Does she look like a Standardbred?

I think she looks like one. Big ears, long back, higher croup, shorter front legs, willing to work. And she's got great feet. Hasn't had shoes since she was a baby.
From what I've read and heard, these are all Standardbred traits.
Here's a picture. Tell me what you guys think(:

The only thing not Standardbredy about her is her barrel. It's not wide enough. She's narrow and snakey

She looks more thoroughbred to me.

Does she do that gait thing that standardbreds do?

I can really only see it in her face. Like Mango said, she looks more Thoroughbred.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

'Yes she racks.
I think she's a little to long to be a.thoroughbred. When she's moving she looks more like she should hahah

Standardbred.. or a cross on Standardbred. The hind quarters, good bone, set of the neck and shoulder.. and the color with those long ears say Standardbred to me.
