Shes pretty, but the thing that stands out to me, is her hind end. Looks abit high, or do you have her on uneven ground ?
Well.... It might not be permenant either, since she is only 2 1/2 and still growing

I find it so unfair to pick apart young horses.

She is slightly sickle hawked, her toes turn out front and back, she has a short back. There is something about her shoulder I'm just not digging either, anyone want to pin point what I'm seeing?

She has a pretty little head, great color, and hey she is two and half, she's got alot of growing to do.

She is butt high at the moment cause she is in a growth spurt. She is 15 at the hip and 14.3 at the wither.

I feel that the majority of 2 yr old horses will always be butt high. My 2 yr old gelding is DEF butt high, lol. I think she is gorgeous and for being 2 she has some nice hind quarters. Also alot of young QH will be sickle hocked or where their hind toes will point outwards because as they grow and their rear fills out it will bring the toes in and the hocks straight. Very difficult to explain but owning QH my whole life, all they young ones have always been like this confirmation wise till they were 3-5 yrs of age and they have filled out!! So I definitely wouldn't be worried about any of that.

All in all I think she looks like your typical young misproportioned QH. I would like to see her at age 4-5, she will be STUNNING!! Beautiful filly you have there.

She's cute! I think overall, she looks great. She seems in an awkward phase right now - her hind end is more mature than her front. I think that might be what FGR was noticing. Her shoulder is under developed, but I'm sure it will catch up soon. The angle doesn't match the hip angle either, but it might just be the pic. Looks like she'll be a usefull, sturdy girl!
