Another one of those 'Guessing Games'

My new pony, Benny. The last owner was told she's QH. But my farrier said she's Arab.
He's been around horses a lot, and once he said that, I did realize she's pretty dainty for a QH.
She has a short back, and a small rump. Her face isn't dishy-though.
She's 9 years old. 14hh. She's amazing fast, her walk is probably a normal horses trot. She was used for mustering and barrels. Just putting a few pictures here, more here if you need them. On the first and seccond page.
And note her awesome diagonal socks. >D
New Pony! Benny.

I don't think she is pure Arab, maybe a cross but not pure. However, it is really hard to judge from those photos sorry :(

She could be an ASH. My guess would actually be TB cross tbh tho.

Aw, I don't like TBs much. XD
I saw Arab in her body. But I had no idea for her head, it isn't QH-y.
I haven't had anything to do with Stock Horses though, so no idea what they normally look like.

And yea. Man I hate taking photos on my own. Maybe if I'm nice, my brother'll take some for me tomorra. Just conformation shots?

Yeah confo shots would help :)

The reason I say TB is that they are soooooo common in Australia. I could be completely wrong but my instinct on a bitsa is always "has to be TB there somewhere" lol.

While she could be an Arab cross, I am just not seeing it. Her tailset is quite low, and her back is a good length. Again, I could be wrong, but I just don't see it.

I went and looked at the picture thread you have :) She is really pretty!

However, looking at those pics, I am pretty comfortable to rule out Arab or Arab cross. While she is very well put together, she lacks the refinement of an Arab. Her nose seems too big, her profile is far too flat, and there is something about her eyes that also say no to me.

I think she is a QH, or maybe a QH/TB cross. Not sure if we call them Appendix here, but they are in the US.

Have you got a contact for any previous owner? Maybe you could do a call-out on an Aussie site asking for any info? I would use cavalletti, but it is very WA focussed so maybe there is an equivilent in QLD for you? Maybe stockyard?
