Thanks everyone for compliments, she is a very special mare to me.

Yes, technically she is a grey, but her base color is grulla, so to me she is a grulla that is going to go grey. And she is registered. AQPA stands for American Quarter Pony Association. She is 14hh and of western type build, which qualifies her for the association. All of her offspring would also be registrable with the AQPA as well. So I wouldn't be breeding a grade horse.

And I have looked, sure I can find similar pedigree, but a pedigree doesn't make a horse, what makes her special is her work ethic, the fact that she was severely abused and still offers kindness, the fact that she is smart and confident.

I'm sorry, I'm didn't put this up to discuss if I should or shouldn't breed her, it isn't something that I look into lightly. I'm simply wanted to see what shortcomings in conformation I was overlooking when I look at her.

Here is what I see, she is slightly downhill, her bone is on the light end, her back is shorter then equal proportions, she toes out in the hind end, but is straight through the hocks.

Reg 1/4 pony then breed reg 1/4. And you did state you did not know wether to breed to a quarter or arab cross soo.. that kinda did put things up for discussion, I misread the Registered part..

Yes, I'm not sure if I want to breed her to an Arabian cross for a full blooded Quarter, but either way, because she is registered with AQPA her offspring will be registered with AQPA as long as I don't breed to a giant quarter horse. But my question was what conformational attributes should I be looking for in a stallion, be it quarter or arab, to best compliment her, based on her shortcomings in the conformational department.

I think she is really nicely built.. Nice deep chest, shoulder may seem a little steep but maybe the way she is standing.. Pretty neck that ties in high..

To "stevenson" -----> I believe any base color can gray out as gray is dominant.. Even roan can gray out :)

Anybody else want to take a crack at her. You can pick her apart without hurting my feelings.
