Cute filly :D
Just judging from those picturse, what i can tell is that she has a decent shoulder and a nice, short back.
Over at the knee in the front legs and cowhocked in the back.
Sharp slope to her croup but she should develope into a beautiful little horse.

has a very nice head and butt. looks like her neck might be long? not sure .my horse was a late grower too. he is 7 now and last year he finally grew into his big self. She will be GORGEOUS!

She's beautiful. The one thing that jumps out to me is that she is over at the knee and cowhocked, like lilruffian said. Overall, I think she looks very compact. Short back, average pasterns, her bone looks a bit on the lighter side to me. Her pasterns look like an average length. I like her shoulder, it looks to have a good angle, and her butt is nice and powerful. Overall, I really like her body, not to mention she has nice color ;)
What do you plan on doing with her? I kind of see her doing barrel racing, does anyone else?...

I can see the barrel racing in her. She's downhill and it helps a lot with barrel racing since they have to get down and go around the barrels. Plus she looks like she's going to be an athletic son of a good with pretty good confo and a nice hip. I also agree that she is a little cowhocked and over the knee but nothing serious that'll be any problem later on, or so I think.

thanx everyone sorry the pics suck. i do mostly trail riding and work cattle

ANY horse can do trails to some capacity. I'll address the stock work.

I think she has the look of a horse that can get down and turn quick, accelerate fast, and stop fast. In other words, physically, she has the look of a horse that would make a GREAT cow horse. Question is, how cowy is she? THAT will dictate how well she does working cattle.

As an aside, my level-to-uphill, long-backed anglo arab is a pretty handy "cow" horse, and he's definitely NOT built for it! I tried "cutting" a horse with him and once he figured out what I wanted him to do I barely had to touch him. I know another anglo arab that's built similar, just with a shorter back, and she's a top campdrafter (do you have campdrafting in the US?) having won state champ A grade horse in her youth. It's more about the cow sense than the confo.

All that being said, I really like your girl. I have a weakness for chestnut overos, especially splash/sabino/frame combination overos like her... I wouldn't buy her myself, because I ride jumpers and she's not built for it, but she looks like she'll be a fun ride and she should do what you want her to do.
