In no way, shape or form is she Highland.
My friend breeds Highlands in the actual Highlands of Scotlands and none of them have mottling. He's had some crosses in the past and none of them resemble your mare.
I'd say she's Mustang x Appy.
Creme gene maybe.
She is definitely not Highland.
I've seen a lot of funky coloured horses in the states and yours kinda looks Dappled Palomino but Roan aswell.
All breeds will have a thick coat unless clipped or rugged up to the eyeballs.
My Welsh mare has an insane coat this year after the morons who had her on loan starved her and turned her out with no rug.
I'm clipping her soon now she's back in work, but she basically looks like a different horse now because of her coat.
Unless it's got Cushings or it's a Curly horse, coat growth can't determine a horses breed.
