She does have that "stuffed animal" quality.

I'd happily ride that mare down the trail any day!

Oh trust me, I get that feeling every day! Thanks everyone, I didn't doubt that she had good conformation but since I'm not a pro and really don't know the difference between and good and bad conformation so I wanted to gather some other opinions.

Here are a couple face pictures just for the heck of it :) She's more defined and 'elegant' looking without her winter fluff.

Goodness she almost looks like a different horse without all of that fuzz! Such a pretty girl. I'd snap her up in a heartbeat!

She has a nice expression and looks like a sturdy using horse. I'd much prefer her over a more "elegant" type with light bones and upright pasterns.

Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the first pictures were taken from too high, so that the image is a bit distorted. The photographer should bend down so that the camera is pointer at about her shoulder height and pointer horizontal to the ground. Easier said than done.

Yes, I was standing on a "deck" type thing where we keep our tack. It's about a foot higher than she was. I will take some more pictures from a better angle when I can, thanks for the tip!

Thanks everyone :) :)

She reminds me a lot of one of my favorite little horses to ride, a quarter horse mare my BO owns. I bet she loves to work and is a great trail horse

as others have said, she looks sturdy, compact, and like a very good all around using horse. Great expression on her face, and I'm a sucker for a grey

I would like to see different pictures of her because the light is shining on her topline and I can't see her croup or withers. From what I can see is that her neck ties low into her shoulders. She has a very short head, and very little detail. It looks like she has a square head. She's cute.

Now that I posted this I can see you did post other pictures. Pardon me. :)
