    Mule :P

    Nah, just kidding, but with those lovely huge ears that was my first thought! XD In all seriousness I see Arab too, with that head shape and the slender swan-ish neck. But then she's not very Arab through the body and Arabs don't tend to have enormous ears like that, soooo...

    I've never had a donkey, or a mule for that matter [very uncommon here in Aus to find a mule!], which I reckon is a real shame. But facts are facts and I just can't afford an animal that size that I'm not smart enough to be able to train for what I do!

    I agree with the QH/Throughbred....I see Throughbred a lot in her to be honest, but maybe that's just me.

    She could be part paso Fino . Maybe some arabian but not a very dished face,
    I would not base breed by her neck conformation. She could have some QH
    Where did you purchase her ? And what did the buyer state she was ?
    Also what breeds are common in your area, she is probably a mix of those breeds.

    I see a lot of TB in her body and I see a lot of Arab in her head and her movement so my best guess is a TB x Arab.

    Dish isn't the best characteristic of whether a horse is or is not an Arabian. It's just the one that most people know.

    A friend of mine breeds Arabians and one gelding they bred topped out at 13.2 and had, no joke, THE ugliest head I have ever seen on any horse. He had some serious roman nose action going on there. He had three older full siblings and all of them were 15hh+ and stunningly beautiful. The breeding was not repeated again.

    The stallions this friend has owned all had/have plain-ish heads, as Arabians go, but all produce [or produced] stunners.

    Head shape is unreliable when it comes to telling if a horse has Arabian in it or not. For example my gelding is half Arabian, half Thoroughbred.


    I get asked, based on his head shape, if he has QH in him!

    My guess from her tail set would be QH/Arab or TB/Arab cross. Being that she's only 3 she has more growing to do, I bet she will fill out and look more like her cross in three years. Looks like you two are going to have many fun and amazing good times! I would work on her head carriage, and since she is still growing take it a bit easy.

    Here is my first horse, a QH/Arab cross at 2. She looked very much the same.




    Here she is at 14 the day after she had her first foal, so don't pay attention to the belly or back. You can see how she filled out and got a bit more QH looking.


    QH/Arab or TB/Arab is my all time favorite "breed" or cross, seems like a good one gets the best of both worlds. I would do anything to have my girl back! Congrats and wishing you two the best!
