    There should be a araby look. The Spaniards brought horses to the continent.
    BTW, arabs are of spanish decent as well so...yea. Why most mustangs are so, don't kill me, plain, I don't know.

    Most Spanish horses are descendants of Arabians, so I see why she would have some arabian characteristics. I have an arab with a similar back and there is nothing wrong with it at all.

    I definitely see Arab in her. Her muzzle, arched neck, sprung ribs, flat forearms and her extended trot look Arab. You know, considering how people have been releasing horses they cannot afford into wild places, it is quite possible that her dam was an Arabian. Boy, that third photo of her trotting is quite a selling point. She looks elevated in front in that pic. Are you planning on looking at her, maybe adopting?

    Haha...no, nor are Spanish horses of Arab descent that we know of. Spanish, Arabs, and Barbs all date back to about the same point in time. History is a little grey before 3,000 BC, though we know of course they all descended from horses chased across the Bering Land Bridge by hungry Paleoindians...

    It matters very little what horses the spanish brought to this country. They were mostly all gone by the middle of the 1800's. The horses that make up most of the BLM nightmare are descended from horses that were turned loose and left to roam on open range after ranchers and farmers started using more mechanized equipment in the 1920's and 30's. Then a bleeding heart city transplant led an effort to protect the "wild " horse and keep them from being managed by the people that have to live with them.

    Yes some were released by the Calvary

    Quite the contrary, the genetic base of mustangs is spanish. Sure, just about every kind of horse on the continent has been mixed in and with the exception of a couple of relatively closed populations, they are mutts - that doesn't change the origin. No offense, but the very fact that many mustangs exhibit strong spanish traits clearly demonstrates the continuing strong presence of spanish genetics.

    When you see a mustang with obviously strong draft influence, does that draft influence "not matter" because the draft that introduced the influence lived 100 years ago? Of course not...the genetic influence is there whether the draft was the sire or was 6 generations back - otherwise it would not have the phenotype it does...
