Would someone critique her? please

I have been goofing around online looking at horses, possibly to buy one. I came across one that I really like, but need some conformation crituques. I know these arent perfect conformation shots but they are the best that have been sent to me so far. She is a year old belgian by paint draft cross. What do you guys think of her?

Young horse, cute. Toes out front & back, short thick neck. Love her butt & hip and she has a feminine head.

First off, I'm confused. You said she was a Belgian, but then you said she was by a paint draft cross.... A Paint cross wouldn't be a Belgian, only a Belgian out of a Belgian is a Belgian.

That aside, I like what I see so far. She is only a year old and will be changing, but it looks like she is coming along nicely. I like her shoulder angle, and her legs looks good...not toed in or out. Possibly a tad knee back in front but perhaps with the right trims, she may grow a bit out of that, I don't know. Her back is a little short, but I am a fan of short backs so.... to me, she's great. I love her color.

It all depends on what you are planning on using her for. It's easier to critique when we know what the future plan is.

I guess I should have explained her breeding better. Her mom is a Belgian. Her dad is a paint/draft cross.

As for future use, she would be mostly used for trail rides. Honestly, Im not sure which direction she could actually go.

She sounds like she'd make a great trail horse, especially if she has a nice mind for it. Some horses tend to be spooky on trail, but if you keep her used to all sorts of things while growing up, then it won't be an issue later.
