Critique this filly please!

I am hopeless at looking at foal/young horse conformation and judging how they will mature. This filly is for sale and I have liked her for a while, but my next purchase is going to be as high quality and breeding as I can afford, looking to be a foundation mare for a breeding operation down the road, so I really don't want to accept anything less than great.

Would be used for showing and campdrafting (working cattle).

How old is she in those shots?

I don't much like where her neck ties in. She could use more slope to her shoulder, and the angle at the point is almost acute. Legs look okay, croup is set back pretty far.

Unless she's got a really good personality and is cowy, I'd forget her based on how she looks now.

She is nice. There is nothing that I can see from those photos that says she cant do what you want. All horses have their faults. Shalom

I think she is only just a yearling in the older shots.
