    Default Guess the Breed! Additional pictures and name post 59

    I'm upgrading this gelding....wondering what you all see. I won't tell you what the old owner told me he is (I'm not sure she had a clue either anyway), but I'd be curious to know if you guys see what I see:

    I hope these work - my computer is being finicky.

    I think it's private right now. You may have to change your settings.

    No pics but. . . .clarinet? Oboe?

    (Sorry - couldn't resist the opportunity to make a smart remark over the missing "B" in the title!)

    Oh good, I was really confused and wondering, "is reed some horse term I've never heard of?".

    LOL...d'oh! Okay, all mistakes fixed! Try not to read the posts with the picture and video before guessing. I want to know exactly what others see. Later I'll just examine the data

    I thought that would be another thread about naming a horse, this one after a wind musical instrument.

    I was thinking, if an andalusian, how about Baroque Recorder, but not sure that would fit "reed"?

    So much for literal thinking.

    How tall?

    If horse size i'd guess qh cross with just about anything- maybe Arabian, morgan, welsh

    I'm not sure what breed he is, but I like what I see. Maybe Morgan crossed with something else?

    Definitely arab, maybe a tad bit of QH. I see muscling on the croup and I think QH.

    Now the pictures are showing.

    I know what that is, called the "Amazing-Running-With-Tail-Flagging-Bay" horse!

    Good find!

    Ok I did not read any other posts, but my guess is an arab. He has the arab head toss down flat! I am going with a cross because his tail seems a bit low for an arab but he flags it pretty well and he is a bit on the bulky side for pure Arab. (Not withstanding Russian, Polish or spanish bred arabs) I don't know on the other half, he is a bit long and tall. So maybe Anglo Arab.

    First thought was QH cross. Seeing the feathers on his legs and big trot-- maybe Morgan-QH?

    He's horse sized - about 15.1.

    I don't like Morgan for him, he is a bit long for compact breeds like Morgan or Andalusian. I have had an Arab/Andalusian, she had the shortest back and she was pretty bulky. Though video can be deceiving. He doesn't seem very bulky either for the heavier breeds. I want to go with a lighter breed. The feathering doesn't really have a big factor to me. My NSH mare has feathering, but my morgan really doesn't have any. I really like Anglo Arab for him.

    Look at me participating like I know what I am talking about LOL.

    Oh, he has no name, and I know how much you all love naming other peoples' horses, so feel free to suggest (seriously leaning toward a wind instrument name now!).

    Morgan X TB. That's my best guess. They are fairly common by me. His canter is too true to be a STB.

    There's some Arab in that guy, no doubt. Except the canter doesn't look Arab-y to me.

    You could name him Willow. It's a reed!

    I second that, good name, if it fits the personality.
