Thats the first thing that came to my mind too! She looks like a TWH or similar type of gaited breed crossed with something to me. She may be a TWH/Arab cross, that is popular around where I am, dunno about the rest of the world. The arab would give her more of the refined look as well.

Red face

I would "guess" an appendix, maybe ? lol regardless, GRATZ to you bringing her back from the brink - she does have the blue tint but I cannot tell if shes roan lol - Im just useless on this one - she is easy on the eye no matter her stats ;)

I have no idea what type of horse she is, but I must say she is beautiful and you've done a wonderful job getting her back in shape. Her coat looks beautiful!

Thats what I was going to say, I think she's got an Arab butt. LOL But I don't see it in the face that much. I would say arab/quarter because of her height too. While she is short now, some horses don't quit growing until 10 yrs of age! So she could surprise you and start/continue growing in height until she catches up to what she should be at.

Wonderful Job!! Love what you've done, I wish I could do rescue.. hopefully in the future!

That's the very first thing I thought of when I saw her, but then I noticed people saying TB and Appendix, so I figured I was just imagining things. But I really see TWH in her.

But Arab? No, I don't see that at all. And being a huuuuuge Arab fan, I can spot them a mile away every time, even partbred. I can't be sure, of course, but I'm pretty darn certain.

I think she looks TWH Cross.. I definantly thought that when I saw the pic of her in a walk. She has a gaited build and looks to have somewhat of a TWH head.. I agree with above poster that she looks to TWHXArab..I also agree that she is grey not blue roan.. she has greying on her face.. but still very pretty.

She's definitely a gray, like others have said. I also agree that she's atleast part Thoroughbred, possibly Anglo or Appendix.

You can pretty much guess.. at whatever you want.. but the fact of the matter is.. is that she's a rescue.. there's no registration.. no background known.. so nobody knows.. and chances are you'll never know what she is.. you can guess.. but there's no hard evidence that she is a thoroughbred x or a twh x.. she could be a standardbred cross.. or quarter horse.. or morgan.. I do see arabian.. but you never know.. she may not even be any of those things.. she could be something.. that nobody would even guess.. because there is parantage known.. I've seen a horse that was thought to be standardbred..or morgan.. when in fact the horse was a TWH.. Ive seen horses that were thought.. to be a quarter horse.. when in fact it was a thoroughbred.. my old horse Teddy was a Rocky Mountain Horse.. fullblooded.. but he looked amazingly like a quarter horse.. and I had to tell people that he was infact a rocky mountain..
