What breed do you think that this mare is?

The only thing that I know about her is that she is seven yrs. old. Her name is Star, she is 14.2 or 14.3 hands, she's a little flighty and extremely sensitive.

Anyone want to take a jab at it? I bought her to get her out of a situation. She is very green but she's kind and tries. I haven't worked with her much because all of my attention has been on another horse of mine that got a pretty bad ligament injury to her hock. With the other mare doing well, I am now turning my attention more to this girl for training. I was told by the lady that I got her from that she was a buckskin QH (lol). I didn't care, I just took her. I am curious to what others might guess what she could be made up of though.

Pretty sure you can have these guys test and find out: Service Labs - Texas A&M Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences

I think the test is like $25? But not sure.

You can test for parentage if you happen to have the parents DNA. You can also test for color, markings, etc. They still have no test for breeds.

There is a company that does breed testing. Someone on the forum just had their mustang tested to see what breeds he's made up of. Here's the thread:

That being said, I see A LOT of Arab in her. Maybe she's NSH (National Show Horse or Arab/saddlebred cross).

Yes, I have read about them. I am not too convinced of their accuracy. Hmm, Maybe I should send in a sample of another mare I have that I know exactly what she is to see how accurate the test really is. Anyway, I'm just looking for a little input from peoples eyes.
