    She appears butt high and a slight sway back showing up and her neck appears to tie in a little low and is ptetty thick but that's all I can really see as im not super good at confo yet sorry :/. Looks like a really sweet horse though :)

    lol She's on her way to you J/k. Im just curious since I don't know much about conformation not that it matters to me lol.
    I

    I was wondering if the slight sway is sway back starting which I think is really weird on an eight year old horse ( maybe she was ridden by a heavy ridder since she is small ?) idk

    My ex Sister in-law has a Mustang, similar with the heavy neck, tall withers and a slight sway in the back.

    This horse is the result of the Government's introduction of draft horses to the mustang herd back in the 1800's. You can see draft all over this girl. That being said, she is not bad. She has a very strong coupling. Too bad she has such a long and swayed back. It will likely not impact her working.

    More impact to riding is her down hill build, which will make it a bit more difficult to get her to shift her weight rearward and collect. She has good bone and roomy hocks that are set a bit too high. She is not really tied in at the knee.. she just has nice large knees. Her shoulder is steep and the angle at point of shoulder is a bit closed. Humerus lays a bit flat so she won't be a great jumping horse.

    She is really well cared for which is nice to see. Maybe a bit overweight.. but not enough to really say so.

    She looks like a nice steel dust and like she will be a great ride for a lot of years.

    The above posts I agree with but most of what I love is her feet. SHe looks like she has the good solid foot to build your foundation on! Have fun with her!
