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'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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!).

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

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
