    2 y/o APHA filly

    I know these pictures aren't ideal for critique but this girl isn't halter broke yet and she kept wanting to follow me and move around, and flies were bothering her. Could you tell me what you see, good and bad, from these pics? Please excuse her body condition, she is being given to me and needs some groceries and a visit from the farrier.

    Anyone? I feel like her pasterns are a bit on the long side. I want to use her for trails and would like to do some low-level dressage (non competitive). I believe she is from WP/EP/halter stock.
    I will try to get some better photos. She isnt at my house yet so I don't get to see her much.

    Well, she's awful cute! Lovely color. I don't think her pasterns look too long, and she's at an awkward growth stage, so she'll change. The only thing I don't like is her hind end; its a bit short from hip to pins. But she may be standing on an incline so therefore a bit distorted. She may be a bit over at the knees and a bit tied in behind, but few aren't at least a little of one or the other or both. Hard to tell from these pics.

    I'm sure she'll make a lovely dressage/trail mount for you.

    She is adorable! Not long pasterns, just a 2 year old form.

    I cannot see any noticeable faults. If she is being given to you, you lucked out!

    Thank you guys! I'm very excited about her. She is inquisitive and sweet. I introduced her to a halter yesterday and she did fabulously. I think she'll be a really great little girl, and I'm glad to know she doesn't have any big faults I'm missing. When she was offered to me (before I met her) I was skeptical but was quite pleasantly surprised when I went to see her.

    I really like the way she looks! Please post some pics once you've had her for a bit, I have a feeling, she'll just get better with age! Love her markings too!

    Thank you so much! I will definitely be posting lots more pictures once I get her home. I'm going out to see her again on Sunday so I'll try to get some then as well.

    She looks like a cute useable little filly, I don't think she has to bad of pasterns either, its probably just her gangly growth spurt. But better pics of her squared up would help a lot. I too have a 2 year old filly, she's also going through a weird growth spurt, so welcome to my boat LOL.

    She has been home for a while now and is settling in really well. Here's a pic from today. Sorry about the quality. I was out picking her pasture so all I had was my cell phone.
