What breed is my horse?
 
I have a 17 year old Morgan cross that I've had for a few years now, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what breed she could be crossed with. She's 14 hands high, and acts like a giant puppy most of the time, and is very curious. However, she can be quick to anger. Before I got her, she was used as a broodmare for Dales pony crossbreds. Her gaits are very short and choppy, and has an EXTREMELY broad back - I was told I needed a draft sized western saddle for her.

Maybe she's crossed with Mustang? I'm not sure, I'm not good at guessing breeds but that's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw her.

Looks like a pony cross to me, which makes sense if she was being used as a broodmare for a pony breeder.

Where are you in the world? That might give a clue to breeds in your area. Did the previous owners tell you anything about her? Breeding to Dales is a bit unusual in most areas.

I live in Wisconsin... and the previous owner just said that he bought her as a 3-4 year old and knew she was part Morgan, and she'd been used as a broodmare until she was 12 when I bought her.

the photos don't show a lot to make a guess from , but I'd say Welsh pony.

What angles would show more? I could post more if it'd help. I also have a few pictures of her past foals, and a video of her running in a herd at her last home.

I also thought Welsh pony at first glance. You can see it in her face.
