Please critique Justice my 2yr Palomino Paint Filly

Hello!! Please critique Justice and tell me what you think. I bought her in April of this year and she just turned 2 on May 24 of this year. She is a Palomino Paint out of a Buckskin Sire and a Red/Sorrel Paint Dam. She is a big girl already but a friend said she could use weight. Uumm where? I am looking for her to be my all around horse and excel in barrels. Currently she is saddle broke, we do light riding, and she is going to the trainer at the beginning of the new year to learn the fundamentals. So for the most part she is being a baby, I keep her turned out in a huge arena, she loves to sun bathe, play, be loved, and is so willing and easy going. Oh she's dirty...sorry

Wow, she's extremely well filled out for a two year old! For the most part, I like her build - she has a very pleasing shape. Here's the things I notice:
* Like a lot of horses of her type, she's cow hocked.
* She is a little short in the neck.
* She has EXTREMELY upright shoulders and pasterns.
She could potentially grow out of all of those things.

I love how her neck is set on - nice and high, not in the middle of her chest like a lot of stock type horses. I love her coloring too, and she has a very pretty face and nice kind, intelligent eyes. :)

Hmm... have to disagree with clementine... She is a very mice build, well proportioned. She looks like she has a good neck I would just build more of a top-line by doing carrot stretches and back curls.
since you are just lightly riding her use this to build muscles and she will fill in more when she gets older. She looks powerful and well muscled behind! Good find on your part!

She is upright and short in the paster so I could be careful for things like ring bone, osselets, and splints. And she is a bit knock kneed so splints would be something to watch out for.

She is very filled out and not gangly for a 2 year old which is great! She is very pretty and

Oh and I forgot to say why I disagree with clementine... I don't think she is upright in the shoulders actually and not at all extremely upright in the shoulders.

Very pretty girl. I do not see many flaws with her, nothing stands right out.

Her tiny little princess toes make me smile though - I have one with the same petite little QH feet.

She's very nicely filled out for a 2 year old, I cannot wait for four year old pictures!

She has great color. Also, I don't think she "needs" weight. She's a young horse, and not expected to be as filled out as mature horses. She will build muscle with long slow workouts as you train her. She does have a straight shoulder and pasterns which probably will make her gait less smooth, and could lead to soundness issues. But she looks nice.
