This is a really nice horse. While he may be a mustang.. it is very likely a Quarterhorse stud or mare was in the bunch when this horse was conceived. It is not uncommon for this to happen, especially where horses are kept on open range.
He has a bit of an over straight hind leg, and his body is a bit long but he is a solid individual and, if he is still working sound at age 17 that is all the conformation critique he needs. He has spoken for himself!
I've done some research on mustangs from the Navajo areas and it mentioned quarter horses and thoroughbreds being introduced to the herds to help improve the quality of the horses :) Posted via Mobile Device
