I don't know what other horse she could be other than arabian...I mean this whole time I'm thinking full quarter horse--but always thought she runs kinda fancy lol, as in her tail goes up most of the time...not always. But I see more quarter horse than anything...

My initial thoughts based on the stills only was TB.

Mls-your comment about a line of reiners resembling arabs puzzles me. Reiners typically have their tail set a bit low, not high like an arab, and I have to say, looking thru my NRHA journal every month-nothing could be further from my mind than "gee they look like arabs". Unless, of course they ARE the arabs who do rein also, just like all horses can, or Quarabs. I think MOST people think of QH's as reiners. JMHO.

Well after watching some vids of cross breeds on youtube...I think just maybe she is quarter horse with some morgan. I still think when I look at her, quarter horse. But yep, its obvious--not 100%. My second thought would be arabian. TB? Lol, I don't think she's "leggy" enough like TBs tend to be...but she could very well be--I was looking up so many different horses today heck, they all start to look the same! Lol

Well, QH, and maybe morgan. But I do see TB in her too.

And just food for thought, when my spanish mustang/curly mix gets riled up, his tail shoots up into the air too. Arches his neck and looks all fancy and gets this fancy prance that gives him some hang time in the air. He doesn't have Arabian in him, maybe way, way, way, way, way back but certainly not within the first 5 generations.

I own a registered AQHA gelding and he'll flag his tail when he's rip snorting around, so the fact that her tail is up is inconsequential. Her actual tail set and croup is not Arab at all. I'm actually thinking she's got some TB in her, especially because of her barrel and loin connection and the upsweep underneath, classic TB. The dish? Sorry don't see much of one at all to say Arab. I've had a couple QH's with the same "slight" dish, and they were registered AQHA.

Thanks for explaining why she looks tb...I couldnt see why...I kinda see it now after you explained it--and the flagging of the tail...I actually did find that out that all breeds do it for certain reasons some more than others...I actually like it --gives her character and I find it charming? Lol hard to explain...but thanks for clarifying that for me :)

Here's a pic of when I first got her...
A friend of mine argued she had to be tb or have some in her, ofcourse at the time I wasn't aware of anything else other than quarter horse. May not know what that missing link is...but one things for certain...she looks quarter horse more than anything. Thanks guys for yalls opinions and ideas helped me out a lot :)
