Can't tell much about the neck or shoulder, with so much mane. However, she still seems butt-high. She does seem to toe out on all four feet. Feet need some farrier attention by someone knowledgeable in Mini feet. She is also camped under. Common fault in Minis. Pretty colour and pattern. Probably not breeding quality, but difficult pictures to judge. What is her breeding? How tall is she?
I'd take that bit out of her mouth, or adjust it properly.
Also, it is conformation, not confirmation.

Is she a mini, or a Shetland?

Feet need proper trimming pretty bad. Appears to need proper nutrition and deworming and/or less calories.

According to height, Minis can be Shetlands and Shetlands can be Minis.

So all Shetlands are minis, but not all minis are shetties.

That is not what I said. Read it again.

Google some Miniature Horse pedigrees and see if you can find some which list the breeds. You will see some say 'Miniature' and under other horses, it might say 'Shetland'. These Shetlands were mostly smaller ones of the breed, who fit into a Miniature Horse breeding programme.

These days in the US, most Shetlands have taken on a very different look, being much more refined and often taller, than those years ago. Some do still cross Minis and Shetlands but I imagine they only would choose a very small type Shetland these days, if they want the offspring to fall into the Mini category.

Think of Minis as being more of a height breed. With that in mind, a 40"
Shetland would likely not be used for breeding Minis and not registered as one.

I hope that I explained it well enough anyway and didn't leave you too confused.

I thought there were A rated and R rated minnies, then Shetlands, all dependent on height.
