He's rear end and leg muscles just don't bend together which does make it weird. But so I had another question over the summer we sent her to a guy just to have fun riding she was gone like two weeks. Before she was gone she was scronny no muscles looked down in the dumps from previous owners. And over the summer she just grew massively she's got a huge hip very nice muscles she usto be like white and now she's like a golden color. So is it typical for halter breds to do that?

Halter is a pretty big industry. If you'd like to see how she does in halter classes, I'd look around for some local shows to place her in. When you take her, make sure she's cleaned up nice and put her in a nice leather halter.

Halter horses are a big industry. But you're hard-pressed to find a winning halter horse nowadays that is sound past ~5 years old; they're not bred well and end up with upright hocks and pasterns that lead to early breakdown.
Your mare does not have "big" breeding. She doesn't have any name up close that is remarkable. Her breeding is average at best.

I think that probably has more to do with her getting back into shape, and possibly a seasonal change? Usually palominos shed out golden in the summer, and the muscling is probably from her being worked

He said he only rode her once and lunged her a couple of times. He said he was to busy with work. Idk not sure about that guy anyways haha. But just trying to get it all firgured out. Is her breeding anything decent? Decent enough to breed?

Personally, I wouldn't breed her. Her pedigree isn't all that great, and I can't tell her conformation from those pictures. Even if her conformation was really good, she doesn't have a show record to back it up. And her foals would have to be some ladykillers and a sire with some PHENOMENAL names in his papers if they were going to have value to them.

She has nothing of value up close (where it counts) and only a couple of "bigger" names scattered further back in her pedigree. No, she does not have a good pedigree, and no, I wouldn't breed this pedigree.
