    I don't critique youngsters because they are growing everyday =]
    So there is always going to be a change.

    But however very cute filly.

    Although its hard with youngens, she looks nice :) very plump :)

    Kitten_val - my guess is not true black. You can see touches of brown in a few of the pics :)

    She may still change the color, can't she? I heard they do till 2 years old or so. Mine was bay and changed to bay roan on sides after 2nd winter. Very weird...

    Thanks everyone... I know its hard to critique a young horse... I have a few questions if someone could answer them..

    She seems a bit downhill in the front.. I'm just curious if she could grow out of that? I thought she might have grown out of it a bit already, but she still seems uneven to me.

    I also noticed that she stands funny with her back hooves... the kinda point slightly outword.. I'm not sure if it has a term associated with it.. but its the opposite of pigeon toed! Would that have any negitive effects later on?

    And I'm not sure what she'll shed out as in the spring! I'm excited to see tho... I think she'll be black, but I noticed a bit of brown around her eyes so maybe dark dark brown? I'm hoping for black, but I'd love her either way! She's three different colors in this picture! LOL so who knows



    Thanks again for the kind words :)

    Many youngsters are slightly toed out, she may grow out of that, she may not. If she seems downhill, think back to the different stages of her growth...its actually a little easier to guess at when they are very young, before they start having growth spurts. Her neck is a little short for my taste but she's a really cute filly.

    Thanks so much, I really appreciate your feedback :)

    When she was really young I thought she was slightly downhill... :( and I agree her neck is kinda short... LOL at the rate I'm goin she'll look hilarious when she's older. I predict she'll have a huge rump too. Only time will tell I suppose!

    Lots of them downhill and then grow out of it. I think she is built nicely and will be a good riding horse when grow.
