18 month old APHA (solid, breeding stock reg.) rescue filly, please crituque??

I rescued this filly in June of this year (2011), and am looking for some critique on her confirmation, color, size, etc. I understand that these are not the best pictures, I have yet to take any of her standing still from the front/back/sides, so I apologize. I will try to get some as soon as I can, perhaps follow up and "re-critique"?

She is 18 months old, registered as a solid breeding stock bay, she stands about 13.1hh currently, and weighs about 700-750lbs I am guessing?

If you guys need to know anything else, please just ask :)

P.S. I am starting to see that she may be developing club foot in her front hooves, I don't know if you can see it in any of these photos, but she is very upright and short with her steps, having a farrier come out as soon as he has an opening. What are you opinions/any information you have or know about this? Thanks!!

You really lucked out with this one. While she isn't perfect she has a nice hip and good straight legs. She seems pretty down hill now but as she grows it will work out.

She is just a doll. Believe it or not, she had only had about 30 days of human contact when I got ahold of her. She had been neglected by her original owner (the guy who bred for her), and he had sold her to the lady that I ended up getting her from. She just didn't have the time for her, and boy I tell you she was a handful. It took 2 months to get a different halter on her, she wouldn't let you touch behind her shoulders or she would double barrel backwards etc. I can practically lay atop her now, play with her, lead/lunge/desensitize, and more. I got her with papers, hay, halter/lunge etc for $300. She is going to make a killer mare :)

When I clicked the link you posted, the picture came up in a different window. Perhaps your system is just blocking the input? I am not sure, sorry about that though. Hope it fixes up, I value everyone's critique and opinions :)

And now all the pictures are showing up!
It'd be better able to tell if there were squared conformation shots, but she does appear to be a nice filly all around.
