Exclamation Critque the filly I'm showing this year

I'm going to take this little filly in some showmanship and halter classes to get her some show experience this summer. I would really like honest opinions of both the good and bad qualities in her conformation. Thanks!

I wish I could be specific, but I don't have expereience judging half grown horses. She does, however, look to be a tidy horse and I think she's gonna be a realy looker.

I think she will turn into a nice mare:) I'm not real good at conformation for a young horse either.

Someone on the HF will be able to help I'm sure!

It is so hard to judge a baby. I've seen some stellar colts as weanlings and then see them later in life and wondered if it was really the same horse and on the flip side have also seen some ugly ducklings turn into swans.

From the pics, overall she looks pretty correct. I really like her neck, looks like she inherited that from her dam (she looks like a nice mare) I would absolutely haul her, regardless of win/lose, if the judge likes her that day or not, it is a great learning experience.

Meant to add that I love her markings, newest pic -she has a really nice head as well. She should turn into a pretty mare. Oh and I am super jealous of the mountains in the background of your pics....beautiful!
