Anybody see any Arab?

I was playing around on the BLM website, and I came across this filly.
Is it just me, or do I see a very strong arabian influence?

Since the mustang is a combination of so many different breeds and since the Arab is the foundation of so many breeds, it wouldn't be a surprise to see it's influence on that filly.

I couldn't get the link to open fo me but, I remember a few years ago in some areas where mustang numbers were dwindling, BLM released purebred stallions to help raise the numbers again and introduce new bloolines. Perhaps she's a product of an arabian?

^ Where in the world did you read that? The BLM is all about cutting numbers down, not adding them (and wasting more taxpayer dollars!).

She's pretty, I suppose it's possible she could have some Arabian in her.

It of course is possible - there can be virtually any breed that has or has had a North American presence present in a mustang, but the odds would generally favor a Spanish rather than Arab influence.

I think theres a bit of Arab in her. She does have a slightly flat butt/back I have seen in a few Arabs.

I noticed a VERY flat back! She is so cute but her back is like a table!
She does seem to have some arabian influence though
