At least her head isn't freakishly large, like my Aires' head is.

She looks young and you indicate she is. She is a bit light on bone and her neck seems to be set a bit low and is a bit ewe like.. or maybe it is just a bit of a pencil neck due to her youth. She has a nice shoulder and a good hind leg. Slightly lower hocks and knees would be nice. Her back is a bit long and the coupling is Thoroughbred and not the best.

However, she is young young young.. and as she fills out with maturity a lot of this (except the light bone and placement of hocks and knees) will change.

Her head is fine. She is a bit hammer headed but this is part of her neck conformation.

The head of the horse never bothered me. It was what was between the ears that counts..

Confo aside.. I actually like her head. She'll grow into it if you're worried.. especially as she gets more neck muscle and learns to carry herself.

And I bet she looks different come spring/summer!

There is nothing wrong with her head. It is just plain bay. Get some chalk and put a white stripe down her face and you will see what I mean.
