Talking Okay, here is a challenge. WHAT IS SHE?!?!

Okay, so I used to have this cute little bay pony mare. Sheba was a little over 13 hands ( I don't remember if that counts as a pony or not lol), very stocky, probably because she was so overweight. She had HUGE, ugly feet, bigger than my 16.2 geldings feet. Oh, and she was gaited. She had this long, big TWH like gait. Here are some pics.

Ooo a hard one! Lol
A friend of mine had a QHX with some Belgian in her who looked almost identical. She was only 14.2hh, which is the standard limit for ponies.
As for your girl, if she's gaited my guess would be a cross with a type of Morgan, simply because they are a bit stockier than TWH or Saddlebreds. Morgans i've been told also tend to have really nice feet.
Possibly with some QH in there too...

I always thought she had a little Morgan in her, but I wasn't sure. She was just a big random chunk of horse!!! She was a fun little horse, she never had a slow gait. She couldn't do a lope, it was always a gallop. She couldn't do an easy trot, it was always a "weeee I'm a standardbred!" kind of thing!

If she was gaited, I highly doubt she was part Morgan. The vast majority of Morgans are not gaited, and the ones that are don't come cheap. She honestly doesn't look at all Morgan to me. I just see a stock type grade pony.. nothing in particular that points to anything other than stock horses. I see nothing Morgan or what have you.

She looks mustang to me. The released a lot of drafts into the wild herds in Oregon, way back in the 20's and before, and so you will see mustangs with clear draft heritage. She is mighty downhill.

I would say mustang as well.

I agree with the mustangy look. There are a decent amount of 'stangs that are gaited from having TWH, STB, and other gaiteds in their lineage.

Looks pretty much like a mustang to me...

I was going to say "mustang" even before I saw everyone else said mustang, lol!

I own a 14.3 Mustang who is built like a tank. Very chunky and stout, like a shrunken down Belgian. He has big bones and feet which I LOVE.

There is nothing wrong with big feet. They are usually healthier and sounder than tiny feet. When shopping for a trail horse, I consider good bone and larger feet a PLUS.
