I need opinions on what breed my horse is.

Hello, my horse a 26 year old mare. Her name is Flicker. I've had her for about 8 years now. For a while now I've been wanting to know what her breed is! A lot of people told me she looks like a Quarter Horse/ Belgian. I would like to see what your thoughts on it.

Thank you!










(^^ Sorry that its too big)





I can post more pictures soon if that is not enough! :)

To me she looks like a draft mixed with a paint (not her colour.. the build)

But I suck at picking out breeds so take it lightly haha!

She looks quarter, foundation type, but then she could also be Morgan, or have a bit of draft in there . Paint is a Color breed and was started for quarter horses that had to much white to registered as quarter horse.
Pinto is a cross breed multi color, Appaloosa is a color breed, Palamino ,Bucksin and Albino are a few more color breeds..
The basic Body shapes are TB, Warmblood (tb draft cross) Draft, Arab, Quarter. Pony under 14 hands.

stevenson, Thank you haha! I agree she does look very good for her age and doesn't act her age as well!

And thank you guys!! I agree with her having a draft in there. Especially a Belgian. Her feet are pretty big. Not huge. She stands around 14.5 hands high.

Ah how wrong you are. Paint is a breed, sure a lot of them have white patterns, but that is not the breed standard. There are plenty of Paints that have no white at all.

Pinto does not mean a cross bred. Every Paint that has a white pattern is also a pinto. Pinto refers ONLY to the horse's colour, not to their breeding.

Appaloosa, again, is a breed that can have the appaloosa colouring, but there are plenty of Appaloosas that don't have spots. There are also other breeds that have the appaloosa colour pattern, which is still called appaloosa even though they aren't Appaloosas (note the capital A for the breed, non capital for the colour).

Palomino, buckskin and albino are not breeds. They are colours. Well, palomino and buckskin are, albino is just not anything. They started the albino registry years before anyone understood the cream gene and how it works, and so they stuffed double creams in there, thinking they were albino. But they aren't.

Go back and find out HOW the paint became a breed. Colored quarter horses, and back in the original , it had to be colored to be a paint , a certain amt of white. Then they allowed solid horses as breeding stock.. Same for Appys..
