whats the most common breeds in your country or state

So I'm curious i've seen some pretty cool looking breeds on here that i've never seen in my life so it's got me wondering, :
Whats the most common horse in your state?
What other common breeds are you able to pick up?
What are very uncommon breeds that perhaps youve seen one for sale once in a while?

I'll start.
Most common breed around me is the thoroughbred. Can pick them up for a few hundred, hell they are getting given away that's how many there are. Every single advertising site you go on about 90 percent is thoroughbreds for sale.
The second more common would probablly be Quarter horses and stocks though theres not as many as I would prefer. Its pretty much a thoroughbred state atm in my eyes. Also the standardbreds are very common too.
Very uncommon, well pretty much every other breed but I saw an irish draught for sale the other day for the first time ever. Sometimes I see those fjords for sale, I've seen about 3 of them in the last year.

That's all I can think of atm

Common breeds in NZ... I've seen a LOT of QHs. Standardbreds are common too :) And appaloosas.

I think the uncommon breeds are Fjords, haven't seen any TBs... nor Haflingers or Saddlebreds or TWHs.

Doesn't mean they aren't there though, lol. Haven't gone out much.

Im further south in the state then the OP but most common would be tbs, quarter horses and aussie stock horses.

One breed I've pretty much never heard of around here would be lippizzaners. I recently realised there is a small stud about 10 minutes from my house. I've only seen the horses from the road but they look gorgeous.

Quarter horses! They come on us like locusts! Quarter swarms! 100 sorrel geldings for every man and child! They are the plauge!

Believe it or not but theres barely any paints in queensland for sale lately!(except for 2 13,000 dollar ones ;) )

Sky- you are so lucky you rarely see thoroughbreds, it's all you see here :/
Apache- omg imagine if queensland got a few more lipizanns how amazing would that be! ^^

Arabians are a second, and then tb's. Now that I'm getting into dressage, I'm seeing much more warmbloods, although never outside the ring. Least common I would say are andalusians, friesians, gypsy vanners, and the like.

I would say half the horses in Oregon have to be QH's and the other half is a mish mash of breeds. Wouldn't be surprised if appies came in second.
