Smile What could she be?

I got this little girl about eight months ago but we don't know what she is. At first I thought STB because of the roman nose, but she isn't built like one at all. My friend said se looks like a mustang but she has no freeze brand on her neck. Does anyone else have any ideas?

I had this mustang once named Shelby, she looks just like her. Shelby didn't have a brand because her mother was prego when they rounded her up. Maybe that could be the case here?
If I can find pictures I will post them.

Either way I like her she is pretty. I think mustangs are pretty awesome horses. I swear Shelby and GT has the strongest feet I've ever seen.

How big is she??

She is 14.2 and yes she has the strongest feet! She never needs shoes. Even on rocky roads :)

Mustangs only have a freeze brand if they're wild-caught. Otherwise, if they're born or bred in captivity (even in the BLM holding pens), they aren't branded.

I would say mustang as well. She looks almost identical to a mustang gelding we used to have.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I agree with the suggestion that she is a mustang. I knew a few unbranded mustangs.

she doesn't look Mustang to me at all. her shoulder is more sloped than I typically see in mustangs, who tend to have a rather upright shoulder. her legs are a bit camped out behind, (tho that could be the angle of the photo). her back is not particularly long, which I see on a lot of mustangs.

I think she looks maybe Morgan +?

Is she gaited? She sort of looks like a paso fino. !
