Please critique Zefra (SV show coming up)

Just looking for some advice on both her structure and my stacking. We have an SV show coming up in a few months that we are trying to get ready for.

11 month old female - intact
24" at the withers, 66lbs

I know her back foot, closest to the camera needs to be turned in. I set her up for these and think I kinda screwed them up a bit. She is also kinda wet in these as they just got done swimming in the river.

Thanks a bunch!



















And just for fun, a few of her working.

Carmen, I was told that because she was so compact that I should try to "stretch" her out a bit more... how far should I be moving her leg back?

If you want her to look more stretched, don't put her left rear leg under her so far. That makes her look too bunched.

That's a great idea.. never thought of that.

Liz, maybe you should work with the leg under the knee and keep the other one fairly hock-leveled?

Do you think she NEEDS to look/be more stretched? I am always told she is very compact, which she is, but not sure how I should stack her?

Stark is very looooooong so I am always trying for the opposite.

I would position her like this


Move her front legs a little farther back as well as placing that rear leg farthest from the camera farther back where the red line shows.
