Confo Critique for appy mare :)

So this little mare does NOT belong to me. She does belong to another member here and I have her permission to start this thread.
Dreamer (mare pictured) is about 3 years old, and is obviously an appy :) She was born and raised here on Oahu and has recently had about 10 rides on her since November, I believe. She is super smart and sweet. She's learning very fast and has a good work ethic. So now onto her critique!
I should also add that she's at the end stages of shedding out. But she still has winter hair on her barrel, crest of her neck and A LOT of fuzz on her lower legs. Oh, and sporadic patches throughout her body ;)

Personally, I think she's the cutest thing EVER. I may or may not be biased...

I really like her. I'm no pro, but very little stands out to me as being problematic. She may be just a smidge downhill, but given her age I think there's still time for her to even out. Also, her neck appears a little short and undermuscled, but the muscling may develop as she continues to fill out and is in correct work.

Overall, she's definitely a horse I wouldn't mind having in my pasture!! Is she registered?

Don't have much time- Sorry!

I don't care much for her head or neck, but her body looks well proportioned for her age. Non-conformation wise, she's as cute as a bug!

She is very cute, for sure. it's kind of unfair to be too critical now, while she is not yet grown. but, her front canons are not as short as I'd like to see them, and her knees are a bit small. her shoulder is kind of upright but looks to be fairly powerful. Hip angles are good.

She is very correct, and should even out in the coming year. I prefer more prominent withers, but hers ae not a "fault".

Her conformation lends itself to endurance...
