QH Filly Conformation

April is 2 and 13 hands she measures to be about 14-14.1. She will be a trail horse. Maybe (far far far) down the road a local barrel horse, just fun shows. If she's built for it. She is thicker then she looks in the pics. She go's threw phases were she looks awesome then thins out a little. I'm thinking because she's young and growing. She is on good quality hay (8.00 a bale) and gets grain 4 days a week. I had to cut back on grain because I was going threw 50lbs in 2-3 days. She wears a saddle like a champ! Never moves just stands their! I walk her around the paddock about 3 times then take it off. Does not bother her a bit. She is just a very sweet, kind little filly!! Not sure if these pics are good enough. Please excuse the mud, went from 20 to 50 out!

She looks over at the knee, thick neck, small hindquarters, and a coarse head.

If you feed higher quality grain, you can give less and it will last longer. Like feeding a scoop and a half of sweet feed versus feeding only a quarter scoop of a high quality grain.

I do feed a good quality grain. But I have 5 donkeys, 4 mini horses, 2 Percheron and April. Grain go's fast!

This is my filly. Mystiq Grand Finale aka Finale. She goes through stages where I will look at her and she looks thinner then before. It is because of the growth stages. I up her grain when I notice her going through a growth spurt. You want them on the leaner side when they are young anyways it has been proven that leaner babies are all around healthier when the grow up. Plus it's good for their joints not to have all that weight on them. My baby also has 48 acres to graze on. I usually only feed her not quite a scoop of feed morning and night, but when I notice her getting to lean I up it to a scoop morning and night. We also feed beet pulp. You have a nice baby there.

Well these are the things I see....

-Short Back
-Her pasterns seem long
-I'm not sure if its just me but her back feet kinda sorta looked clubbed. Not sure if that's the angle or if that's just me.
-Small/weak hind end
-Short and thick neck

She looks like a doll! I like her, haha.

Green Broke
Long coupling, weak rear end, steep shoulder, low point of shoulder, probably camped under behind and low neck set. Adequate bone. Nice low hocks.

Needs maturity.

The price of hay does not guarantee quality. The analysis of the hay tells its quality.

She was a year old in that picture. Now she is 2. I really should take some updated pictures of her. Yea, that is just the baby going through the growth spurts. Lol. Mine will look pudgy one week then thin the next, so I will up her feed then she gets fat so I have to cut her feed. LOL
