This is what I think of for WelshXArab. She definitely has something stockier going on there. Even a welsh cob is a very round type of horse similar to Arabians. I think it's a safe assumption she has some stock horse (QH) in there.

If she has Welsh (which I personally completely disagree with) I would not say she is Welsh Arabian.

She looks like a Quarter Horse to me. The only thing that looks a little Araby about her is her head. So I could believe Arab/QH cross. But I really don't think her body looks Arab at all. Nothing about her back, hips or legs looks Arab to me.

Depending on where the horse is from, I kind of doubt Welsh. I live in the USA and have never seen a Welsh. I'm sure there are probably a few out there, but they are not a common breed here. Unless the horse is actually outside the USA (I don't see location listed?) then I kind of doubt Welsh.

Not everything with a pretty head is Arabian. I have a registered Fox Trotter than I could post pictures of and I bet she would be called part Arabian too, because she has a lovely face, is gray, and likes to flag her tail when she runs. But she's still a Fox Trotter. :)

PS. To the OP wondering about her color, she's a fleabit gray. She was likely born either bay or chestnut (since she has red spots) and then turned gray.

Here is an example. Not an Arabian.

(I love Arabians by the way, my first and second horses were Arabians). :) The only point I am trying to make is pretty face doesn't always mean Arabian. Although I guess technically just about all light breeds have Arabian in them.

I didn't mean welsh X arabian, rather what I meant was that she looks like she could have welsh influence. In my experience, welsh/arabian crosses are quite a bit shorter in the back and refined than this girl.

In all honestly, I think there's so many possibilites for what she could be, we could be discussing this for ages :lol:

I see Arab in her head neck shoulder (when she has her head up) and in her bum .

(Your horse is very cute but I do not see Arab. Too many people get stuck on the prance and snort and tail carriage lol. I did not say Arab solely on this mare's face)

OP her color is grey. If you would like to call her "flea bitten grey" it is a more accurate description and what her color is typically called (genetically grey is grey, spots or no, though you can add words to make the description, such as "rose grey") Her spots are her "flea bites" :)

I don't see it, but hey, you could be right!
