I think she'll grow into that butt. She's going to be gorgeous!

From looking at her legs, I don't think she'll be overly tall but she should muscle out nicely. Yeah, she is a touch cow-hocked but no worse than most of the QHs that are being bred these days. The only thing that is bothering me is something with the right front fetlock/pastern looks way off like it is bigger than the left and her back hooves seem so small. But then again, the fetlock could be due to an illusion cause by her markings on the left and I am used to seeing the hooves on a draft cross foal so my perception may be a bit skewed. LOL. She looks like she could grow into a really nice filly.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ya, that right fron is bugging me, too. I think it's clubby - do you guys think trimming will help it?
This may sound soooo stupid, but what colour do you think she is? I've had different opinions. I've had one person say she was dunskin, one say dunalino, and someone elso say buckskin. She has slight barring in back of her front legs, and I won't know for sure about a dorsal till she sheds out. Her mane is pretty light to be straight buckskin though, isn't it? Geez, I know nothing about colours and genetics. I live in a world of bays and blacks with the racehorses!

I would say that she is a buckskin with maybe a "wild" type modifier that makes the black on her legs less pronounced like the "wild bays". I can't see the beginning of a dorsal stripe and usually, they will have some indication at this point so I don't think she is a dun.

She looks lovely.
I've got a cow hocked, pidgeon toed, mutton withered, picnik table backed 2 year old and I wouldn't change him because he'll never be bred anyway. He's good now and he'll be good at his job.
If a horse is good at his job then that and his welfare and well being are the main things that are important.

Unless you plan to breed from her then I wouldn't worry about the conformation side (unless you plan to show her in hand or something)
