    Question what breed is my horse?

    So.. I bought a horse almost a year ago...
    And I know she have appaloosa in her, for 100%...
    But the owner she had before me said that she's a QH..
    Now I know she's an appy by her coat color, but Idk what she's mixed with..
    And I don't really know much about the breed strucher and stuff.. so I hoped you guys could help me, she's about 12 years old.

    Thanks all for helping :)

    Yep, her colour and her mane definitely scream "appaloosa". She does have somewhat QH conformation and apps are commonly crossed with quarters so it is very likely she is appaloosa x QH. Beautiful horse!

    She's beautiful. While I think AppyXQH is likely it is also possible she is full Appy since some are like that (can have a lot of QH blood and still be considered an Appaloosa). I mean in theory she could be some obscure cross (as could any of these guesses) but I agree with the others.

    Again, pretty pretty girl. Love her look. Interested how her stifles kept some color too while other spots are more washed out, her hips for example are completely white, looks like traditional varnish with one or two funky spots lol.

    I agree with Yogiwick in that she could be all apply. She is very downhill and a bit back at the knee.

    Did you roach her mane ? Or is it always that length? I did not see the mottled skin and sclera that goes with Appys , She could be a quarter horse , roan , that is slowly turning 'grey'.
    They can get some odd patterns at times. I did not see where the OP was asking for a critique.

    I did cut her mane..
    And she does have the mottled skin in the muzzle area, you just can't see it in the pictures :)
    Here's a pic of her head:

    She is a varnish roan. Grey does not look like that. See how the color is retained in specific (bonier) areas? She will get lighter as she ages but not like grey does. She definitely has the leopard gene, and not all horses will have every single trait they need I think 3 traits to qualify as an Appaloosa. That said she has the traits and is definitely leopard from that color alone.

    I want her!
