    Guess the breed of my 2!

    I may have asked before, but let's try !
    I have 2 grade horses. I am unsure of their lineage or history.
    What do you think they are? Im interested in your opinions please :)

    Let's begin with Misty. I THINK she is an AppaloosaX.
    She is about 17hh, and 17 yrs old.
    Here are her pictures:






    Her daughter Sheba (when Misty was bred to a sorrel QH--we were uneducated at the time...and young. We sold Misty to a professor and kept Sheba. Later in life we decided to buy Misty back bc of her reliability):









    Her son:

    And then we have Oliver.He is approx 5 yrs old and just at 14hh. He is "fun sized". I bought him in November. Ollie has more of a narrow build, and a I've been told he is a Spanish mustang X by many people bc of his narrow chest and sloping hips. He is also very hardy, and an easy keeper. I adore this little guy and I plan on having both of my horses for the rest of their lives.

    Hmmm.
    I think Misty could easily be a full-blooded appy. She's got the conformation, mane and tail, white around the eyes, looks like she has mottled skin and some spots.

    I agree that Misty definitely looks appy, maybe appy/qh.
    For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head when I saw Oliver was arab/paint. Lol.
    You have lovely horses!

    I don't know about Oliver, but Misty seem that she could be either a pure Appaloosa or an Appy/QH cross, as said above.

    At 17hhs, MIsty would be really tall for a pure Appy. I wonder if she has some thoroughbred or warmblood. There is a "draft" like quality about her.

    She is a lovely horse and threw some nice offspring.

    Just want to say Sheba is gorgeous. The others are too, but I'm in love with Sheba
