Guess what breed?

OK so to develop my skills of drawing horses of different breeds I thought I'd make a game thread where we can guess breeds and post our own pictures, and if no one can guess it then we know we need to improve, or have given people a really hard breed.

Also, can we go with one pic being guessed for at a time, please? Just for clarity :)

I've started with a relatively easy one, a breed I'm pretty good at and have been drawing since 2008-2009. It's not a full body shot because I'm really bad at legs from this angle and I wasn't drawing off my reference (which I will post when the breed has been guessed), but rather from memory of what my reference looked like. The markings do not match but they were not intended to so that's all good. No cheating by going and finding my ref please! (it is a stock photo that I've had my eye on for ages)

Ballpoint pen and printer paper - I will get some better paper and pens/pencils sometime in the next few weeks but for now I love working in ballpoint.

Yup :)

...but I took some artistic licence and changed a couple of things like where the tail is, and obviously the markings.

I'll go find another ref, maybe something a bit trickier :)

Nice drawing!

Thanks! Got another one. Graphite pencil and proper drawing paper this time.

This one doesn't have a ref, but I know what I was going for and I'm pretty happy with it. Excuse the pic quality, I had to take a photo of it with my phone as it's a3 size paper and my scanner only takes up to a4 size. Oh, also, don't mind the progress pics :)

Is it an Arab?

^That's my guess too!

Close... my Arabs are finer than that.
