To be completely honest (as any critique should be), she's a bit of a conformational train wreck. I would have never even considered breeding her, however what's done is done. I can only hope that the foal takes more after the sire and that you don't breed her again after this.
Although most of this has been stated before (and I'm just looking at the most recently added pictures), she has a very long, weak back with high withers, a very upright croup, short hip, extremely upright shoulder, a short, unshaped neck, and a very unfeminine/unrefined head. She is also downhill, slightly back at the knee, camped out, and would be sickle hocked if her hocks were under her properly.
I'll stop there, but I still didn't touch on everything.
Based on her appearance, she really doesn't have any strong points besides her color, which should never be a reason to breed.
I'm not a believer in breeding BLM mustangs (although there ARE some very nice ones out there if you insist on doing it). IMO, the point is to save a horse that would otherwise be facing the rest of it's life in a long-term holding facility, not to breed them and produce unregistered, unwanted babies.
While there is a market for branded mustangs, there is no market for a "mustang cross". Simply none. Mustang/QHs go for absolutely dirt cheap around here- and that's saying something, because horse prices in AZ are currently outrageous.
I do hope that you don't become sad or upset about what I have said, as those were not my intentions at all. Instead, I hope learn from it.
Long lists of serious faults were pointed out on your mare, and yet you still went right along and bred her, which is a bit disappointing (seeing as you had the perfect opportunity to use better judgment and not go through with it.) Although I wish you would have taken all of it into serious consideration before it was too late, there's nothing anyone can do about it at this point.
All of that said, I truly wish you luck with your mare and for the future of this foal.
