Part Standardbred? She's definitely got a definitive head. She is a very pretty girl! And stocky at that.
Just as a little side not, you would refer to her as a "pinto." Paint is an established breed so if she's not registered, calling her a Paint would be incorrect. Pinto refers to her color pattern. :) I used to get it mixed up myself haha.
Hm, I never really thought of Standardbred! It' seems like a weird cross! Haha, my first horse was a Standie though, I still love him to death. I still think her head is a bit wonkier thank a Standie, but I could be wrong.
And really? I never knew that! Ill remember for sure :) Posted via Mobile Device
I would say either QH with a broad face, or standard bred QH cross. The neck set is what believes me to say standard bred as it`s pretty high set, but the broad face isn`t that uncommon among QH and thorougbreds, it`s just a desirable cosmetic trait to not have it. Purely superficial though! Some action shots would definitely help.
Sorry for the double post... But this is my paint's face. He's definitely completely paint, but he has a similar shape to your mare's. Besides your mare's hip, which is definitely stock horse, I would say that her head shape could also be indicative of her being mostly, if not all, stock horse.
