So the popular guess on her breed has been Haflinger/Paint cross. What do you think?

She is 13.3hh and very stocky with big little feet :lol:
What would you call her color and markings? Black sabino? Black overo?

And lastly what do you think of her? Critique.


Here is Juno......

It's is hard to tell with her being so fuzzy, but I really don't see the haflinger in her. I would just say she is a paint. Haflingers typically have pretty flat withers and rounder features. To me her face does not really look like a haflinger's. I don't really know much about color genetics, but I have never seen a haflinger cross that color before. I think that the chestnut color is a dominant feature.

Technically without papers, she's a pinto. Definitely carries Sabino overo characteristics!

Thanks :) I've been calling her -little sabino pinto pony- I guess thats exactly what you all think as well!

Any comments on her conformation, what you see her used for?

I definitely don't see Haflinger, but it's possible. The chestnut color would be masked by the black gene (no agouti) if the paint parent carried it. She doesn't look very pony-like in her conformation, but the head does not scream stock horse to me. Someone mentioned Clydesdale, and the Sabino is very common in that breed. Might I ask how tall she is?
