    I don't see Haflinger either SUJ. Maybe QH but it's rather hard to tell as she isn't muscled up. She is a bit flatter over the rump, kinda makes me think Morgan?

    There is a feeling of Haflinger or Norwedian Fjord. Why? Well, the coloration of her tail , with the dark underhairs, and the flatness of her back and croup and the large belly all have a draftlike feel. But otherwise , I'd say quarter horse.

    People try to tell me she's a draft cross but I saw one of those at an auction yesterday and they are huge! Big head and all she just has a roman nose. But I was told by a trainer she looks kinda like a wimpy quater horse which I took as an insult until she explained lol. And I don't think she's a haflinger only because I am around them all the time and the only thing that would make me think that she is half haflinger would be the fact that she's palomino but yall are answering me so yall tell me what you think please!(: thanks for all the answers so far...

    She doesn't look like a haflinger to me at all. Even her color is wrong since haflingers are flaxen chestnut - not palomino.

    My friend has a Quarab that looks very similar in the body structure, just the head is a bit different.

    She just looks like a QH to me (if she is indeed registered, otherwise I wouldn't rule out a QH cross)

    I know this other question has nothing to do with the main question but if any of yall are barrel racers is it a good thing when they get hopped up when im riding trying to teach her to go around them?

    I definitely see haflinger in her, but I doubt she'd be purebred... do you know how old she is? Mustang sounds likely too, and she could be registered mustang.

    If she is halflinger how is she as tall as she is I am around a lot of haflingers and not one of them is over 14 hands. But I thought she was mustang for a long time but I was told that if she was a mustang then shed have a tattoo?

    Not if she wasn't a BLM mustang. Like I said I don't see Haflinger at all. Neither does Cat and she owns Haflingers like I do. She could very well be a crossbreed. You never know because you don't have papers for her. Someone can say a horse is registered when it's not. Or they could be a registered crossbreed.

    I wouldn't guess Haflinger, but I haven't seen much of them in person- just a couple at shows here and there.

    I can tell you without a doubt that there is nothing Fjord-y about her.

    I'd agree with the assessment that she's very likely a QH, but might also be a Mustang.
