I don't actually see any draught in her at all...To be honest she looks like a super-obese Morgan and considering her height and colouring (looks like she's got a copy of the creme gene which the Morgan breed has) Plus look at her face shape, eye, legs, and overall confirmation and Morgan would make alot of sense. But I'm more of an APHA then Morgan expert lol

She almost looks like a Haffie / Morgan. The liver + flaxen is not uncommon in Morgans, but most are over 14hh. The draftier build (although she is obese!) combined with the size make me think Haffie Morgan.

We think she could be a morgan cross, but it would be with a smaller horse. I have never seen a morgan as small as she is! And yes I think everyone including her owner will agree that she is obese. She has been on a diet for three years and still hasn't lost much weight. The vet says there really isn't much we can do except give her her thyroid meds and monitor how much food she gets. She is NOT allowed to graze without a grazing muzzle and when she does graze it's only for about 20 minutes per day.

I was just told they are certain there is draft in there somewhere as she has the horrendous draft feet...just going by what the owner says.

As said I really think Morgan Haffie cross. The draftier type Haffie, not the modern. What does 'horrendous draft feet' mean?? Could be Morgan crossed on a Haffie/Belgian. That cross (haffie/belgian) is popular to create a smaller but still very sturdy work horse. So if she was Amish owned that wouldn't shock me. Morgans are popular road horses, the Belgian/haffie is a popular work horse. Could have been an accidental..

She is quite literally the EXACT same color as a friend's Morgan mare.

I would say haflinger cross. I'm not sure about the morgan, but there are things in her head, build, etc that make me say haflinger. They can be confused with small draft crosses because some of the "older styles" - especially what some of the Amish like to breed - tend to be shorter and draftier. There are also some haflingers that have a heavy amount of sooty gene. A mix might bring out even more. I have seen a few haflingers as sooty as this one. While not ideal to the standard (color of coat is fine - just the mane is too dark in this instance), they are out there.
