Please critique my 3 yr. old

Here is a 3 year old percheron/arab? We are not exactly sure wht breed she is, but thats what we were told from someone who supposedly owned her at one point. So as a 3 year old i would like to know what you think of her conformation. also if you have any idea what breesd she looks like to you i would love to hear.

Definitely looks like she could be a Perch/Arab!

Unfortunately I'm no good at critiquing conformation, but I like her. She's very pretty.

She looks to me like she could be that mix. Her neck is pretty cresty and she has perch feet. Cute little mare. Her confo isn't bad at all, except for that thick neck and her back looks a little bit long. She may be a touch cow hocked behind, but I've known a lot of Arabs that were, and it was never a problem. She looks older than three to me though. Either that or she matured early. She's definitely a looker, I like her a lot.

She's definitely got percheron in her face, however she's built lighter like an arab. I'd say she could very well be a percheronXarab. Some crosses work out great (such as this girl, by the looks of it) & some result in a really mutty-looking horse.
Anywho... She looks good. Nice short back & not hollow, which is great. Her back legs are slightly too far back at the hock, but seem straight with nice pasterns & feet. She has a good looking back end & i like the look of her front legs from both angles. She has a good neck arch & lovely head set, which mostlikely comes from the arab. From the front, her face is a bit long but like i said before she's got ther percheron/draft features, one of which is her very kind eyes.
I think she's a very nice looking horse!

As everyone said, she does look to be perch/arab.
She looks great for a 3 year old. Usually when they're at that age they look a bit lanky and awkward (like any typical teen). But this girl is very well proportioned and that face is just gorgeous to boot. Lovely :)

I think she is SO cute! She seems to have gotten the best of both worlds. The only thing that stands out to me is a slightly long back and downhill build. At 3 she could easily even out in the future. I just love her!!
