What is your opinion of my Horses breed?!?
So I got this mare about a month ago. The guy said she was QH possibly purebred. The only reason I doubt this is because she (In my opinion) doesn't look full QH. She looks like she has some Mustang in her. She has a super thick mane and tale and the way her stomach is shaped. I could just be sounding stupid right now but that's why I wanted to ask. She is 14.3hh.
I'm seeing either full QH or QH/Morgan (only by width of her forehead).
She has a similar build to Lucky (a QH/Morgan mare I use to lease/show).

She's a brick house! very sturdy looking.
Wow Morgan? I didn't even think of that. Well and I've look up Spanish mustangs and (In my eyes) she looks fairly similar.

She is standing really strange in every picture. Is she sound? She just looks like she is standing in a manner of trying to shift her weight off of an area.
Not seeing Spanish Mustang, I'm seeing QH maybe crossed with Morgan.
Definitely looks to be standing under herself in order to shift her weight off an area that may be painful.
She's almost identical to my mare and I think she's Morgan/QH.
I just started a thread for her critique titled 'curious about the critique'~ check it out and compare.
She's super cute!
She is definitely sound. Had a vet come out:) And I looked at the pictures of your mare Catpeedontherug, and they do have similar build. LOL I think I have myself a Morgan/QH!
And the reason she's standing the same in ALL of the pictures is because I took them fairly quickly and she didn't move the whole time. Well except her head. She's a good girl when it comes to standing still. And I've ridden her and felt no limp. And I've felt for heat and the other boarder has been around horses for, well almost her whole life, if she noticed anything wrong she would tell me. The vet came out right after I got her so in this month it's possible she's hurt herself but I highly doubt it. But I'll keep an eye on her!!
I haven't personally seen a Morgan/QH but I don't think there is a reason she couldn't be full QH! To me she kind of looks like she has the old foundation style look, a little bit of the strong bulldog type look. I think the mane and tail thickness is just a gene-a very lucky gene. I had a mare with similar thick mane and tail and she was full QH. I love thick tails!
