What breed is she?

I bought a pony mare around a month ago and never asked what breed she is. He wrote on the form Spotted Pony so I took it that is what she is but Im not sure. I was also thinking maybe she was a POA but I dont think we get them in Australia. So what do you guys think?

Edit: I forgot to put some details down. She is 13.3h, 5 years old, I dont no anything about her history or anything. Its not really very handy info but its some.







Please just tell me if you need better pictures I will be happy to get more.

Cheers

She's darling. She looks like a POA to me. I have a leopard spot POA and he's about 13.3 also.

Is it possible for a POA to be in Australia though? I have also heard of British Spotted Ponies.

I guess sometimes it depends on where you are as to what a breed is called. Knabstruppers are large, aren't they, a horse, warmblood type? Take a look at the thread on POA's. She looks a lot like Charriot's mare. POA is Pony of Americas so in Australia, British Spotted Pony makes sense

Arent Knabstrup's horse sized?

I thought a Bristish Spotted Pony because alot of the horses in Australia came from Britian.

I might talk to her ex-owners and ask. I did ask someone and they said Appaloosa but she isnt tall enough.

I know nothing about spotted anything so I will agree with this hypothesis.

given the hieght i wold say poa given your location thought the british spotted pony is more likely unless someone flew a poa in?

Well a POA is just a horse/pony that is 14hh or under and has appaloosa characteristics, so she is a POA even if there aren't any officially in Australia. You could still get her registered as such. But she could of course also be another breed as well. Could be a short Appy. I don't know anything about British Spotted Ponies, but sounds like it's a possiblity, so...

What I DO know is she is downright adorable and as you know, I LUFF her :)
