Belgian What?

These pictures or rather old. The horse is Lullaby. She passed away quickly in 2007 at the age of seven. Any way, I have never know what breed she was. We were told part belgian. Any thoughts. I know the pictures are not great but they are all I have on my computer now since they are so old. Thanks for anything you got!

It is entirely possible that she is a belgian crossed with some form of stock horse (QH, Paint, TB, etc). She was a beautiful girl.

As an owner of a Belgian, I don't see any Belgian in her either....no hint of feathering, does not have drafty body lines, chest not wide, etc.

Looks like she has alot of QH in her to me....

But then again, what do i know?! LOL.

I agree, she looks more like a QH than anything drafty.

This is the Belgian/QH cross mare I used to have. I don't really see a lot of similarities between her and your horse.

Lullaby was very cute, but I really don't see any draft in her.

I totally agree with this I would say an Appendix, solid Paint or QH don't see even a hint of Belgian in there but there could be some a couple gens back.

I own Belgians as well and I don't see any Belgian in her... She isn't heavy boned as most draft crosses are and her head is tiny, and her hooves are tiny too. Draft crosses are usually bigger boned and have slightly larger feet than a stock horse, about a 3 or 4 sized shoe...
