Arab crossed with???
 
3 Attachment(s)
I was told that Caara is a full arab, but I don't think she is. (I only bought her a week ago.) Her bone structure is different (mainly her legs) from an Arab but she definently has the face and ears. She has huge feet so I am wondering if she is a cross with a draft? Any ideas???

How old is she?

onlyrodeoqueen 02-26-2010 10:47 PM

The people we bought her from said she is no more than 17 yo, so I will just say 17.

I'm getting a Haflinger vibe. With that neck.... In fact she looks like Squiggy! My friend and I went to look at this guy last week for her kids. He's a Haflinger X.

I don't think you would get that nice of a head off of a cross between an arab and a haflinger. The arab would soften and refine the haflinger head, but not to the point that she has. You will also be suprised when she loses her winter fur. These little desert horses tend to get a HUGE coat in winter since they are thin skinned and are made to deal with heat, not cold. I think that when spring rolls around you'll see what I mean. It's a 180 from their winter coat to their spring one. I don't see anything in her conformation that would say she is a mix. If there was somthing off about her it would be her butt which is probably just from being out of shape, not nescessarily her breed. Good luck, and if you can, try to find out more from the people you got her from like why did she not get registered and such. Keep us updated, I want to see this lady underneath her coat in spring! :)

^^^ Agree the winter fuzzies can really throw things off. But I do get a pony vibe from her. Not haffy though, Like grayshell said she's too refined for that. How tall is she? Maybe some Welsh Pony?

hard to tell under that ball of fluff :) She might be full arab though

onlyrodeoqueen 02-27-2010 02:40 PM

She is about 15hands..She may look alot different when her winter coat sheds but her hoofs are huge. I'll take a picture when I get the chance =)
