Do apps ALWAYS have the whites showing, or only sometimes? I know all horses do when they look certain ways, but I just want to check my facts here.

I'll try to find a pic of her eyes showing the whites.
Well, personally, I found her head resembled one, so did her neck when she turned her head to look back. She also seems lighter boned, and I found moved more fluidly like an arab

Basically her shoulder and everything ahead of it speaks arab to me. Her rump actually in the video reminds me of an appy or qh

I agree. She looks a little stiff or sore but, to me she moves/floats a lot like an arab, especially in her lope. She has a nice stocky build body-wise a lot like a QH but, her face and movement look arab to me.

Glad I wasn't the only one seeing that. She seemed a bit sore on her feet.
Could be she was just tired and distracted.
Fact is, she's awfully cute and I wouldn't mind having her

I see some QH and some Arab. Sh'es pretty some, but she's not tall enough to be TB and Appy is an obvious no. I'm thinking QH, Arab and there could be something light in there but I'm not 100 % sure

Tb's ,Quarters, Appys all can have a refined head. Arabs usually have a Dished face and very small muzzle. Tbs are common around 15 hands, not all are bred for racing . Many quarters have TB , in them , as well as some Appys.
So I still stick with Quarter horse.. OR quarter Type, might be a better term

A purebred QH of with her color is extremely rare. I am sticking to QH/Arab. Especially given the flea-bitten coloration, I think there is some arab in her by her movement and she does look to me to have some slight dishing in the face. Not overly obvious but. More so than a QH.

Hard to say. Sometimes a crossbred inherits more physical features from one side than the other.

If you look at her head, she definitely has some arab in her somewhere. I don't know anything about quarter horses as they are still not too common in the UK so I can't comment on that. She could have some Connemara in her too, especially with her colouring. No matter what breeds are in her makeup, she looks a super pony. Enjoy her!

Thanks everybody for answering!
Her soreness and stiffness could have been from needing her hooves trimmed too.
I'm not quite sure at how many weeks out from the farrier the video was taken.

Her face is slightly dished, but not overly like arabs typically have.
There's a quarab at my barn, and she looks more arab based on her petiteness.

It could be she just inherited the stocky body from the QH and shoulder to head from the Arab or whatever other breed.

Do either breeds have light feather on their legs? She does have some if that changes anything.

One of her hooves has striping on it, but I'm thinking it's from her white sock (which is only visible when it's wet).

It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough

One more point for quarab: in the video which is obviously from summer, her nose and around the eyes is nearly black. High up towards the eyes, from the nose too. So no hair there. This is something not often seen in non-arab breeds.
