By not providing enough pictures to show all available clues, you are denying anyone here a chance to provide an informed opinion. Personally, I doubt this is Ming or early Qing, because the brush strokes in the horse do not exhibit the flow or energy of those made by an artist who'd come up as an apprentice under a demanding Master, which was about the only way to get work as a serious artist in those days.
Also, during the Qing, Ming and earlier dynastic times in China, any porcelain painter worth his master's efforts to train him, would have begun his own career well-schooled in the Confucian ethic, meaning well indoctrinated in the virtues of doing anything worth doing in the old-fashioned way. In my opinion, this horse doesn't pass that test, not that further information in a 360-degree set of photos might not override this tunnel-vision opinion of mine.
Here's a 6.5 inch Transitional-to-Kangxi (mid-late 1600s) blue & white bowl with the kind of art I refer to. It has a mark on the base of "Beikou" (北口), which is the name "Northern Pass", given a section of the Great Wall North of Beijing.
