Red face Critique my Dancer?

I'm half afraid to do this, and I don't have any really GOOD pictures of her, but tell me what you think? I have no idea what breed she is - she's pretty much just a rescued backyard horse. She isn't gaited that I could tell, but she just floats along. She hasn't been ridden in a very long time. I'm pretty much having to start over, but she's progressing rapidly in her ground work. She was pretty stubborn at first, but once she figured out I meant business, she settled on down. She's such an odd color! Sorry about the picture quality. I didn't realize how bad it was...

Don't be afraid, she's beautiful. Although I know nothing of critiquing conformation. Do you know how old she is?

She's 10 or 11, from what I understand. I'm not sure. Our farrier was going to mouth her when he came out, but she wouldn't stand for it. She's about 1100 pounds of bad attitude!

She's very pretty! The color is wonderful!

Anyway, she looks a little bit down hill (mostly judging from the first picture). Smart horse people, what do ya'll think?

She does look a bit like she's going down hill. I've seen the term and recognize it in a horse, but I have no idea what the consequences are...

She is nice looking. How big is she? I'm not too good with breeds. She looks like a mustang to me and they are usually total mutts. She doesn't have a brand on her neck does she? Other than that I was just thinking QH.

She is just a regular Grulla color. But she is purty :]
All I see is she stands under her self quite a bit.

She's right around 14 - 14.5 hh. My mother thought spanish mustang (there's stallion on their website that is nearly her identicl twin.) However, in reality, neither one of us has a clue. Nor did the previous owner. All we know is that she came out of New Mexico a few years ago...

"All I see is she stands under her self quite a bit. " What does that mean? (Not upset about it, just curious)

Sorry I gave the wrong term. She is sickle Hocked. That isn't a bad thing. A lot of Reiners look for that in a horse.

Sickle Hocked-Sickle-hocked is when the back legs joints, of an animal are set with too much angle, resulting in the hock of an animal also having too much angle.

Thank you for all your help - especially for the explanations of the terms used. I really appreciate it!
