    It's Driving me nuts!!

    Can anyone tell me what breed you think my horse is. Some people say quarter horse but his head is waaaay too clunky and huge. Some say App but no spots or striped hooves. And someone says Lippizan and he seems to fit that he's got the legs the back and the neck. I love him to death and always will but I've been stumped for 3 and a half years as to what he is.

    Here's his pics
    One in motion




    One at a stand still

    Do you live in NJ by any chance? One of the photos looked like a place I used to ride at.

    I don't really know what he may be...

    In that second picture I see some mottling on the nose (mix of peppered pink and grey skin) and I think I can even see some black skin spots under his white fur on his haunches... and his head size...

    My guess is Appy :p

    Do you have any better pictures of his body? Particularly when wet? That's when those spots will show =) I have known Apps that were born with black spots that actually turned grey as they aged.. No lie! Its the same principle of a black horse greying out, only with the spots! And I have known Appy's-a-plenty with black skin spots, but no dark pigmented hair.

    Miakoda, my mare, is actually half Appaloosa, but you wouldn't know from glancing at her pictures!

    To me... he looks like an arab body and a walking horse head... He COULD be old style QH with a head like that but he doesn't really have a QH body. I'm thinking some type of mix. An appy would have htat QH body style and he really doesnt look like he's got the butt to me...

    I'm going to go w/ maybe an arab/qh/twh cross...

    Appy patterns do not conform to anything. I have some very odd appy patterns. How old is he? I knew that a gray roan appy will sometimes look just like your horse when they get older. Also maybe an appy crossed with something else. My friend has a young appy arab cross that looks a lot like him.

    He looks likme he may have a little Andulusian in him... He's goit the thick legs, large well built head, and the more flat chest and rump... He also has the shorter back. Hope this helps. :O) He sure is gorgious!!!!

    My guess would be an Appaloosa as well. Not all Appys have visible spots.

    Do you have any history of your horse? Is he registered? If so, you can just type it in on allbreedpedigree.com and it should have the breed in the pedigree.
