What do YOU think she is?

I bought my 6-year-old mare Molly, 2 months ago & her owners said that she was half Arab, but they werent sure what else she had in her. From what she looks like (& the only Arabish thing about her is the very slight dish to her face) to me, my guess is that she's either crossed with a QH or a Paint. I say Paint (though she would be a Pinto, technically) because she has some heavily flecked areas, especially on her under belly & girth area. I've attached pictures of these.
Tell me what you think she is!!

I'd say either Paint x Arab or QH x Arab. To me that looks like a little bit of sabino (someone correct me if I'm wrong please) and that could come from Arabian blood, which is why I say QH or Paint cross. I'm leaning more towards QH cross, personally.

Yeah I figued QH. When I showed my dad a pic of her before I went to see her he said "She's got arab in her? Where? SHe looks like a QH to me!" lol Which is true, but it would be sweet if she had something else, like Morgan in her lol. I love morgans.

I dunno, most Morgans I've seen are a little less stocky than she looks. Maybe it's just me. XD Or the angle of the pictures.

Well that roaning, is probably rabicano roaning...she appears to be a Sabino in pattern, so that is why her roaning is only in certain areas.

She could very well be Arab, and perhaps QH or Paint, but given that Sabino color pattern can come in any of those breeds, it would be difficult to say she's not any of them. She is a good looking horse though, so I think you got a good one
