This is a mare for sale on the AMHA (American Morgan Horse Association) website: http://www.morganhorse.com/pod/img.p...image2&id=5885
Am I the only one seeing that she looks A LOT like your girl? If your mare is finer-boned than that mare is, that lends itself (at least in my opinion) to the theory that she's crossed with arab, possibly.
I definitely don't see standardbred, though.
Thanks for the reply and the link.
I don't see the simularity in that photo to my mare other than color. The Morgan is long and stretched looking. My mare is much more compact with a relatively short back. Also does not hold her neck and head like a Morgan. I have never seen the traits of an Arab either,ie: in gaits or tail high movements.
I really have no idea what she is because I have not seen a horse like this personaly.... and I handle a BUNCH. I can tell you her trot is as smooth as they come, you can sit it bareback with little effort.
Feet are small and tight 4 inches wide by 4 inches long. That is smaller than some ponies. So her feet don't match up to the Morgan or Arab breeds as they generally have robust hoofs.
Any other thoughts?
