I think she deffinately has QH, its trying to figure out the other side that's giving the issues...

And it doesn't help that the guy I got her from, you couldn't rely on him to tell you his correct name, if he thought changing it would help him sell a horse!

She looks A LOT like a Morgan x QH. Morgan was the first breed I thought when I saw the first picture.

she did look ALOT like this girl's TB/morgan, except my mare is stockier
If she's qh/morgan that would explain the stockiness!

It sounds like I basically need to decide what I think best fits her, and if people raise an eyebrow just eplain its a real good guess with advice and critiques from people.....

Now for the decision time

She looked really similar to the tb/morgan, but SO many people have said appendix ahhhhh!!

My brain will explode before i'm through

Quarab is my guess too

My first thought was also QH/ARAB but I think her Arab side is also mixed. How about one parent was a stock QH and the other an Arab/Morgan cross? She is a Heinz 57 like my new colt. There is one pic where I can see the dishy Arab face in her so the broker may have been pretty close to correct.
I have been trying to figure out my boy as well. When I figure out how to post pics I will

Well as far as the dished head goes, I had a QH/?? That was definitely part arab and she had a very noticable dished head, and I don't see much resemblance in this mare. I think if anything what looks arab is really tb....
I've also got an older OTTB and if I had to choose I would say tb over arab for her. But I swear she's got some morgan in there. But the guy imlied she was a half and half, but as far as breeds goes, I don't think he would know which end is up just as long as he can sell it fast

I'm just trying to figure out the closest thing, so I can describe her someway that makes sense :) just like " I call her a ...."

Personally I do not see any Arab, and this picture just makes me more hesitant to calling her Arab...


... You know what, Im going for Appendix. That's what I see the most. Maybe Appendix with some Thoroughbred back in her lines a bit...

Being her breeding location id say mustang... Most wild mustangs now arent even purebred mustang... They are normally crossed with qh.

As far as posting pictures, when you start a new thread, and you're where you type up your questions, up at the top of the gray box, where you can choose font, size, etc. there will be a white smile and then a paper clip, for attachments. Click on the paper clip and it should bring up a new window where you can browse your folders for the picture you want and then choose it click upload, and then you can post your thread or upload more pictures. Hope that works! Its what I do :) good luck!

you know you might be on to something. After a short research, she does seem to have some mustang characteristics. They tned to be about 14.2, though not specific to that height. Generally sorrel or bay, nothing specially if she is a bay doesn't mean anything. She's muscular though still young, but not overly muscular, she's got the straight back. Usually is off a ways from the the others, though that's not a sign of her bloodlines, just that she's independent ;)
She's about the calmest horse i've been around, and you wouldn't believe how sure-footed she is, not only that but her hooves are hard! I don't think I would ever have to shoe her except for cfd parades. As far as her stamina, my sis and I have have mentioned countless times how much she has, she'll go up to the mtns for a ride, we'll ride for the day and go to untack, and she's still full energy. Again not necassarily relevent to her bloodlines.
But we own three paints (two twin sisters, and a big APAH gelding) and an old bay OTTB and then her. And when comes time to get blacnkets for shows and such the paints get bright blue, sparkling purple, and an american flag for the youngest. But with her I had a hard time finding something, then I realized, she's not flashy like them. When we look at her its 'mtn horse, working horse, etc.' not that flashy has anything to do about it. But from the week I brought her home i've called her the mountain horse, because she gives off the vibe in her looks and build and personality.

Hmmmm. Rant maybe? :) sorry it was almost like something clicked and im like 'you know what? Maybe....'
But I could completely wrong in my comparisions
