New Horse Introduction! Conformation/hooves/breed/coloring... Lots of pics.
 
This is my new 4 year old mare that we have been calling Cali Anne. She is not registered so I am wondering what breed she is. I also would like to know what color you would call her and the genetics that go along with it.

Conformation critique would also be helpful!

I'm *thinking* about crossing over to the dark side and doing some English cross county with her, but not sure if she is cut out for it as I know nothing about English riding.

I got one picture of her hoof but wasn't coordinated to get the rest.

Thanks!

Looks like a Paint to me. Palomino Tobiano for sure with splash and sabino?
As for conformation, she's really not that bad ;)
Shoulder is a tad upright it seems to me but she has sufficient depth through her girth
Nothing severaly wrong with her front legs apart from the pasterns being too long and sloping
Back is long and possibly bum high
Personally, i love her bum
Hard to say about her hind legs without her standing squared up, but i have a suspicion she may be a tiny bit sickle-hocked, but not to any severe degree ;)

she looks nice! she needs a trim with some good filing and her soles cleaned up a bit, but has a very nice hoof, from what I can tell.
Congrats on your new horse.

Thanks! We haven't our farrier out yet, so I'm hoping he can fix her up:)

Is that the only picture that showed up??

What a pretty mare! Palomino Tobiano as lilruffian already said, the white on her lower lip indicates a sabino trait as well, but if I had to explain to somebody the color of the horse I would not get that technical. I personally like the neck a bit lower set, from the pictures it's hard to tell, she might be toed out in the front and a bit cow hocked in the back - or she just does not stand straight. But she is really nice put together all around, I guess how she moves will tell more if she will make a good english prospect. As for breed - my first wild guess would be paint/saddle bred (fairly long face, not as much of a butt as a paint would have). But as I said: wild guess! :)
Good buy - pretty horse and she seems to be content.
