There's nothing I don't like about this mare.

Maybe a little over at the knee. Her left hind looks like the heel is underrun, while her right hind almost appears clubbed in comparison. Could just be the pic or a wonky trim job. Her neck ties in slightly high, but is a good length.

She has a lovely short back, good bone, great angles to her joints all the way around...and she's my absolute favorite color ever.

What is she crossed with?

I'd steal her in a heartbeat...and I'm not even really a mare person.

As far as what you could do with her...pretty much anything, really. I could see her in the hunter ring, especially.

She is certainly a pretty girl. I also like her quite a lot .
She is a bit overweight, though.

I think her bone is not as remarkable as Drafty thinks it is. It's acceptable, in my book. But her front canons are not as short as is optimal. Her shoulder and neck are wonderful .
Her front feet look too long and there's some dishing happening on the front right hoof.

She really is quite a nice filly,

Very nice - I'd take her in a minute. Very pretty girl who could probably do well in just about any discipline you would choose! Love her color and her head.

What others have said...lovely mare.

Strong hindquarters, nice shoulder and great neck. Pretty head. Strong back and topline.

I do not like her front pasterns. Or her trim job. Id be looking for a new farrier. Looks like not enough heel and too much toe.

I can definitely see her in Hunter.

She's nice...a bit chubby, and her hocks look high set to me. But very pretty.
