Smile What breed/color do you think she is??


This is her...what do you think?? I have a fairly good guess of her breed ...But her coloring has me baffled. She does have a dorsal stripe and some zebra-like leg markings that are hard to see in this picture.

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Bad picture for 'breed' guess, although my guess would be QH or TB...

Color? Grey...she was probably heavily dappled at one point, but as happens with all greys, she is going 'white'...I love when they maintain their darker points for a while though...stunning!

I was going to guess QH, but like Mom said its hard to say from the pict. At a glance I would say she was a grey, but with the stripes and dorsal line I would think gruella (although I've never seen one with the dapples)

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Maybe she is a grulla that's graying out.

Gray.

No idea on breed, bad photo for breed guessing and conformation critique.

I really was just curious about the color but decided to add that in for fun...I know it's not a great picture. I only have 2 of her so far...she's new! Here's the other if it helps...I never thought gray...but maybe. She is 13 though...and I've also never heard of gray with the dorsal strip and zebra markings...hmmmmm. Good guess on the breed! She is primarily QH...we think she's a QH/arab cross. I know this picture isn't great either with rider and tack in the way and at an angle...its just the only other one I have!

actually now that you guys have said it....duns can gray out right??? That would be a gray that would have the dark points! That might just be it.

Yep, duns can gray out too. I would say that is likely what she is. Pretty girl.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I do not see any 'zebra markings' as you call them. I see dapple patterns.
There is such a thing as counter shading. It looks like a dorsal stripe but is not.
