    Critique my fillys Conformation

    Can you give your opinions on if she is well built and has good conformation. I will put more pics up later as I will take them today. These pics were taken 1-2 months ago.

    That picture's not the best for critique but from what I think I can see she appears to have a decent shoulder on her
    Neck set is not bad and a pretty face
    Front legs look good as well, though there is something about them... probably just the way she is standing but they appear to be set quite forward on her frame...
    Again, probably the ground but she's a little bum high there
    Back is a good length
    Nice rounded hindquarters
    Hard to judge the back legs, but nothing terrible is jumping out at me

    She looks a little buck kneed but apart from that I can't tell much. From what I can see she looks pretty good

    She is a bit buck knee'd (cosmetic issue, NOT a soundness issue). She looks to have some Thoroughbred in her from the way her knees look (large and flat) her shoulder and her neck set. She may be a really good horse.. but better photos would be beneficial to support that.

    she has a high hip because she is only a yearling, not matured yet, it was not even ground there too. When I look at her, front legs are straight and good, but the back legs look like they point out a little bit, but that could change when the farrier does her feet.

    Overall, she is not done maturing.

    Back toes MUST point out a little and must NOT point straight ahead. The hind leg is a spiral (that is where the power comes from so it is constructed much like a spring). A straight hind leg actually must toe out a bit so the stifle can clear the belly.

    Show me a horse that has toes pointed straight ahead and I will (usually) show you a horse that is bow legged behind and does not move well (ahhh.. halter horse world).

    Trim your horse's hind feet level and let her grow and develop naturally. She looks good.. don't mess with that!
