Smile Overo Filly?

Okay, I took some better pictures and I had my sister help.

This is Aspen, she's about 1 1/2yo unregistered paint filly.

Conformation?

She's around 13.1 and 700lbs










She is still a baby so she doesnt like to stay still for too long :)

She has a steep angle to her shoulder, a bit sickle-hocked and appears to be roach-backed.
On the plus side, she has a good short back, decent front legs and a deep girth

I really don't see a roach back. As hairy as she is, that could just be some fluffy hair sticking up. Certainly not something I would notice in a photo anyway. If it is, it is pretty minor.

I also hate to pronounce a horse sickle hocked when I have read it is usually a result of something else going on in their body (like perhaps a pain stance or who-knows-what) but is not actually a conformation fault per say. I can't tell you exactly where I read that, but I think it might have been an article by Dr. Deb Bennet.

I actually really like her hindquarters. They look powerful from behind. And really, I like her overall build. If I were to fault her for anything it would be that she might be narrow in the chest. She also appears to toe out a bit in front, but nothing concerning. The hind pasterns might be a bit upright and the stifles straight. (Maybe that's back to the sickle hocked stance after all?)

I don't know. I think she's kind of an attractive baby. And the butt photo is very flattering. I mean it, she has a nice butt.

she quite a hairy little beastie :) she has a serious winter coat, I got her from north of cheyenne and she'd never had a blanket on before and no shelter. She took to a blanket really well though (i just need to keep on eye on the weather and use it short times so she doesn't over heat as she coat gets used to it)

These pictures were taken the 2nd day I had her and my sister 'big bad' gelding was off behind her, so she might have been standing odd because he was there. And I think she's also still in her 'awkward' years.

And she is only 1 1/2 so she didn't like standing for too long with out constant attention :)

I'll just photgraph her growth process. We also havent had her done by OUR farrier, so it could just be how her feet were done, like a week before I got her. As for the HQ, if she's anything like her sister, which I can already see coming out when she in the field, she's going to be a fast little heck raiser

I don't see a roach back, I see a weak loin but that could improve as she matures :)
