Conformation Critique of Appaloosa Mare?

I found some conformation shots(they are literally the best pictures we got out of almost 100 shots) and was wondering what my mare may excel at conformation wise? and/or what would be best for her conformation wise, If you can even tell because of the cruddy pictures.

She is a really nice looking Appy. I ride an appy, too, but mine has a much longer back. Is she registered pure?
She could do anything, really. Would be a tidy little English horse.

Well, she is sturdily built and could probably do whatever you have a mind to do!

I like her. She's mutton-withered, could use more depth to her heartgirth, and has a tendency to stand under herself if the photos are accurate, but none of those are necessarily crippling things. There's really not a whole lot to pick on, and like tinyliny, I see her being a good all-rounder. Point her at gymkhana, jumping...

She wouldn't behave and it was windy, so lets just say they aren't the best possible but they are the best we got.
