Is this a real breed?

This horse is a rescue at the farm I volunteer and board my horse at. She is not mine. Her owners said her breed was called a "Happy Horse".
I'm not a horse expert and I know there are a lot of breeds out there but after doing research I found no evidence that such a breed exists. It sounds made up (and stupid) to me. She looks like an appy/appy cross. What do you guys think?

Not the best pic, sorry

Someone is having a little fun with you/taking liberties with "breed" names. I think it's a cute breed name.

She was probably just making a joke, since she does have appy in her. Appy is one letter off of Happy.

Heres some more recent pics of her cleaner. The first pic isn't flattering at all. She's a really pretty girl

I think (and someone here will correct me if I'm wrong) that is a horse shows a certain number of Appaloosa characteristics such as the striped hooves, skin spots and coat spots, they're considered Appaloosas, period.

So a half Appy that shows enough of the breed characteristics is an Appy, period. And she certainly has the skin spots!

But I like the idea of a "Happy Horse"; I'd just run with the joke.

I had an App that looked very much like her and she was a wonderful horse.
