Anybody want to guess on what this horse is?

I am curious as to what breed you all think Molly was...

She was about 13.3-14.0 hh. Had a sweet temperament and would do anything...
And was in her 20s when the pictures were taken...

She died a while back but I was always curious as to what her breed was...

Anybody want to put in their 2 cents worth?

That's what she looks like to me, Standardbred with maybe some Arab or Morgan mixed in. Can't really tell if she's got the Arab indents. I'm sorry for your loss as well, she's beautiful, looks so calm and content.

The guy who had her before us used her as a "pleasure" buggy horse besides having her for the kids to ride... Also her big ears liked to flop (like in the 2 and 4th pictures) is that a characteristic of a certain breed ? I doubt she was part Arab, because she was not very graceful...

LOL, I've heard lots about floppy ears, heard this from an old trainer, "A good indicator of a relaxed & happy horse when riding is floppy ears--although some horses tend to "flop" more than others." I don't think it necessarily pertains to a certain breed.

Looks like a standardbred cross to me as well. Maybe Standardbred XArab or a welsh cross.

She reminds me of a TB I know, exact color and floppy ears, also same topline.. So I would guess a TB cross.

floppy ears are a sign of a dependable horse.

She WAS dependable! Not only that she was the best beginner horse ever, and she would put up with mistake after mistake.
