    This isnt exactly true. There are only a handful of Curlies that I have seen that have some frizzy hair, and even then it's very obvious they are Curlies. (This horse isnt)

    Straight Curlies even have nice smooth hair.

    Of course, every horse is different.

    My guess is this horse has some Appy in her. There is something about her face/eye.

    What's her tail look like?

    I think I saw an Appy- like tail in the last pic, but yes, she definitely has Appy features. Possibly some QH too.

    As for the mane I don't think that has anything to do with her breed. My NSH gelding has a "fluffy" forelock too. It literally looks like someone took a crimper to it. Some horses just have wavy manes.

    Very cute. What happened to her face?

    Or do you even know how she got her scar?

    We have no idea. She came to us with her right side in very poor shape. The skin on her face looked pushed to the side and she had a healing scar that was 8 inches long. Her right chest and front leg were stiff and lame. Her back was stiff and she never moved faster than a slow walk for the first year with us.

    She had enormous knees and tiny teacup feet, so we were worried that her conformation plus injuries would mean she could only be a pasture pet.

    After chiro work and lots of good feed and supplements, she has blossomed into such a beautiful girl! And so tall and thick. She has an enormous heart girth. She is still under muscled on her right front, but it continues to improve. Her butt is still a little skinny, and her neck seems too small too, but I noticed yesterday that it has grown too. Is that normal for a young horse, that the butt and neck grow last?

    Thanks for all the thoughts and help, everyone! I love this forum and the people on it.

    A fuzzy mess if I brush it and dreadlocks if I don't!

    Forgot to include, she also has a black stripe down her back, like a dun.

    I ride a thoroughbred with hair like that. I don't think you can base anything on hair. It would be better to have a conformation shot but I would guess tb or tb cross based on what I see and her size.
