➞ This is a beautifully proportioned mare, the best balanced of this class. Her body divides into equal thirds from front to back. She has an excellent topline, with a strong back, loin, and croup and a good tail set. She’s also adequately deep in her heartgirth for a very attractive picture. She should make an excellent performer.
Her feminine head has soft, expressive eyes, and her neck is the ideal length for her proportions. Her throatlatch could be a touch trimmer, but her neck ties in well to her shoulder, which is sloped nicely and sets her up to carry her head level, exactly where we’ll want it for performance.
She’s a good-footed mare, with strong, clean legs. Her knees are flat, and her front pasterns match the same angle as her shoulder for a smooth, reaching stride. Her hocks are slightly higher than ideal and show a bit more set (angle) than I’d like, but neither is a dramatic fault, and her hocks are well positioned underneath her for plenty of driving power.
