Could she have some haffie in her or any small draft?

Behold the cutest,most sweetest mustang on this planet.

BUTTERCUP!

I was curious on wether or not she may have some sort of draft in her.I'm thinking maybe she has some haffie in her. She came from Oregon and in different parts come different types of mustangs. I have a friend who has a mustang and she looks to have saddlebred in her and she told me that where she was captured there were saddlebreds in the herd or something close to that.
This might be something I have to take to the department downtown to see.

I hope this makes sense.

Buttercup is a stout 14.2 hands even,flat back,very full and round rumpous. HUGE hooves! The back are striped and the front are ribboned. She does have a dent in her side and she came that way we we got her. We're guessing it's from her getting kicked at some point. She has a very thick mane and you have to trim it every week where her bridle path goes due to the fact that if you let it go she looks like she is sporting a mohawk Here are the most recent photos we have of her.











With today's wild mustangs there are no such thing as a true mustang besides the Przewalski's Horse. Most mustangs have been those who were turned loose,gotten free,or born in the wild.

Omg she is SOOO CUTEE! Wish I could take her haha! >.<

And sorry I can't help with guessing her breed, but she looks a little too small and not thick to be a haffie or have haffie in her.

Anyways, she's adorable :)

IMHO, many of the mustangs born today have some draft somewhere in their lineage. She looks more Belgian-y to me than she does haffy. Cute girl and she looks like a real sweetie.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

She is a sweetheart. You can go into the pasture and jump on her and she will take you to the gate all the way from the back.It's really fun...except when she wants to chase a horse than you better bail,lol.

She use to be fat. She has slimmed down a lot. We have to keep a muzzle on her due to the fact that she gains weight so easily.

I thought maybe she had some type of draft. The vet said QH,buuut I don't see it.

LOL, Dobe has been mistaken for a QH a lot of times too, but I think he looks more like a mini-percheron than anything.

in some of his pictures he looks a bit QH-ey but in other pictures his face looks percheron-y. I know a perch and he has the face shape as one in some pictures..does he have a bit of a roman nose?

Maybe just a touch. It isn't really obvious, but he doesn't have the typical "flat", delicate face of a QH.
