Critique 2 year old filly

Thought I would post a few pictures of my filly here to be critiqued, she is two years old and is double registered with AHA and Pinto. My plans for her are halter shows until she can be ridden, not sure what discipline we are going to train her for yet, we do just about everything so whatever she seams best at is the way we will go, I got her for free so feel free to critique as harshly as you want, it won’t hurt my feelings at all, but for being free I think she's pretty amazing! Also she's about 14.2H's

She's a little full of herself, isn't she? What a little spunkster! She sure is pretty. No critique here, but she is quite a looker =D

That she is! She was in a trailer accident just before I got her, she wasn't hurt bad but has been on stall rest for a few weeks, the video was from her first day out so she was having a good time.

On the very 1st pic her back part looks rather funny. Very butt-high I guess? But on other hand she's just 2, so it's hard to give any critique to youngster anyway.

She's very cute girl. Good luck with showing her!

I think it's the way she's standing - she's very "proper" in the front end, but standing camped out in the back which only looks good on Arabs/Half-Arabs if they're in proper stretched halter mode.

I think she's one heckuva looker. She's very solid while still being refined with beautiful lines. Hard to really judge her back end from how she's standing, and I think it's difficult to critique her because I want to call her on having a weak hind end, but she's decieveing me with her "maturity" on her front end - Shay-ls filly Eve did the EXACT same thing where she just looked funky at two because her front end looked adult and her back end looked like it belonged to a scrawny Arab. I have a feeling she's going to even out into something fantastic - Zierra did the awkward two year old thing as well! Most horses hit it at a year, but Arabs seem to find it around 2!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

Her hind end does look weak and her neck looks short. But, she's 2. She'll have a few more awkward looking stages before she settles and you can get a really good idea of her conformation.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I love her. The first pic is aweful because of the way she is standing. My 2 yr old boy does it too. Makes him look like he has a weaker hind end and no top line. But take a pic of him in any other pose and he looks chunky lol.


Arabs are slow to mature. i have seen 4 yr olds I would swear are yearlings in any other breed.

I think your new girl is going to be stunning when fully grown. Have fun with her.

Being that Arabs tend to mature "awkwardly" - I quite like this filly.

If I were being super fussy, I might say she could use a cleaner throatlach... and use a little more hip... but that's being extremely fussy.

Overall she's quite a little stunner!
