Okay. Critique my mare, Annie. The only information I will give you is that she is a grade paint mare. I want you all to guess her age and height and tell me if you think her conformation says she will stay sound. :)

Thank you and have fun guessing. :)

hmm....15 hands..no clue abput age. in the first pic, she look very butt high, in the second, she doesnt look as much. I wonder if i could say she is built downhill a bit?looks at all future critiquers*. Overall, I'd say she has very decent conformation, and is a very gorgeous girl! Somthing bugs me about her front legs/shoulders in the first and second pics though........

I'm no good at conformation, but I do know "no hoof no horse". That horse's feet are in bad need of a trim. Very long toes in front.

I would say she's atleast 15hh, 1000 lbs. She's pretty decently built over all; a bit toed out, especially behind, and she's a little downhill built.

I will guess that she's between 15-18 yrs old

These are old pics from spring. I am very well aware that she was in need of her feet being done. She is on a 6 week rotation and I can assure you that they were done shortly after that. :)

I will keep her age, height, soundness, etc a secret for a little while longer.

14.3-15 hands. She is a little down hill, and a little long through the back for my liking. She does look like she toes out on all fours. I don't see any huge reason for her to be lame.

(I totally have that halter XD Same colors)

Alrighty....


She's barely 14.1 hh
She's 17
And she's cowhocked and downhill. She doesn't really toe out in front, the angles of the pic are terrible. She wouln't stand still and I was the only one there.

I have had people on other forms tell me her front legs won't hold up, but apparently they have. She is a barrel horse, not worked hard but worked enough.

14 to 14.1 hands , approx 17 - 18 years old she looks splay footed just a bit (but its hard to tell because the pictures are side ways. , toes are longer than they should be. She is alittle high in the butt. Her back foot is turned out but at that stance i cannot say for sure if she is a bit cow hocked. again its hard to tell but is that a crack in her front hooves? its shiney and they look like clear hoof polish on them.. so not sure if its **** or if they are both split. She has a kind eye and looks tired in the picture..

I had put HoofFlex on them. And she has a tiny crack that is only superficial and has had it since I have known her(ten years). It does not bother her.

No absolutely not. Just clearing up some things you said just to make it clear that she in fact is very well taken care of. And yes you were close. She's 14.1 and 17 this year. She gets very bored, very fast, hence the tired look. I think I took a gazillion pics that day. She wasn't very happy with me. :)

I would have guessed about 15hh, and about 10yrs old. I guess I wasn't too far off lol. I think she's cute!
