    She looks so much better. Way to go.
    If I had to guess, I'd say she's something gaited. I can't actually pin point what it is making me think that.
    A lot of people around here have cross bred gaited horses, no real breed. Just a mix of smooth riding horses, like walkers and paso. We will never truly know, but she look like she's coming along great.

    For some reason the uploader is being stupid, but if you click on it, it should be a picture of her from yesterday.

    Thanks! In person she looks a bit different from the other morgans, but she might be a cross or from less showy lines than the ones I am used to seeing. Here is a more recent photo. 20170115_114935.jpg

    I can't remember what I guessed before, but I'm gonna throw my final vote as Morgan/Appy. Like a modern appy, one that looks somewhat like a QH in build.

    Those spots have nothing to do with Appaloosa color genes, so nothing that specifically points to Appy blood.

    Oddly enough I could say Morgan cross too but without DNA type testing you won't know. Modern day Morgan's were crossed with saddlebreds I believe to get the slimmer showier look. Old style or true lippitt Morgans however are more blocky/stocky

    Cannot guarantee these are all Morgan's however was a google search

    Oooh neato. But nothing for appaloosa? How odd!
    Might do it anyways--Settle the arab--tb--qh-?? question perhaps.
