what is she?

hello all.
i have a grade mare that im just curious as to what you all think she may be.
i really dont know and it really doesnt matter, just wondering.
she is as good as gold once she is caught, lol
she used to be my brothers horse who he didnt take very good care of her.
left her at my uncles and didnt bring feed for her so my uncle turned her and her baby(yr. old) loose.
i went and caught them and brought them home with me.
she was very skinny when i first got her(her little one was still nursing at a yr. old)
so a couple of the pics are of when i first got her.
i also have a quarter mare (who is prego, with my first baby and her third).
my qh is a very easy keeper and the boss, Girlfriend(pics) is not so she doesnt get to eat as much as The Boss. lol

can you get more recent pictures because its really hard to justify what she looks like under her shaggy coat.

i have had her for 2 winters now and she always gets these really long hairs and it takes her alot longer than my qh to shed out.

i don't know. i think it might just depend on the individual horse.

She could be a QH/Arab. I would not say that she is pure Arab though. She does have a Quarter Horse look to her. Sometimes I horse won't shed if they don't have all the proper nurtients. Is she getting a Vitamin/Mineral suppliment? I suggest Hoffmans Horse Minerals (works good and the horse just free choices, and it's pretty cheap.
