*what breed
I'd guess QH, paint or a mix.
*age
Can't tell from a photo, but an equine dentist can give a very accurate guess from her teeth. Has she had her teeth done recently? Should be done every 12 months on average.
*and conformation
I'm not an expert but her back looks quite long. Cute face though.

Satin Reign aka "Misty"... my life, my love, my everything.

A stubborn horse walks behind you, an impatient horse walks in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you.

She looks like a QH. Google Kigers. They have a very distinct "look" to them.

As for her conformation, I like her. Nice short back. Good straight front legs. She does look a bit pigeon breasted. Nice neck set and length. Nice shoulder. Her croup is a bit steep. Can't tell much about her hind legs other than she has nice low-set hocks.

Zebra striping is a characteristic of dun factor. It's a color trait, not a breed trait. She could very well be a dunskin QH. Does she have a prominent dorsal stripe?

Fil has a kiger, they have a different face, a distinct bowing out of the bridge. Can't explain. At least that is what I see when I look at them. His is a dun.

Actually looking again, could be a Kiger cross.

looks like a kiger cross. Head isn't quite right for a full blooded one and the body is a little off too BUT it does look like there might be some kiger there. We own 3 kigers.

Looks like a quarter horse type to me. I agree with others though, there is a hint of mustang in that head!
As for age, ask a dentist or sometimes you can get a rough estimation from a book or similar if you know what to look for but this won't be as accurate.
And as for conformation, her pasterns at the back look a little long (Like my mares lol) and she is a little goose rumped (Not a bad thing)
On one or two pictures she looks just a tad back at the knee but it could be just the way she's stood.
