What type does she look like?????

i just got my first horse from a freisian breeding farm, her name is Rose:) all i know about her breed is she is part TWH, she looks nothing like it, but she gaits with specific bit. She is very largely built. Huge legs, huge body, huge neck.she also has feathered feet, like the draft horses, and HUMONGOUS hooves. her personality is very very sweet. though she gets very very anxious when im waiting my turn for something and she has to stand still. she also has bad anxiety. she gets very very nervous when lots of stuff is going on.

You've got yourself a half-draft (or at least partial draft) of some sort.

A lot of half-drafts come from the mistaken belief that if you cross "hot blood" (like a Arab) with "cold blood" (like a draft horse) that you magically get a "Warm Blood" that will be worth $100,000. Sadly, such is generally not the case. So these "breeding experiments" get sold off. Sometimes they're good horses and sometimes they're not. You're looks OK. The "nervousness" that you mention can be the result of a lot stuff ("nervous DNA," over feeding, under work, poor fitting tack, etc.). Sometimes it's just a function of age (how old is the horse?).

As to gait, maybe so and maybe not. A video would show a lot.

Good luck with your horse.
