    Appy x TBH Filly Critique

    Hi all.
    My eye fell on this filly. Original I was looking for an Appaloosa but this filly has had months of solid training from an American Lady here in South Africa. Her dam is an chilled OTTB / broodmare. Her sir is Storm Runner, imported from the US and son of Argentarius (sir: Dreamfinder).
    I'm looking for a sound, atletic horse to enjoy (no competitions) doing a mix of different disciplines but nothing in particular.

    Picture above: 9 months

    Picture above: 1year and 4 months

    Nice looking filly, though she doesn't appear to be fully grown yet so it's hard to give a 100% accurate judgement on her build.
    So far, she has a nice shoulder angle, her neck ties in a little high and is ewed but this may change as she grows.
    She does appear slightly buck-kneed in the fronts but nice and correct in the hindlegs.
    The back legs (the left one especially) are cow-hocked to a degree
    She is bumhigh at the moment but again, that may even out once she matures.

    She is very fined boned. And looks narrow in her base. Cowhocked. Looks tied in at the knee.

    Personally, I don't like her. She looks very fragile. And I don't like her hind legs. They are fined boned? High hocks, long pasterns, (on the front too). She has a steep shoulder too. Neck has an ewe to it.

    Yeah, I just don't like her.

    Thanks all for the response!
    The fine bones and long pasterns could be from the TBH side?

    I have a video of her trotting in hand (I don't know how to post it). She moves smooth but out of the elbows which makes her movement less animated and less ground covering. Is this is the way TB horses in general trot. Do TBH use their shoulders only in the canter and gallop?

    I find it very visual confusing that even though TBH have prominent high and long withers, the shoulder itself can be rather steep. It that right?

    Thank you

    Other than her being a bit base narrow, I think she's a nice looking yearling.

    She is a bit light of bone, or so it appears, in the front legs. But the canon bone is short, so that's good. Her shoulder is correct, in my thinking, neither too steep nor too laid back. Her hip is very nice. I do not see a real ewe to her neck. It's a matter of under muscling, I think.

    Look at her dam and sire, and any "brothers or sisters" for an idea of how she might look in a couple of years.
