POA Mare?

Basically starting this thread for sh*ts and grins. I'm in class with nothing better to occupy myself with. What breed/crosses do you think she is?

Ignore the chain, in these pictures I didn't own her when they were taken.

I don't know anything about POA's, but I would guess 3/4 Appy and 1/4 Arab...maybe even all Appy...

I'm not really seeing a whole lotta POA in her. I'm thinking Appaloosa. How tall is she?

Hmmm, I'd never think Arab. Why do you think she's got Arabian? If you don't mind me asking.

POA's look a lot like Appys. She's just about 14.2hh.

She's just not the typical height for an POA, and doesn't look quite as stout as you see many of them.. though they vary quite a bit. It's entirely possible she's a POA cross-perhaps a heighty Arabian. Or an Appaloosa, Appaloosa/Arabian. POA were bred down from Arabians, QH's, etc to add a little bit of height but are not known for carrying their tails so upright like hers in her trotting pics. She could just be tense in those pics. I have seen some Appaloosas who were definitely influenced by Arabians a lot more than they should have been and had that tail carriage.

Oh, well I was told her mom was a small leopard Appy [have pictures of her actually] and her dad was a fancy POA and they thought that he might have little Morgan in him . But yeah she got her fancy pants trot from her dad. The owners still had her mom and she was a nice mover but nothing really extremely fancy.

Pictures of the mare? Or the daddy? Cause I haven't seen the dad, can't imagine what a Morgan/POA would really look like, ecspecially if he was just a large POA pony with a Morgan head. But then again I always imagine the most ugliest outcome for crosses so I'm pleasantly surprised when they turn out puuurrrdy.

Here's the mare and Annie a few hours after birth

I'd have to vote for POA. Just her look reminds me of my POA gelding, who - might I add - is almost peaking out at 16 hands. But is in fact the foal of two registered POAs. But aside from that, see the similarities:

EDIT: Honestly she looks a lot more like a POA now that I see the first few pics. My Moe is sort of dainty but I know quite a few POAs built a lot like her.
