yes i think she toes out, but that is way better then toeing in, and if she has no lame problems then its not really an issue. she looks a little under muscled, but shes cute and i like her :)

woudl toeing out cause tripping?? because she trips some thoer then that she is very sound and has EXCELLENT feet. and yeah we are working on muscling. i broke her myself just a year ago exactly. and she was kept as a pasture pet for 6 years. so we are definatly working on muscle.

She's not a mustang. She would have a brand on her neck if she was. It would show up even with her light color ussualy. She also doesn't look like a mustang.

well her mom was a full blooded mustang. and she was bred with something else. so she isn't wild caught. she was born at the ladies home. but her mom is full. not sure what they bred her with.

I have a human bred mustang! And he looks nothing like your horse! Maybe she was bred with a qh, or a more slender breed! Because she is a bit more refined than the average mustang, and the head isn't right! She is a total beauty though! :D

i was told she was bred with an Appaloosa colored highland pony... but i just don't see it.. i mean she is a bit fuzzier and her hair is really thick and long and she has the fuzz on her feet but other then that. i really don't see much

Cool color! She's pretty cute. Has a bit of a nest going on where her neck ties into her chest, but it could be because of her fuzzies. Could use more muscling but she's pretty proportional and cute! [=

She's a bit more finely built than most mustangs I've seen but if she's mixed then who's to say? I think she's lovely despite her minor flaws. Definitely love her color!

awe! She is so fuzzy!
My horse has hardly any fuzz.

She does toe out it looks like.

I had horse that toed out and she tripped all the time and stumbled. She was 13 years young :) She was the best! So sweet and gentle but I returned her to the previous owner because I have epilepsy and can't afford having a horse fall down all the time...maybe arthritis? Not sure.

hmm are any of the big ponies built downhil? i don't know the lady i bought her from used her as a pasture ornament and i never really got a look to see if her mom had the mustang brand so maybe she lied? she seemed kinda like backyard breed in a way. plus she just seemed to easy to break. althoguh she had never been ridden before so maybe i really was lied to. but who knows i love her to death anyway!

ok well i was playing around with some of her photos today. and i don't think she is mixed with app AT ALL i was darkening some photos and this is what i found!! also the hoof is a picture of a vertical stripe i found on her hoof!! and the last picture is of the mottling on the other side of her face! i am assuming because of that side with no "mascara" that she is baldie on that side?? so what does this mean?

Well, she has a slight downhill form, so that might help when deciding her breed.....I know TB's and QH's are built downhill, mustangs are built slightly downhill, what other breeds?
Any breed can be built downhill...it's not a breed type thing, it's a conformation 'flaw' thing...happens in any breed...:wink:

Personally, because of mustang's mixed heritage, there is alot of different style out there; I have seen mustangs with the heavy heads, and really large frames, but I've also seen ones with more refined build...they are a mixed breed horse to begin with, so anything can crop up, really.

She does look mustang-ish, especially in the first picture of the second set of photos you posted..., and due to that, she can be any pattern, or color scheme possible...
