Help needed in identifying horse breed

Hi all,

I just signed up here and I am a brand new proud horse owner

A few weeks ago this guy sold my father a horse and her foal. And since we hardly know anything about horses I've been searching, reading and watching videos to learn as much as I can about them. I've always been fascinated by horses and finally I've had the opportunity to own one (actually two). Anyway enough talking. I was just hoping if any of you could help me out in identifying the breed of the mother from these pictures I took. This is Foxy and her foal Thunder :)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum, Reyaah! Your new horses are very pretty :)
May I ask what kind of feed they have in those photos?
The mare looks a little bit on the older side, looks like her front legs are pretty roughed up, poor girl. I haven't a clue as to what breed to guess unfortunately.
Please feel free to PM me with any questions you might have regarding horse care - I know it can be a bit daunting at first!

The mare looks a little bit Standardbred-ish to me. Don't know why, but that's the first thing that popped into my head.

Ditto ^^

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

My first thought was Standy as well. If not purebred, certainly a cross.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
