What Breed(s) Do You Think She Is?

So yesterday I got another horse who used to be owned by my cousin. She called us and said that the horse was only about an hour drive away and the current owners no longer could keep her.

She is around 20 years old, I was told. I was also told that she is a Morgan. This confuses me because I would have to say that she looks more like an Arab. Excuse the quality of the photos, they were taken in the rain. (This horse seems to be also rather shy, so I couldn't get that close to her.)

She could very well be a Morgan. Doesn't look like an Arab to me. There is no definitive dish to her profile. There may even be a touch of QH in there somewhere..

Really? I'm not all that great with horse breeds, but I was just comparing her to some other Morgans I've seen in my life. In person she gave me more of a Arab vibe, but maybe that is just me. She looks so different from all of my other horses I wasn't sure what to think.

Does the roan color exist in Morgans? I know it's not in Arabs.

Looks like a mutt horse to me. Could be some sort of gaited X QH mixture.

Is she gaited? Her tail sets in very high and she has a flat rump, much like my friend's Paso mare. That's what I thought immediately when I saw her. However, when you said Morgan, I think that fits as well. When you isolate her neck and face, she looks very much like a Morgan.

Not anymore.. unless this IS the last roan older Morgan mare whose idiot owners refuse to allow her eggs to be collected even though it is the ONLY WAY we could get the color to stay in the breed.. but I think the possibility of this mare being that same mare are very slim.. that roan mare has a star and snip. The only other roan Morgan is a gelding..

My guess? Some sort of cross. Eyes are not Morgany at all. Head could be Morgan but not a typey one.. the halter is really making it difficult to judge her head much. Her head does remind me of gaited breeds..

I could see her being part Morgan, but I don't know what breed the roan could have come from. Maybe she's a TWH cross.. they have roans..

I've never heard someone refer to a grade horse as a "mutt". I seemingly find that a bit offensive as many horses whom are grade are well rounded horses.

As for the horse, no she doesn't look like an Arab like stated before. I'm also going to agree she probably does have quarter horse somewhere in her lines.

I have very limited experience with Morgans, really only been around/ridden a gaited Morgan mare and she was an old timey almost drafty looking mare. However, I looked at a few big breeders sites and I would say it's totally possible she is at least part Morgan.

The word mutt is only offensive if you make it so.

It is a pretty good descriptor of a mixed breed animal.

I take it offensively because I myself have a grade mare and I've constantly heard people talk rudely of grade mares. Though, that is just me. You are right though, it is a good description.
