This is beauty she's a 4 year old mare that I am currently buying off of the owners, she's stationed at my place right now since the owners had her in a pasture with metal glass and other junk, the owner agreed to station her at my house. I didnt get a chance to ask what the breed was but I figured she looks like she's got a bit of Quarter horse and arabian in her. (most mixed breeds do have quarab in them lol just not all) but I thought I would ask some more breed knowledgeable people what they thought :)

Also yes I am aware that all anyone can do is guess without a pedigree :) so yeah lol its okay I wont take your word for it but what do you think?

A lot of horses will turn their tail up when excited. Heck we had a car come through our pasture and our standardbred pop his tail up with the best of the best and raced up and down the fence line. There is more to the arabian breed than tail set and many other features would be present in your mare ie a more refined and dished head, tippy ears, a shorter back along with the tail set. I would guess quarter horse the muscling suggests something stock-horseish and maybe maybe a draft in the past just something in the first pic gives that vibe.

A few horses at my barn (a ah and a paint) will curl their tails over their backs when they get really excited.
