    Question The infamous "What is she??" question

    **I first posted this under critique but I don't have confo shots yet, so I'm re-posting here. Sorry!**

    In about six weeks, I'm going to be able to start riding again! *happy dance* I'm leasing an eight year old (rescue) mare, and the owner is going to start training me for barrels. The first three pictures I have of her are not great pictures in terms of trying to figure out her breed(s), but for now, they're all I have. I've asked the owners for confo shots of her, so when (if) I get them, I'll update this thread. Something about her is telling me she could be a draft cross...?

    Hard to tell by the shots you posted. No doubt in my mind there is paint in there, as for draft? Not sure, if you can get us better pictures?

    How tall is she?

    Yes def, some paint, but since she isn't registered, it would be safe to call her a pinto. Looks like she has a pretty high wither, which makes me think more towards thoroughbred, but she is rather stocky built, so, maybe she is an appendix pinto =]

    I think it's her stockiness and barrel-like body that made me lean towards draft, but I do agree with the paint. The owners haven't returned my email yet, but hopefully, they will soon so I can shed some more light on this pretty girl :)

    Quarter horse build, pinto markings. Pretty girl,though!

    Well considering all Paints pretty much come for QH or TB background, I would say some TB in her. She looks too leggy or high-withered for a QH. She is pretty though. :)

    She looks to me like a Paint (QH build, Pinto color)
    Many paints are built like her, I don't see any draft but the pictures aren't the best for guessing.
    Since she is grade she's technically a pinto.

    She just looks like a really nicely built Paint horse; you might be able to register her as Pinto, based on her color alone. I like her, good luck with her

    Mystery solved!! She is APHA registered. She shows in halter, barrels, and pleasure. I'm so excited to meet her next month that I'm about to fall off the couch haha The owners are taking new pictures of her today, so I'll post them as soon as I get them. Thanks, everyone, for your input!
