She definitely looks more thoroughbred to me.

Critique is not my strong point, but i'll have a go anyway.
I see very high withers and somthing funny about the way her neck ties in. Bit of a hunters bump, and a bit wasp waisted.I think legs are good. I really like the colour too and small pretty face.

Hopefully someone more knowledgable than me will jump in.

There is something fugly about that neck, how it dips in, and the high withers don't help. I'm not even sure where that would come from. Poor breeding is my guess though.. does look TB to me as well.

The base of her neck is not like that, I thought that from photos too. Her mane is roached, and stands up but at the bottom there, it folds dowwn. It looks odd but it's not

I'd just say the farther up you go the worse it gets. Her feet and legs are nice, then it starts going wrong. If her withers weren't so off I wouldn't have much to complain about. But I guess as long as she isn't in any pain and makes a nice ride it doesn't matter what she looks like. But yes, she looks like a TB as others have said. But being part mustang could give the possibility of the random, ugly parts, even if her mustang parent was byootiful. But again, as long as she makes a nice horse it doesn't matter what she looks like. As long as she isn't bred, because she definitely doesn't need to pass those traits on.

Good luck with her. ^-^

If she IS part QH, it could be one of those with a lot of TB in the background. Heck you see some that has only one little link to anything QH on some pedigrees.

To me, she seems to be made up of a lot of different parts, not quite put together in the right way. I'm not an expert, it just looks.... odd.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

actually, that sums it up perfectly.

I'm guessing that she probably does have TB in her, mostly because of that wither. BITD was also right about the fact that if she really is 1/2 mustang, that is more than enough reason for her to be funny looking. Mustangs have crazy gene pools that sometimes seem to literally just throw up nasty looking horses.

She has a pretty, alert looking face though, I'll say that much. Not very feminine, but acceptable. I would watch out with what kind of saddle you get her though, and always thoroughly check her back for sores and keep a look out for odd behavior. The way she's built makes me think it's going to be really hard if not impossible for her to get into frame and carry herself decently.

Oh I beleived the mustang part, just not the quarter horse part. And are her high withers really going to restrict her? I understand the hard fitting of a saddle, what else will it cause? What do I need to worry about with that? Is there anything I can do

I can't really tell you if it's going to hinder her or not without seeing her movement. The fact that her shoulder angles aren't great, and that wither is so high, as well as the neck's build, I just see it as being hard for her to really use herself. If you really focus on teaching her to use her high end to gather herself up, and are patient with her though, I'm sure you can atleast make her a decent ride. I'd just watch for locking joints, and try to get her to carry herself as long and low as possible. If you allow her to walk around like a girrafe, she'll develope an undermuscled neck, with all of the lower muscles much stronger than her topline; while really what you're wanting is for her to establish a topline.
