What a cute girl you have. A very nice little horse and has tons of potential.
At this point, she is very young and I wouldn't worry a lot about the forehand or not. I mean of course you don't want to be forcing her onto it, but keep it as a slow goal that will come as a result of correct development of a young horse. There are so many other more important things to think of first.
Is you horse soft to the bit? Is she repsonsive to the leg, forward, sideways and backwards? Will she stand nice for mounting, will she wait for help if she is tangled, can she carry you in rythm and reasonable balance , is she building her underline (abdominal muscles), how is her mind growing in terms of facing scary things?
I would think about that for a year. I like best the photo of you that is the first summer shot. You legs ARE out in front of you, but you appear to have a light, forward seat that is appropriate for a newly backed horse. You don't want to be sitting down real hard on her back until she is stronger. You want to keep her thinking "forward", even if it is on the forehand, and having her keep her neck reaching forward and even sometimes downward, this is basic training level dressage.
Since you are pretty tall for this horse there seems to be a natural tendency for you to scrunch your legs up and "grip" onto her skinny abdomin. You will want to work on letting your legs go down and getting your weight to flow down into your stirrups. Even if you are forward, in the "half-seat" to help ease her back, you stil want weigth down into your stirrups. This will really make you easier for her to carry and make her encouraged to go forward energetically.
Yes puppy paws, but more important is the leg position. Might be fun for you to take a few dressage lesson on a school horse.
Really cute filly and you have potential to be a great pair.
