Thoughts on the Mystery Mare?

I finally have decent confo pics of Dally the mystery mare From what I know she's approx. 8 or 9. She's about 15hh ( haven't officially measured yet). Originally, I was planning on using her for reining or barrels, but we'll see there's A LOT that needs to be worked on before that stuff. I know her feet need to be trimmed, they had a growth spurt & are scheduled to be done next week. Just interested in what you guys think, don't worry you can be as honest as you want

I love her color, chest and butt! LoL. She looks (foundation) QH to me.

She looks like a nice mare. Nice solid engine, decent heartgirth. She is a bit over at the knees, but she has a big shoulder. I really like the look of this mare and she'll look even better with some exercise & conditioning of her topline.

I'm not really seeing over at the knee. I like her a lot. I agree, QH, foundation type for sure. Nice mare, she'll be a good using horse once you've sorted out the issues you mentioned.

Sorry I might have missed it in the picture but what is she branded with and where? Maybe she came from the north country!

It's on her right hip, kinda hard to see with her fuzz. So far I've checked w/ the Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, N & S Dakota branding depts. Mont has 4 registered to that brand, I was able to contact 3 of them with no luck (the 3rd I can't get an address for), there's a possibilty in S. Dakota I just have to send a letter. Otherwise, no one else has it registered.

Here's my lovely sketch of the brand, thanks for any help ideas you may have:
