Both my girls are 11 this yr.
I could be wrong about Girlfriend, she isnt registered and im going on what the previous owner said.
She eats the same as my quarter mare.
I will look harder for my camera today., because I noticed yesterday that she has some bald spots on her and her face. Poor girl, what am I to do.
Don't have extra money :(

Could it be a fungus? I would go out and get an antibacterial cream and throw it on. See if it clears anything up, if it doesnt switch over to MTG.
Another great way to help hair grow is Vaseline! I learned that yesterday thru my best friend. One of her old trainers uses vaseline on open ares with missing hair to soften the skin and allow hair to grow quicker. I haven't tried it yet but will give it a go.

Good Luck

Ok guys, couldnt find my camera but I did find some more pics of her from last summer.
I scanned them so here they are.
I also planned on giving her a bath in anti fungal soap that I have, as soon as it stays warm thru the night

Definately do not see any Arabian in her at all. Just because a horse's tail comes up when they run, doesn't mean they have Arabian breeding.

I've seen lots of other horses who run with their tails up, some even more animated then a few Arabians, who were registered Quarter Horses or Paints (such as FGR's Quarter Horses - those wannabe Arabians ;) LOL) .

I've found that horses with a more confident, sassy, and look-at-me attitudes will flip their tail while running. It's not an exclusive trait for Arabians, just way more prominent than most other breeds.

Personally, I think she just looks like a Quarter Horse.

With these new pictures I really think she's a quarter horse. She seems like she is just underdeveloped.

She is under developed, I don't get to ride much, because I have no trailer but I have started her in the round pen and boy is she nervouse in there. I guess no one has ever done anything like that with her.
And you are right about the tail going up
My quarter mare did it just a bit ago, my neighbors just got 2 new mules, as they were running around over there and got my girls a going and Starr did it, never seen her do that before.
SOOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL

Thanks for more pictures, I also think she is a QH who just needs some work & muscles. ;) Continue working with her.

It looks like the last set of photos really aided in trying to figure out what she is. At the end of the day there is really no way to know what she might be.
No matter she is, she's cute

I absolutely definitely see quarter horse.

How big is she?
If she's little she might have some arab, but I don't see it being much. As far as there being any arab/thoroughbred in her I don't think you'll really be able to tell until she's in better shape, weight wise at least.
