Tobiano pintaloosa so they are missing part of the mix since neither breed they claimed her to be has tobiano. She looks bay with vanish as well. I'd say she is pinto, appy, and Arabian. Posted via Mobile Device
I'm going with Pintaloosa, the pinto side having Arab in there as well, and then of course the appy for the blanket and varnish. She could also potentially not have any Arab in her and be something else entirely. I know several horse definitely NOT Arabs that still carried their tails like an Arab, including my TB mare with a huge thick tail. Still carried it like an Arabian. Hard to tell without a good side conformation shot. No matter what he is, he's really cute! Love the uniqueness of his coloring.
I'll see if I can get you a side photo. He has a higher headset and quite a bit of bone for his size(something I don't see often in paint/appaloosas). His hip is smaller, with a short back. He is also fairly narrow, and rides nearly identical to my pure arab mare. Endurance in spades. His impatient, in your pocket type of personality, combined with a forward way of going, sensitive nature and the way he reacts to correction(you better ask nicely or you wont get anywhere) remind me of an arab too.
