Purebred or mix?

My friend got a horse about 2 months ago. She was told she is Am. Saddlebred. But we aren't sure if she's purebred, poorly bred, or mix bred. So I come here to ask for your opinions. This is Estrella (Star).

Full body standing


Head shot


And Beautiful mover! Sooooo smooth

Looks like a full Saddlebred to me.

What's going on with her hind legs? Does she have a uterine infection, or something?

Looks saddlebred to me, but the coloration is unusual. Almost like an Appy in color. I've never seen a Sbrd that color before.

Looks like someone was breeding for color rather than type. She isnt a stellar representation, but yea the color is unusual and greys do sell so that's why....
Is Estrella supposed to be a registered name? If so, I can look it up and see if she is registered, if you would like.

She does look like she could use a few pounds and a bath.

Agreed here. With about 100 added pounds she would look much better and I also believe she is a full-blooded Saddlebred.

It looks like she may have been a grey sabino (lots of white, by the appearance), at one point, but has of course gone flea bitten with age.

I would say she could certainly be purebred; certainly not a show stopper, but probably a good ride, and she has a kind appearance. Just needs a few groceries and a bath, and she will look super again!

She's a fleabitten gray tobiano.
I'm talking about the stains on her hind legs. Some is mud/clay, but some appears to be dripping from higher up, and looks kind of nasty and worrisome.
