What bread is my horse

Hi I recently bought a 2yr old mare, as you can see she did not have much attention (these were taken right when we paid for her)
I was told she is a Hackney x Trotter, she is 2yr old exactly and13/13.2 (not had chance to measure properly yet)

She is black with hint red/brown although still losing winter coat, white star, 1 white hoof, not sure how else to describe her.

She is very well behaved, if that's correct way to say it, and quite affectionate, let me handle and groom her, apart from feet but working on that.

I've lead her on lead rein but not got her to trot yet sp not sure how she raises her feet, she walks quite pretty but not with the high held head/curved neck of a hackney. Also tail doesn't sit raised.

No way of finding out about parents so can't trace her back.

I just want to know so I know best way to train/handle her and Los to work out height she'll grow to/weight she'll hold for riding when she's old enough.

Will try to add my pics (not sure how from iPad???)

Thanks in advance xx

Sounds like wheat bread. Or maybe pumpernickel. :P (jk)

MY first thought was wheat, I have to agree.

It's hard to judge without pictures, so I'll just wait til we get some. :)

As I said this was when I literally got her, she is looking a LOT happier and cleaner now

I think she's what she's said to be-a hackney/ trotter. I'm not familiar with either of these breeds, other than the general knowledge, but I'm assuming they have gaits, so you could see if she moves like one. The more I look at her though, the more convinced I am that she is a hackney/ trotter. Good luck with her!

Be careful of that long lead. Those cute little fluffy legs might get tangled up in it.

Sorry to OP....I am sure you didn't mean to misspell breed.

Looks to have the hackney an trotter in her. I agree with the pic having her tie on a long rope is asking for trouble its a good way for either her to get her legs all tangled up and possible break a leg or if so9mething spooks her and she runs if neither rope halter or the post gives she's going to end up with a broken neck or pulled. She's a cutie. Good luck

Haha Bread!!!
No she's not kept on long rope, this was my collecting her so they had her tied up and grazing ready for me to load her, we have a huge field which she roams and grazes in during the day with our 3 goats, although she is definitely the boss already even after a few days

Yes I think she is a hackney/trotter, I asked my partner to lead her while I stood back to watch and when he got her to trot I could defo see the characteristics..

Thank you for your opinions very grateful, and for your concern on my beautiful girl
