I actually agree with Aussie. When I first saw her, the first thing I thought of was a TWH. She seems to have the gaited conformation, although that could definitely be from the awkwardness of being young and so neglected.
As for size, believe it or not, I knew some people who bought a registered Thoroughbred gelding off the track. He'd blown both his front tendons, and I kid you not, he wasn't even 15hh as an adult. Smallest TB I'd ever seen, I darn near wouldn't have believed it if it weren't for the papers. So their ARE some small ones out there, and as everyone else said, malnutrition can do awful things to young horses.
So I don't think you'd be totally off in considering her a TB. She definitely has the refined lines to be so.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
