    I"m trying to remember the conformation things she told me.... I may have to ask.
    She looks like she's got a little quarter in her though from her head, and the fact you said she doesn't have the full tail twist. If she was that old, and papered, it would be perfectly acceptable for her breeder to call her full arab. As I had said, there could be up to half of another breed, and still be called an arab on the papers.

    I'm guessing the "breeder" you bought her from didn't have papers on her? Was she ever registered? She doesn't look full Arab to me. I was also thinking she had a Quarter-ish look to her.

    I've seen Arabs (as well as any horse) all over the spectrum as far a discipline goes. Which breed's are not as intelligent as an Arab? Or have a worse attitude?

    I didn't mean to offend anybody with that... I've met plenty of intelligent non-Arabs and I never meant to say that they, or she, have a bad attitude.
    Most of the Arabians I've come in contact with, which I must admit, aren't that many, have had a very alert, but kind way of doing their stuff. I'm not saying a different breed can't be like that, I've just met a higher percentage of Arabs that are like that.

    She doesn't have papers and her previous owner (her breeder) didn't give me any information on her sire and dam.

    That's interesting about the pink skin... I don't think she has any, at least on her face she doesn't. Actually her hind fetlocks are pink skinned...

    I had to think about it, and look at her side shot a good long while to remember more, and it looks to me that she doesn't break down build wise like an arab. Not a bad thing. I had a great Arab/Quarter/Morgan cross as a kid, and she was a great horse. As far as the coloring when she was born - horses can be born any color and turn grey. I've seen chestnuts & bays turn grey by the time they were 7 or 8. That Grey gene is kinda cool - and sneaky.

    She's a cute mare. There are such variances in all breeds as far as the confo goes, that she might very well be. To me she doesn't quite as fine boned as most purebreds I have seen and there is something about her shoulder and neck that screams something other than arabian.

    I have seen some draft crosses that looked nothing like draft, and that goes with a lot of other breeds I have seen as well.

    She's a gorgeous little thing either way.

    I agree, I don't think she's 100% arab, but you can see the arab in her.

    I have no doudt in the world that she's not!

    She does look arab to me but she looks more like the older style arabs, not the more refined show arabs you find these days. She is a cutie.

    She doesnt look arabian to me, arabians have black skin and distinctive head shape and high tail carriage, all arabs carry there tail high when running, they are also hot horses, very spirited.They also have short backs and very large nostils for their little faces.Look at the one in my avatar or I'll try to post one here.

    I think she looks like an arab...more of the polish side of arabians.
