I completely agree. I have seen registered QH that are pony sized. Also if she was that underfed it would stunt her growth some. Also she might be younger than the previous owners said. If they can't feed her they might not keep track of her age any better.

I am also voting for a gray TB that was stunted by malnutrition. Her face is gorgeous and it is too bad that she didn't get the proper care so that she could have grown into what she should have been. :,,(

I'm going to go way off the current TB trend and say a Walker cross. At least that's what I see.

I actually agree with Aussie. When I first saw her, the first thing I thought of was a TWH. She seems to have the gaited conformation, although that could definitely be from the awkwardness of being young and so neglected.

As for size, believe it or not, I knew some people who bought a registered Thoroughbred gelding off the track. He'd blown both his front tendons, and I kid you not, he wasn't even 15hh as an adult. Smallest TB I'd ever seen, I darn near wouldn't have believed it if it weren't for the papers. So their ARE some small ones out there, and as everyone else said, malnutrition can do awful things to young horses.

So I don't think you'd be totally off in considering her a TB. She definitely has the refined lines to be so.

Better Pictures Added

We took a few better photos in the light of her as current.

She's a gorgeous mover and her goofy athletic playful personality is identical to my TB colt (well.. four year old). From knowing her I am positive she is not a Tenn Walker.

I can see the TB in her but being "just shy of 15hh" is normal, being "just barley 14hh" has me stumped yet however I agree I am sure she has been stunted. She has in fact grown a bit since she's been here. Her age is also vet confirmed correct, she is three.

Definitely a gray, I adore that gunmetal color on a horse and she certainly is a looker. She looks so much better now that she has filled out some and shed her winter hair. Plus, being only 3, she has the opportunity to grow a lot more. My mustang Koda sprouted another 2 inches tall after I started riding him; and he was 5 . LOL

I love that color. She's beautiful!

She looks grey to me too. If she were a true blue roan, her face wouldn't be greying.

And she looks TB to me, too. I agree with whoever said that she looks like she should be taller but suffered from malnutrition as a foal. It looks that way to me too.

I would say she's a tb X or Race Qh with that build .. my friend has a filly that had health issues as a youngster and she was stunted well cared for but wow she's a small thing at 7 she's maybe 14.2 and both her parents are over 15 hands and stocky built soo it can happen even to the well cared for.. any ways she's adorable and I comend you on rescueing her its getting rare to see people will and able to rscue horses with the economy
