What breed?

She came to me as a Belgian, of course she is not :)
She is 3 years old and 15hh. I've got a guess as to what I'll call her breed but curious what others think.

She is very refined. Her legs are much smaller than the Paint gelding she is standing next to and he is 150 pound under weight.

New image I see you are in Northern Michigan too. Did you perchance get her in the Cheboygan area?

No, but I know who you are referring to.
This filly and a gelding (more info and pictures on the pictures forum) are training prospects for some of the girls here.

I think she looks like a Belgian cross as well... her head and neck are what make me think that. She's only 3, right? She has plenty of growing to do, so I wouldn't rule out Belgian being in there just yet.

Personally I think she looks kinda morgan to me. She has some height to her though. Her butt shape looks like my belgian cross. Belgians are a slow maturing breed so it is possible she is a cross and will thicken up with age.

I haven't ruled it out, I see some in her as well but not much. The photos make her look thicker than she is. The only thing I see Belgian is her color and some traits to her head.

I've trained two belgian/QH crosses that looked very much like this horse. Funny, they both retained the belgian coloring also.
