    Hi Kayella, quick question! I'm only asking this because I'm very new to conformation evaluating and I'm not trying to sass or tell you you're wrong, but Itd be great if you could clear this up for me. To me, I thought it looked like her neck tied in higher rather than lower? If you would, could you point out what tells you that her neck ties in lower? To me, a neck that ties in lower would be more like the second picture (when he was about 2 years) of the bay on page two. I can't remember posters name.. Thanks!

If you look back on all the youngins posted in this thread, they all have the same problem, but not to your girl's degree. Henny has it but it's a bit difficult to see with the coloring and braid. It just looks like the neck doesn't tie in to the withers well enough, but it should come around and look normal once they grow and fill out.

    Now see, I don't see a low neck/chest tie it at all. I actually see a really nice tie in, especially given where her withers are set further into her back. This is the perfect combination for a nice "break at the wither" when she starts under saddle. The neck....that topline will fill in once she is in a work program. The back length...might be just a smidge short, but I personally like a shorter back. The hind end...hmmm....gooserumped and I hope she levels out. Right now I don't see a ton of substance in her hip, she will always be gooserumped....but with work her hip will build up some to look not as shallow.

    I'll have to go back to look at the pics again to talk about her legs.

    I see a low neck tie-in in the future haha. Once she fills out, I think her neck may tie in a little lower than desired. You never know, though. I could be totally wrong. I think, right now, it looks like it ties in well. But seeing the way that her chest "pushes out" as it meets with her neck makes me think it ties in low. Or I could just be crazy LOL. I know the basics of conformation so anything I say should definitely be taken with a grain of salt. :)
