What breed could she be?!?!!

my father recently bought a beautiful horse; she had no papers, we have no idea what breed or age, many people have a good guess. Some have said she was aged some where between 8 years to 16 years, and breed wise no one has a clue. Would love to get some other thoughts, Harmony has been up and down since we got her back in september this year, most days she will not let anyone near her, and then randomly she will show up and let you come up close, she has made great friends with our other two horse and seems to look after them both, as one is only 12months old and the other a little Shetland Pony who is about 8 years. Any thoughts would be great. People have been saying that she is pregant

Any assistance would be awesome..

Thanks in advance

Christine

Where are you located? That will help with the breed guesses.

And please tell me her feet have been drastically trimmed since that first photo was taken...

Does she have a neck brand?

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I see Standardbred in her, or maybe Thoroughbred. If she's not branded, then she probably isn't a full standy.

Yeah they noticed it after the photo was taken; he now has a new one that fits; that was the day we got them back in september.. they had just arrived from the sale yard, they still have their sale numbers and havent been cleaned yet. but its the best one i have a harmony at the moment as she has been moody since we got her; but it seems that she maybe pregnant, so she has been hiding and not wanting to many people near her, but yesterday she was closer than she has been before so she is starting to be more confident around us. When she had her feet done the guy believed that before we got her she had been mistreated and has had very little human contact so she was spooked, now we just have to get her so we can get the vet out to see if she is pregnant or not, but many people believe that she is.

I can't say anything about the pregnant part, but my guess is tb or standardbred cross.

You're in Australia, though, so I'm not sure what types of horses are most common... if that makes sense. I would look into the different horses that are most common where you live, and compare them to her conformation and gaits.
