I'm horrible with conformation, but I'll give it a go. Hope those that know confo better will correct me if I'm wrong.

First off, I love her markings and coloring!

As for confo: She looks to be butt high. (expected at her age) She seems to have a short neck and a steep shoulder. She lookes like she might be a bit straight in the hocks. Her knees also have grabbed my attention, but maybe it's just her markings! Of course I'm not sure if this could be her breeding and it's suppose to be the way she looks.

I think Percherons are gorgeous and I think you've got a beautiful girl! It will be fun watching her grow up. Hope you will post lots of photos of her.

I agree with the butt high thing. But it's hard to judge confo at this age because they have so much growing to do!

I Ride. I Win. I kick butt, like a girl! So get over it!

She's very cute, but it's so unfair to judge confo at this age. Post her again in about a year. :)

What a cutie! I wont critique her being a baby but it will be interesting to see her as an adult horse.

She's very cute and young so she's probably going to change quite a bit.

Butt high, post-legged, pretty upright pasterns, she looks a little over at the knee but I think that's just the markings. Her left hind looks a little swollen, is it just the markings?

I don't think her neck is short, I think she's just at a really odd awkward stage. Her body is broken into to "big areas" head/hind and "small" neck and forequarters. That makes me think that her imbalance is just a temporary "I'm 6 mnths old and look weird" thing.

Overall she's a real cutie. I love her colors and I to love Perchs. What are your plans with her?

I agree with everyone that it's generally too early to critique most things about her. I will agree with tigerstripes though. She's very upright and straight through her hind quarters. I love how she's all pieced together right now. She's adorable.
