She definitely has the classic Arabian tail set! I don't know many other breeds that lift their tails quite like an Arab :) She actually looks very similiar body structure wise to my Arabian/Quarter Cross. My mare is registered 1/2 Arab but has way more Arab in her recent lineage than she has QH. My mare has a very dishy face for a cross, but body shape is very similiar to your girl.

looks like a chunky arab. Today when people think arab they think of the buldgy forhead,dish faced arab.

thank you everyone, no freeze brand on her neck, so shes not mustang, i am pretty sure she is the old blood Arabian i have been looking at alot of info and photos of the older blood and she fits that the most :)

I think her head and face definitely have some QH characteristics. I'd stick with Quarab too. Pretty girl though

Arabians used to use freeze branidng a lot. Not so much anymore, but if you get one who is freeze branded it makes it easy to find out who they are.

The way she runs, and the way she holds her tail screams Arabian, but her head and structure doesn't resemble Arabian. She defiantly has some in her, but shes not a pure bred, for sure.

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

I just wanted to comment on the lack of dished face-that absolutely does not rule out being purebred! I'm a groom that works at an Arabian barn and have been to many shows on the Arabian circuit this year, not all purebreds have that super dishy face. I'm not real knowledgable about the older style Arabs, so can't comment on that, but I could definitely see her being a purebred based on the trotting pictures. That screams Arabian to me!

She is very well built. Dreamcatcher, I'd never heard of a Roman-nosed Arabian. =/ However, I have noticed many breeders have bred that out of very servicable breeds, particularly QH's and Northern warmbloods. Here is picture of "Corporal", (1982-2009, RIP) He wasn't registered, but he was an Arab, nonetheless.
