Gracie 2 1/2 years old

Not much of a stack but is it good enough for any input?

Re: Gracie 2 1/2 years old

GORGEOUS!!! She has really nice workingdog structure, Jen. Hewr coloring always takes my breath away-- and this photo taken in the shade is on a sunny day.. for some reason, overcast seems to bring out a sable's contrast amd pigmentation better. Gracie looks muscular and athletic now, she is truly coming into her own now Jen. What a beautiful girl! I love the way her legs hang (Grimm is east-west in front, slightly cow-hocked behind)... Gracie looks pretty straight fore and aft. I can see she has nice tight feet, too. In the full-on shot in your avatar, I can see her expression and head better-- she has a feminine "eye" to her, bright, intelligent-- but sweet. I will let the experts chime in... but I always, always LOVE Gracie pics!! Go, sprinkler-chasin' girlie!!

Re: Gracie 2 1/2 years old

Is she standing down hill?

Flat withers, a bit roached over the loin, though it could be how she is standing. Good angulation in the rear, but her front is VERY VERY straight. This will cause stress to her shoulder and joints over time if she does a lot of jumping. She also appears to stand out a bit on her left fore. She has a feminie head, but doesn't look too thrilled with the photo taking. LOL

Re: Gracie 2 1/2 years old

Down hill? Yes, perhaps slightly. No, she was quite annoyed with picture taking Saturday. Go over to the pictures section and check out the first shot in "Gracie's busy day" and you'll get the idea

What do you mean by "straight"? "roached"? Her front paws do go "east-west" slightly (I believe that is the term I've heard before).

Thanks!

Re: Gracie 2 1/2 years old

Roached means her topline goes upwards over the loin (the area between the ribs and the pelvis). Straight means not enough angulation. Too straight means that there will be less ability for the shoulder to absorb shock from jumping.

Yes, that is the right term, east-west).
