Critique Yearling Please!

Hi everyone!

Like most people on here, I don't have a great conformation shot. She's a yearling that we just got out of the feedlot this week, so excuse her bum high-ness. I don't know her breed (Guesses are welcome!). We were told she's cremello, but she seems to have light coloured paint markings (could be dirt) anyway, tell me what you think! This is her natural pose when she hears something...

The photo is blurred so I cannot say much about the details.. but I will say this.. I like this horse. Neck is correct and topline is correct. Angles look correct in his hind leg and he has a nice roomy hock. He has withers.. and they are correct. Shoulder looks steep but open.

I like Cremellos. I have said this before.. and I will say it again.. it seems that there is a particular temperament that comes through with this color. I have been Poo Poo'd for saying this.. but there may be genes tied to the color that show up.

I have seen a few Cremellos in feed lots and in rescue.. and not a few I would have taken in a minute if I still had my farm.

I think you have a good one here.

Thank you, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with her yet, but hopefully in the next year or two we can see what she likes and what she's good at and do something more with her than use her as a pleasure mount. She does have a fantastic demeanor, she'd never been handled, and in two sessions we've haltered her without much to-do, worked on leading, got her used to being curried, got her used to being touched on her face, neck and withers, and gotten her used to fly spray. She's really gentle, hasn't offered to kick or bite anyone, and will follow us around the paddock, but doesn't push to be touched.

I honestly cannot tell very well from the photo but the few cremellos I have met I just adored their personalities.. she is young, have fun and enjoy her!
