What kind of horse is this?
We adopted her last year and she is only two...but she is so tiny?

Never really knew what breed of horse she is.

hmm... she looks a little quarter horse-ish.... I don't know, how many hands is she? You should get a vet check on her and then the vet would be able to know

She is like 13 hands but she has such a large head in comparison to the rest of her body. He thought quarter horse/cross?. He didnt know what she was crossed with.

Cheyennes mom 08-16-2010 03:47 PM

hmm... maybe quarter pony? haha I don't know I'm just brainstorming!

Yvette 08-16-2010 03:51 PM

She kind of reminds me of a pony. My other filly who is younger than she is passed her up in size. My other filly was a paint/quarter horse. I have lots of people interested in her because she is so little...If she was older she would make a great kid horse. LOL

Cheyennes mom 08-16-2010 03:55 PM

haha well maybe that could be the case or something?

Oh i love her! lol She could be a Quarter Pony (as stated above) & you could probably even register her as one if you really wanted to. They go by height & conformation, & your horse doesnt have to have a pedigree.
But she may be a QH. My aunt owned a purebred, reg QH mare who was 13.3hh ;) She's only 2, so she will get a few more inches to her.

Thank you and she is an absolute sweetheart. She tries to be alpha mare though with my large QH. Little girl with big spirit.

Actually, said mare before was the lead mare in my aun'ts herd of 20 mares plus foals & yearlings lol, even as a 4-year-old (she's around 8/9 now..). She was the smallest fullgrown horse out there!

if she is only two i think she is rather big and muscular..... actually if she is a qh she is definately big.... she will grow
