Can someone help me figure out her breed?

Hey everyone!

I was gifted with the most precious treasure in my life this past Winter. Unfortunately she is in the Dominican Republic and I live in NYC. I have no clue what breed she is but I'm pretty sure that she is mixed, since in DR it is common to own mixed horses.

Anyway I have come to the conclusion that she is bay, but I may be wrong. I would like to have as much information and opinions that I can receive in regards to my mare. She is almost two y/o. She was brought to my house after being held tied to a tree without water for three days. the first picture was taken two weeks after she was at home.

By using the term bay I am speaking in regards to her color, not her breed.

It's hard to know for sure, but I am seeing some Spanish barb influence in her. She is very cute! And you are right, she is a bay. One thing I do see is, she could use either a bit more food or a little exercise to build those muscles on her top line. She looks a bit bony.

I am curious how you were gifted her? And how did she make it to NYC?

Colour wise she is bay. Breed wise I'm not sure I've never been good a determining that from photos.

Horses lend us the wings we lack;

My first thought was that there's a little bit of Paso Fino her, maybe?

Very hard to say. In one shot she looks like she cold have a touch of morgan, but not so much in any others. Whatever she is...she is a doll...hopefully you can get her fattened up soon.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I think you should say her breed is "Precious Treasure" - she's so sweet and we would love to hear & see more of your story with her!!

She looks like a Paso to me. Pretty. Do you know if she trots, or does another gait?

Congratulations!

Is this the mare you are breeding or have already bred, to a buckskin stallion, per your other post? Is the horse now with you or are you breeding the mare, long distance? Seems to me, since if you are not able to look after the mare yourself, if she stays in the DR, and you have no idea of her background, breeding isn't a very good idea.

She's a cute little girl, but not really something I'd consider breeding. She could be just about anything.
