Condo critique on foal

I know it is nearly impossible to get a decent critique on a baby, but still interested in what you all think. Sorry I only have the one picture.

I'm not a critique at best but I'll give it a shot (:

I like the babies nice short back, and the bum she has going on !

She has long pasterns, a short neck, and barely any wither though, But of course it could change drastically by the time she does mature out !
She's bum high also, but again that doesnt concern me the slightest due to her age.

What would you be looking at doing with her ?

Her back legs look wonky to me, like she stands under pretty bad...idk what the term is for it...her legs don't go straight down after her hocks, they angle in quite a bit.

Remember, it's a foal, so she could still be "unfolding"

I've been considering getting a foal as a halter prospect and I am still lacking in the conformation department. I was going to wait until next year after I have taken my conformation course, but this guy came up and his owners were really pushing him as a great halter prospect, and he was a steal. Figured it would be safer for me to check in with some people that knew a little more in that department before I fell head over heels for him.

Thanks a bunch guys!!

I would pass if I were you. It would be safer to look for some thing a little older.
