Haven't got anything to add to the critique I pretty much agree with what the others have already said. As for the stacking one trick my mentor taught me with small dogs (and I know this sounds a little rude) is slide your hand under his rear end from behind and lift him off the table just enough so his legs dangle then lower him back down and he should be in a comfortable natural stack, if he can't hold it even from there you might want to try a rubber car mat under him to give him something to grip.

Also the shorter the nails the better on flatter feet, and walking on gravel helps train their feet to tighten up a bit... To an extent.

On Raven his front legs don't look like pillars they start to tapper at the feet particularly on the back of the legs. Also on the show side the upper part of the leg where the chest meets could be tightened a lil.. On the non show side not sure if it's the way he's stacked but there isn't as much distinction from the chest and front leg as there is on he show side. The last thing that sticks out to me is .. And sometimes I suck at explaining this stuff lol.. But on you spray up, on his back he has a hump.. I would scissor off a little in a straighter line to blend a little nicer with the neck hair itself. Can't critique the rear legs accurately since he doesn't like to stack lol. Otherwise nice! Loved how you scissored his rear.

. I used to do Trev's nails almost daily and run him a lot...I really need to get back to it, especially the nails. They are short, but not short enough.

Thanks for the critique! I'm not sure if Ravens leg is actually tapered or if they got smashed during stacking...I will be careful next time though.

Ok I was wondering about the chest, wether to tighten more or not. I will do that next time. And the whole "blending the mane" thing had me confused as well...I wasn't sure wether I should take off that hump, or wait for that hair to grow in. I've had several other people tell me to take it off as well, so I will next time.

Thanks everyone for critiquing me, I can often pick things out myself but its always good to hear it confirmed and sometimes y'all see things I don't.

Thanks Anntig for the stacking advice...I will try that. I think he's just lazy, he wants me to hold him up haha.

Your welcome!! I like taking pictures of my grooms as they look different than what i see while I'm working. Or sometimes I see something is off but I can't tell how to fix it, at least up close. Right now Fergie is kinda in a halfway place.. I'm growing coat on her and she has grown out quite a bit from a continental. I whacked off her rosettes and whittled away at her poms as the hair on her legs have grown in.. Of course she looks like a male chimp running thru the yard now rofl. I can't decide if I want to put her in a Scandinavian or try my hand at an English saddle. Hubby hates the ES and the Scandinavia well looks "good" to everyone else so long as you keep up the FFF. I may trim her tighter tomorrow..

I wouldnt worry about the blending the mane until next time you have to spray up. It's hard to trim some of that long hair! You spend all that time growing and pampering that hair that you second guess yourself about cutting it. But the one thing that I learned is if it's outside your line mow it down lol. It really isn't much you have to trim there either, and it will all change the next time around too lol.

Here is Fergie's last pro picture and it looked a lot better on the table lol up close. Looks like rosettes and front poms needed work lolA couple recent grooms-imageuploadedbypg-free1357804245.832468.jpg

I think they all look terrific and no one but a grooming judge would notice the things you are talking about. I will admit to being sad that Trevors ears are gone- sigh. His ears were fabulous, but it grows. It always grows.
