Critique Filly

This is a 2YO filly by a soon of Goodbar.
She's WP bred and will be an all around horse.

^Her being this under herself was my fault.

She is camped under behind in both photos and so I believe she stands that way.

Over all she is a nice package with a decent topling though I would like the point of her croup to be a little further forward and I would like a little more definition to her withers.

Her shoulder is a bit steep and her humerus from Point of shoulder to elbow lays a bit flat. She is back at the knee and tied in at the knee. I would like a bit more bone all the way found.

Her neck is on her shoulder correctly and she has a pretty head.

Of her faults the only one that would really concern me is the tied in and back at the knee.

I agree . She is pretty nice looking horse, porportions are lovely. But, I do see the back at the knee, though it isn't huge. Love her coloration.

The left front foot looks off too. Almost reminds me of a tiny bit of a club or its just the way its placed, too bad there isn't another photo. I would also try some more photos and see if she will stand with her back legs less under her. Sometimes when we take pics you try to square up by moving the front and they tend not to move the back.

I don't like to critique young horses.. A horse won't stop growing until 5-6 and until then she is going to go through all sorts of ugly and wonky stages before really settling into herself. It isn't really accurate to give a critique because she'll change in so many different ways and we could either be spot on or way off target. She's a pretty little mare, love her head.. Anything else is pretty much subject to change though.
