Yearling APHA filly critique please and thank you?

This filly's a new addition to the family and we love her. VERY friendly and easy to work with.

She's currently going through the gawky yearling phase with her butt being way up in the air and the underside of her neck more developed then the top side since she's constantly peeking up over walls and fences to see what's going on on the other side.

We've started working with her on the ground under saddle and ground driving her and lunging her. We plan to start getting up on her in the fall.

Parents are both around 16.hh (I think the dam is 15.2 or 15.3) and neither one are built downhill. She's bred for pleasure, cow, and halter. Heavily foundation with just enough hints of new school hijinx to really make her pedigree pop. We haven't settled on a registered name for her but we're working on it LOL!

From what I can see she looks like a good filly. Legs look clean and shoulder seems good. Of course you can't really critique properly at this age, but I can definitely say she's a very pretty girl with a lovely face.

LOL I know what you mean. It's really hard to gauge 'em at this point but I couldn't help myself. She'll be showing halter this fall.

She's a pretty girl! I have nothing to critique right now because she's so young, but I think you'll have an excellant halter horse

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

She's definitely no career halter horse - and she might place, but depending on where you are, I don't think she'll win... but she does have a pleasure look to her. Maybe show her in longe line classes instead.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

At breed shows we plan on showing her LL. Local shows don't have LL classes though and we're starting off at a local circuit down the block from the barn. It's a pretty big circuit, but I'm confident. Plus it's 8$ a class for great experience.

She's very lovely! She has nice long legs. I bet her butt will be huge when she's older, lol. Good thing though! Gorgeous markings :)
Congratulations on such a pretty baby!

She's a real dish. But I have to give props to my working student for working so hard to display her wiggly butt for half-decent photos!
