KY Mountain Filly - Almost 10 months

I've been trying to get some decent conformation shots of my filly for the purpose of selling/trading her. I've been working alone and she's hard for me to catch (part of the reason I'm selling - I'm not ready for one this young).

I have a thread going in the Horses for Sale section called "Practice Ad" or something to that effect, and I'm getting a lot of help there on having the right information for my sale ad, including tips for taking better pictures.

Obviously for her age she's going to look odd. She's also very fuzzy right now. Overall, I think she's a good prospect for pleasure riding/trails, and maybe some low level competition. I've been using the word "solid" to describe her because, at least to me, I don't see anything particularly wrong with her, but at the same time I don't think there's anything particularly spectacular about her build either. Just "solid."

I'd like to get opinions on if that's a fair assessment.
Can you tell me what you think of her?

Hopefully the attached photos go on in order, but if not, there's going to be one of her sire, her beside her dam, a younger picture of her, and one that I took today.

I own a KMHSA mare. She has better conformation, IMO, than her sire. HE is too lightly sprung in the rib cage. I like her back legs. Too often these gaited horses are bred with legs that are too straight. I don't see that in her. Haven't raised any foals, so I have no experience regarding what changes can be expected in her build. KMH's are body heavy horses, but EVERY breed needs a good bend above the hocks--looks like she must have gotten her legs from her dam.
Check out pictures of "Warren's Cindy", my mare, in MY HORSES. My mare is very comfortable, and you don't feel any motion between gaits. She is also docile. Those are the things people are looking for in Mountain Horses.

You have a beautiful horse!

I see what you mean on the hind legs.

she looks like a very sweet baby. Going thru growth spurts is always a bit awkward looking. I love the top picture horse. Her sire, yes? light and straight behind, but I like him for the breed he is. The baby does look to have a bit more depth to her which is nice. Go figure you bred to a paint, out of a lovely black with marking mare, and get a completely solid foal. Happened to me too a few years ago, Black arab crossed to a medicine hat saddlebred(almost pure white) and I get a muddy brown colt. He was really cute, was saving grace. Good luck with selling her, spring is a great time to do it.
