She looks lovely to me.. Since she's a youngster she's still missing all the muscle that will make her really pretty. I'd guess she has some Quarter in her as she's slightly overbuilt, and most Quarters are. This makes her a bit less suitable for dressage (mainly high degrees of collection), but you said that was not your plan for her, so no biggie. The cow-hocked thing is so slight, that I don't think it will ever be a problem. It might just be a posture thing due to lack or increased tension (unlikely in a young one) of muscles that will completely disappear as you start working her. The way horses hold their body (and where they put their feet) doesn't necessarily have to be a conformation problem, unless they consistently show it as they progress through training (my horse has his front feet slightly turned to the inside, but it doesn't bother him or us in any way).
Listen to your horse and he might just return the favour!
