hooves appear to be taller than they probably actually are. They can tend to run under and elongate faster in my experience if they aren't kept after. We have always done touch up filing between to keep everything looking nice and flares from happening.

She's a beauty! I love a drafty hip and bum. And she has nice big feet. She should serve you very well for many years to come! Congratulations on becoming a horse owner!

No more just a part of being a draft x than flares are just a part of any other breed @Tiny . Only that sometimes farriers think they need 'bigger feet' & mistake flared hooves for 'far more better'... in any big horse. Yes, good farriery will rectify. Heavy horses do often have more sloping P3's in front & pointer shaped hinds but same principles apply in trimming to any horse.

Can't tell much from those pics tho. Op if u do want hoof specific critique, check out the link in my signature for what photos required & you can post in hoofcare section.

Thank you everyone! She is a beauty :) yes, she does have BIG feet that do tend to flare if she goes too long, which for her is about every 5 weeks. The farrier said she has very good feet and legs though so that a plus! She definitely is not that athletic which is fine with me because I just want to pleasure ride. She only recently has received formal dressage training and it doesn't seem to be her cup of tea, although she is a beautiful mover! I had an animal psychic talk to her and she said she just wants to have fun and does not want to compete and I want riding to be as enjoyable for her as it is for me. Good call on the weak back and pelvis issues. I have had a massuess working on her because she does have an out of whack pelvis. The massages have helped a lot! She is a great girl and I'm very lucky to have her :)

Yes a good deep massage will help tight muscles, but if she's 'out' that will also keep straining muscles & the rest. Have you considered a veterinary chiropractor to try to put her back 'in whack'?

I'm not sure where her name came from, I know very little about her unfortunately. I was told her original name was some type of flower but got changed somewhere along the way!

Hello and welcome! Tillie is indeed a "traffic stopper" as my granddad used to say about exceptionally beautiful horses:)

Ditto an equine chiro to look at her:)

I have a horse with an old fractured sacrum injury that causes him problems anytime his 22 yr old self gets to bucking up too much in the pasture. His equine chiro keeps him in alignment.

The chiro is a holistic vet who also does acupuncture and is a student of Chinese medicine, which has also come in handy a few times:)

Ditto on the hooves --- I wasn't sure if the flares were the camera playing tricks or they really are flared quite a bit:). Otherwise, Tillie looks perfect:)
