Red face What breed is she?

I have no clue what breed she is. Her winter coat is about 2 inches long. Her dad is a paint, not sure what her mother was. Can anyone help me out?

She looks to have some draft horse in her. How old is she ? Draft crosses make nice horses. She looks like a sweety.

I just have to say the paint horses saddle looks to be sitting down on his withers to much.

Is Dad a registered Paint? He doesn't strike me as a Paint but rather a Pinto.

If Dad is an APHA horse then the horse is a Paint cross. But I agree that this horse looks like it has some draft in it.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Yeah we just tried the saddle on him (Rocky). My boyfriends grandfather owns him and uses him for harness but he is mostly a pet. We were told that he was western broke and they used to ride him bare back so we thought we would try getting on him.

No he's not registered paint, he could possibly be pinto. I'm not sure.

As for the mare (summer), She is two. We aren't riding her she is still young and her hind end is still a little lower. We are just trying to teach her so she will be ready when the time comes. She is very nice and quiet. The first time I backed her she just stood there like she was ridden before.

They are both adorable! I agree there is a draft cross in there, and this may sound a little bit bizarre but maybe the mom was a draft/quarter.

She looks quarter horsey to me, but it is hard to see her conformation through that thick coat.

DEFINITELY get a different saddle for both of them, unless you want to teach them to have cold, sore backs and bucking problems. Or look into better padding, like a built up wither pad or something.

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.

She's a cutie, under all that hair!! Her lighter coloring (mealy) on her nose and underside is pretty typical of a bay draft. My bay perch cross has that and looked pretty similar when he was about one. The father looks pretty hefty (his hind legs are solid) in that picture. He might be a draft cross too. Take it easy on the riding. We waited until my gelding was 3 before getting on and really until 4 before starting trail rides. She's little and you don't want to hurt her. Hope you get some warmer weather soon!
