    Critique my filly please!

    This is Eve, she's a 2 year old Clydesdale/Thoroughbred filly, roughly 15.2hh right now. I know she has alot of growing left to do but how does she look so far? (These pics are from this past spring)

    And a short video from a couple weeks ago - we're just working on voice commands and accepting tack, she's doing awesome!

    So, what do you think? Thanks!

    I want that horse! I love the Clyde/mixes. People don't see them as saddle horses? Hello from a Clyde fan! *waves* You have my dream horse right there!

    Thank you! I feel the exact same way...she really is my dream horse! I actually threw together a video of some of the pictures throughout our year together so far...I'm pretty sure I posted it somewhere before but since it's a thread about her anyway...

    I'm hoping the TB in her will smooth out her gaits a little! She doesn't look too choppy so far...we'll see!

    The muscles look pretty much in balance but the shoulder muscles could be a little more in line

    Thanks I think muscle will come with time, as long as her frame's fairly balanced. The only glaring flaw I've found with her is she's cow hocked. I think that's the term...her hind hooves point away from each other a bit. I hoping she'll grow out of it, but probably not fully. Not sure as to if that'll restrict her movement much though?

    That was the sweetest video ever! What a great horse and it looks like your doing all the right stuff with her...
    I love the music. Can't remember the singers name but would love to know so I can get the CD...
    Keep up the good work and post more pics when you can..

    She is gorgeous!! Don't worry about the cow-hocks, she comes by them naturally. That is generally a desirable trait in draft horses as many people believe it makes it easier for them to pull heavy loads. Her trot looks incredibly smooth (even drafts can travel smooth ;p).

    What happened to her poor foot? {:(

    I actually took new conformation shots of my girl today...but I can't share them yet! I have a bunch of videos uploading so that'll have to wait! As for the desireable trait...I don't think I'll end up teaching her to pull a wagon...I've never driven a horse before let alone TEACH one to drive so that's a little out of my league...but how would that conformation trait affect her for riding?

    As for her foot...her feet wqere HORRIBLE when I first bought her and she was darn near wild when I brought her home so...after months of working with her feet and legs I FINALLY got a first trim on her and right after some ice got jammed in the corner and started a the time I realised what happened, it cracked off right up to the cornet band. I had the farrier out the next day to assess what she had done and he told me it would grow back sound...and it has! Fully functional now and I have her on a hoof suppliment so all's well there! BUT, trying to teach a yearling to hold still while I wrap their foot in a diaper is no easy feat...

    OK, done uploading! First one I tried squaring her up...she almost never put her back feet together...brat!

    After working with her she squared up on her own LOL

    Front legs

    Back legs

    And a head shot just because it's cute!

    She is definitely beautiful. Her cow-hocks are not bad enough to cause any issues under saddle. I have seen tons of QH that had them worse. GOD, she is gorgeous.

    I am so glad that she healed up and is sound, I would freak if something like that happened to one of mine. ;p
