I was kind of thinking Appy as well because of the molting around her underside. She sure is cute!!! How tall is she?

She looks like a rose gray to be, but it's soo hard to tell just from pictures. She's cute!

In the picture of her under saddle your saddle is WAY to far back, I hope you aren't riding her like that because you could cause some back issues.

Was about to say the exact same thing.

She's absolutely adorable. Love the dapples.

yeah i was working fast with the saddle to get a pic but i fixed it. the saddle is usually right at the withers. i measured her the other day and she is exactly 14 hands. still no ideas on breeds though? she isn't registered and i don't even know the people we got her from. but her mom was wild caught and imported in. and they bred the mom and had the baby. but never broke her or anything so she was just a big pet. and was really easy to break. i have been guessing highland pony because of the really thick woolly fur. really long mane and tail. she has pretty big feet for a normal horse. and she has the big pony style head. and she is wide. when i ride her then switch to the quarter horse. the QH feels so skinny! and jsut recently i rode baby bareback i was so proud of her! at first i had to use just a saddle pad because she didn't like the feeling of complete bareback. then i rode without a pad. and she did great. and saturday i rode bareback with a halter. and we just broke her last year. so she is doing amazingly well!! when i get the pictures on my computer of the 18 month old baby i'll need help on his breed as well. we rescued him from a home where he hadn't been fed in over 2 weeks. and wasn't watered in over a month. and the only roughage he had to eat was dead leaves brairs and pine needles. so he is pretty skinny but is starting to pick his weight up.

In no way, shape or form is she Highland.
My friend breeds Highlands in the actual Highlands of Scotlands and none of them have mottling. He's had some crosses in the past and none of them resemble your mare.
I'd say she's Mustang x Appy.
Creme gene maybe.
And Roan.
She is definitely not Highland.
I've seen a lot of funky coloured horses in the states and yours kinda looks Dappled Palomino but Roan aswell.

All breeds will have a thick coat unless clipped or rugged up to the eyeballs.
My Welsh mare has an insane coat this year after the morons who had her on loan starved her and turned her out with no rug.
I'm clipping her soon now she's back in work, but she basically looks like a different horse now because of her coat.
Unless it's got Cushings or it's a Curly horse, coat growth can't determine a horses breed.

I think she may be Dunalino...she's definitely got some dilution going on. She looks like she's got some overo coloring going on as well.

Her dam was wild caught and brought in from where? I too would say MustangXAppy...Mustangs tend to grow long manes and tails,have big solid feet,they also are usually smaller, 14-15 hands...but can grow to 16 as well. appys are pretty stocky. I think she looks like a grey or possibly pali?

i'm not sure where she was brought in from the lady didn't say. but her mom was a sorrel color and thats about all i know. really. this was the first horse we looked at and we got her. because of her easy going attitude. although she is extremely stubborn sometimes. and doesn't like going into a canter much. but i have seen her flat out run in the pasture and she CAN get up and go if she wants to lol

here are some more pictures when we got back from riding. she is tied to the tree to cool down from the ride because she was sweating. and yeah in a couple of the pictures her feet look a little long. but this was the day before the farrier came out to put shoes on them. (before we went barefoot)

i also wanna ask yours guys opinion on Barefoot Trimming. we are making the transition to barefoot atm. so far Baby has been barefoot for a month now. and i am pretty sure her foot are going to be fine barefoot because she has wonderfully sturdy and hard feet. but i still want your opinions and expirences with Barefoot.

That marking on her face says grey and white pinto to me. My friend had one. You can only tell they're pinto when you get them wet:) As for breed, her head looks QH but the butt looks like something gaited such as a Paso Fino or something.
