I know NOTHING about Lacy - Age/Breed/Build help!

I have No idea about this horses background. She came to me from a neglectful owner about 2 weeks ago. All I know is that the owners said she was 5, she isn't registered, and she was ridden by their 5 year old granddaughter.

She has a large head and legs but a really tiny body, but that may be because she needs to gain some weight. She does carry her tail a littler higher than my horses, but not extremely high.

I know she is a PAINT but I want something more breed specific... My friend who got me in contact with the owners who gave her up said that she was an American Indian Pony... whatever that is.

Any age/conformation/breed help would be awesome.

What might she excel at? What do you guys think she would be good at?

Unless she is of Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred breeding she would be a Pinto, not a Paint.
As for breed...she looks like a mix of some sort, possibly with some Arab in her

A Paint must be either Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred to be registered. A Paint is a breed, just like QH, Thoroughbred, Arabian.
Pinto is a color, they also have their own registy, but it is based on color, not breed.
There is probably an American Indian Pony registry, there are plenty of weird registries out there to register almost any horse.

SWince many Colonial Spanish horses are registered with the AIHR, it's a possibility she could be one....Many of them are built like this too...

I don't think she is American Indian. She is a little too big.

How tall is she? American Indian Horses range a fair bit in height and overall conformation. I believe the average is between 13 & 15hh

Hello! I agree with some of the others that your horse is a pinto, not a paint. I am certain she has a fair amount of Arabian blood. In some ways I am cheating because pretty much all light (non-draft) breeds have Arabian blood in them, but her legs, high tail, hindquarters, large eyes & nostrils, round jaw and fine muzzle give her away. This is a good thing. I predict she will be wonderful horse for you! I'm sure she is very happy to have you as an owner. And if you can substantiate that either her sire or dam are purebred Arabian (certainly possible) you may be able to get Half-Arabian papers for her. In addition, I'm pretty sure the Pinto Association would let you register her as well.... in case you are interested in doing that.

Well, pinto. I've always called spotted horses paints so its just a general term I've never broken haha.

She is probably about 15 hands, and I kind of saw Arab in her too, just because she is smaller with long thick legs.

I don't think I can find out her sire or dam, they didn't know anything at all about her:(

You can rib or mouth her for age. If you don't know how find someone in the area to do so.

Not sure I would worry about registering her as without background or age. The papers are just papers without any info. When I buy a registered horse I am buying it to know the age, lineage and breed I am buying. If you don't even have a year it is just a guess and you may as well leave the horse grade. Just my opinion of course :)
