unknown gaited horse

I would like any input on what breed of horse this may be. She is one of the best horses we have and we know the least about her. When we got her we were told that she was a Tn Walker, but i'm not so sure. Any thoughts would be great.

My TWH mare has feathers but not as long as your mare's. It might help if we had video of her moving in her gaits and some confo shots. She has a really pretty head which makes me think she's not TWH - usually they don't have such expressive faces (IMHO).

oh, ladytrails, you wound me! I think walkers have some of the most expressive faces of any breed I've seen. Those big noses, large, glittering eyes... Ok, ok, I'm biased :P

As for the mare...I'm not sure many non-draft horses would have feathers like that. It's possible, I suppose, but I'll bet she has such feathering because there's draft blood in there somewhere.

It would really help to see a video of her movement, as that can tell a lot about what gaited breed she is.

Based on looks alone, I'll say either Walker or Paso, but not full-blood.

Arrowsaway, No intention to wound - I am totally in love with my TWH and the breed in general!

I'm takin a shot with paso. She looks a little to thick to me to be a stb. But like it has already been stated she may have some draft in her and she is a cross of some sort. One thing for sure is that she is a cutie :)

Thanks for all the input. We are new to horses, we bought a saddle for $200.00 and they gave us the horse. She has turned out to be one of the kindest horses we have. I thought she was club footed but later found out that she is coon footed. I was told that she will be ridable for about 3-5 more years. After that all she has to do is act like she's not in pain,eat, and be happy.

one of the TWH has feathers like that at our barn, no one has clipped them yet and so they just grow. I keep my horses clipped as she's a pally and i dont want her getting scratches...but i dont think that is out of the ordinary if she isnt being trimmed up.

Do you have any pictures of her moving out? It would be easier to see what breed she is with a movement photo.
