I think your horse looks good!
She looks nicely built and she looks good in both English and Western.
There is one shot where she is almost looking like she is in an extended cute!
What are you going to do with her?
The two of you look great together, like it was meant to be!

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

Seriously, you should've seen me...I was near tears! I thought it would grow back as a seperate piece like a toe or she'd be lame for life! Even after the farrier tried calming me I was so worried! Didn't do too much with her for a couple months after it cracked off other than desensatizing where I wanted her to stand still anyway! And thank you...I think she's gorgeous too but I thought that was more of a 'mamas love' scenario! LOL

"What are you going to do with her?"

I'm kinda undecided...I had dreams of jumping, but after seeing her trot, like you said, she's looking a little dressagy! She really reaches under herself and has good impulsion with very little effort on my part so we'll see. Might turn out that she excels at some western gymkhana...I do a little bit of everything so whatever she seems to enjoy best is ok by me!

i wouldn't worry too much about conformation . . .
you can have a horse with perfect conformation that you wont like
and horses with "bad" conformation can still make brilliant horses

for example, my warmblood is cow-hocked, has high withers and a scar across his nose which isn't ideal for showing but it's never affected him in any way and i still think he's beautiful.
he used to over-reach, but now he's working properly from behind he's stopped that - and i don't mind that he hasn't got perfect conformation because i dont enjoy showing (haha), he does what we both enjoy and ive never had any problems with him !

your filly is absolutely beautiful ! you haven't got anything to worry about at all - i hope you keep posting pictures of her as she grows !
