    Haven't posted Fancy for a critique in years! But today we did a special event and thought this snapshot would work?

    Fancy is a nearly 20 year old 15.3 hd Morgan mare, who I've had since she was 4 :)

    She's been barefoot and never lame (save for an abcess a couple times) Not bad for 16 years together. We do everything from Horsecamping, to Hunter Paces and Eventing, but mostly ride just for fun.

    Conformation Critiques welcome! 201810136690103956246714029.jpg

    I'm not very good at critiques, so I will leave that for the others. I just adore your mare so much and really enjoy seeing your pictures on fb. She's so lovely!!

    I love ms fancy pants and miss seeing you guys around on here...this isn't a good photo because I can't see her beautiful chocolate coat or her precious face. I think the fact she's 20ish and still rocking it speaks for itself about her conformation. She's built to last, like a tank...just like my Bluemoon. You can't ask for much more than that and a mare too !

    Read the sticky. Nice pic, but not for critiquing off of, it's not.

    is it just because the lighting is bad? I thought it was a good side view conformation shot. But I do understand the quality of the photo is bad due to all the Shadows. Or is it because I didn't post a front view and a hind View? Here's the picture with the lighting change so you can see her better?

    Ah! Fancy!! I've missed y'all! It sounds like she's doing very well :)

    She's got a lovely head, good length and shape to her neck (if a bit coarse through the throatlatch, but that might be the start of a winter coat?), and a nicely sloped shoulder. A little long in the back, but with a top line looking like that at 20, it's clearly strong, so I don't think that's an issue. Nice hip, flatter croup (but that's the breed) and good bone to clean legs. Her hocks are on the higher side, but have a nice angle/set to them. Looks very much a Morgan, which I love.

    And her weight looks awesome! And she is stunning, always :loveflag:

    Thanks for the Fancy Love!

    And GPP, thanks for the critique! She has a super fuzzy winter coat right now, this photo snapped yesterday and yes, at 20, I'm happy with her topline! :)

    For tons of Fancy pics, anyone can find me on FB....I think I'm the only "Elaine Hanscom" on it :)

    So one thing I can say from this picture, is she looks so much..uhm... leaner (please dont be mad I know shes always been a chunk!!) But I mean it, I think she looks really great
