My Yearling QH Fillies

Here are my two yearling fillies. They have the same sire. The chestnut, Zanna, is out of a half TB mare. The bay, Vexy, is out of a foundation bred QH mare. The pics were taken today so they are both getting fuzzy. Zanna is about 14 months and Vexy is about 15 months. Zanna is 13.3 today and Vexy is 13.2

I am aware that Vexy is straight through the hocks and they are both a bit rump high at the moment because they are growing babies. I would very much like to have more input on what everyone thinks.

Be brutal, I am a big girl and I need a good perspective on theirs flaws. I have intentions to show Zanna, the chestnut, in dressage and (considering how she hunts for things to jump while turned out) possibly horse trials or lower level eventing.

I guess I should have put it in the title that I was asking for a critique.

Posting this in the critique section lets us know what you want. ^_^

With only one shot of each filly, it's hard assess them. A picture of them square, of each side, front (chest to hoof) and back (with tail braided or held out of the way) would be best, but I can give it a shot.

The first filly's cannons are a bit long, but her shoulder angle is decent.She has a nice, short neck, but it doesn't tie into her body very well. Her forelegs look a bit off, but I can't decide what's bothering me about them.
I don't like the way the second filly's elbows tie into her body. Her shoulder angle is far from perfect, giving her forelegs an 'off' look. Her back is longer than I'd like to see in a foundation-bred foal.

Both are butt-high which is normal for a yearling.

It looks to me like they both inherited their sire's hind-end, as they're almost identicle.

All in all, I like the chestnut better than the brown. Her conformation is more correct and she looks to have better bone. Still, they have a while to grow. The brown might level out a bit.

I will try to get more pics of the chestnut to put up here. The more I look at her, the less I like the bay and the more I think she will spend most of her time as a trail mount and buddy for Zanna. I can try to groom her better so her outline is more visible and her legs cleaner, but honestly, I'm thinking that my best bet is to wait for the spring shed out and then try posting again. That will not only make her easier to see, it will give her time to grow up a little more too.

Thanks for your input. :)
