"i like her, she is put together nice, nice big hip, nice depth to her body. cute head. she is lovely."

I recived this comment about my mare, and i'm not quite sure what "nice depth to her body" means?, i feel really stupid asking this question because i feel like i learn it and i cannot remember!


thanks!

Ok depth to body... Hard to explain...
Shallow bodied:

(I understand its a TB and that sometimes they're more shallow bodied, and it's an old photo... but it's the most extreme example I could find so that it'd be easy to see)
Deep bodied:

(This horse doesn't have great conformation, and it's body depth doesn't look that great, but hopefully you get the point?)

It's kind of like how deep their ribs are made?

Hope that helped at all lol
