She's very cute! I love her color. She looks pretty balanced, her withers are a little lower than her hindquarters, but she's still a baby. Her pasterns are a little long, but that's not a terrible thing. What do you plan to do with her?

She is the first foal by my stallion (he was bred before I picked him up, and the owner sent me these photos).

I like her color a lot, especially mane and tail, but I don't like the way the white makes her throat-latch area look in the photo with her head turned toward the camera.

I am still not the best at conformation critiques, so I thought I would pool the forum :) In one photo, she seems a little back at the knee? I am not sure though?

Oh my god. She has very pretty color.

And that is all I can say with my lack of knowledge. ;D

Thanks for the feedback :)

Anything else stand out in these photos to anyone?

I am sorry I don't have better confo. pics...These are the only one's she sent me. She should be three by now...I should see if I can get the owner to send any updated photos (though she is a breeder and may no longer have her). :)

I love the color, she looks a little chunky to me.

Wow - very cute filly. She kind of has a short neck.
I really love her coloring. She's very attractive.

She's certainly a nice color. With such coat nothing else matters for lots of people so you certainly won't have problems selling her (if that's the plan). She looks compact and balanced too (although still little downhill, but I'm sure it'll disappear by 3 years old).
