Default Conformation/Structure Critque?

Anyone care to give it a go? This is my dog that I brought in after my friend could no longer keep up with her energy needs [she is actual low drive for a Border Collie ]. Anywho, there has been some concern over her weak structure, especially in her hind end, particularly the hocks. Anyone care to give it a go? I always appreciate input. She is in training for Flyball at the moment.

It's hard to judge by these photos, potentially a wee bit cow hocked and slightly flat feet but thats all I see.

For flyball shoulders a big deal and I can't see them well here.

She appears cow hocked, as a lot of border collies are. I don't really know if I can comment on the rest of her structure other than to say she's a very good looking dog!

I agree with the others on the cow hocked and echo Shai's question of how old she is?

Also, absolutely stunning dog. Eventually I'm going to be worn down and become a fan of tri merles kicking and screaming the whole way if I keep getting shown gorgeous dogs like yours

And another question -- is the first picture is she standing naturally or was she hand-stacked?
