Confo critique 2yo filly

Last one...Babydoll, RR Okies Passiondoll. Haven't decided what to do with her yet, so just doing the basic groundwork and getting used to a saddle/bridle. Will probably be another trail horse for one of my girls, unless they decide to do more with her. Input appreciated! :)

Pretty nice horse. Hocks are nice and low and she has good hind leg angles although she may be over straight. Her croup slopes a bit steep and I would like a smoother coupling. Her front legs are very very light.. and lacking in bone. She has almost no forearm muscling.

Her neck is set nicely and is graceful coming off a very correct shoulder and nice, prominent withers.

She looks good for a 2 year old.. except those light front legs..

Nice filly. I am thinking that she will grow into her self as far as the steep croup and smallish legs. She is just a baby.

Carpe Diem!

Again, not a fan of the front end. Her pasterns are really long, which could potentially cause her to become over the knee as she gets older.
I'd like to see her neck tie into her chest a little lower.
She's got a big wither and a low set back (her topline may straighen and muscle out with age and training too) which might give you saddle fitting issues, at least for a bit.

I think she's got a great hind end! Love that hip, love the angles to her legs. Nice and low set hocks so she'll definitely be able to get catty for sure!
Nicely sloped shoulder, and I bet she'll be smooth to ride.
And she's got a gorgeous head.

I hate critiquing two year olds, though, because they change so much and the problems she has now (aside from her pasterns) could very well all disappear with age.

Yes, her front end has yet to catch up with the hind end. She is finally looking like a horse(lol) which is why I posted. I will post again when she is 3. I will tell you, she launches off that hind end when she's playing in the pastures. A spitfire to boot.
