I am going to say Tennessee walking horse or a TW cross, because one horse looks oddly familar from a blog post I just read.

You have got to start changing your image titles :D

Natalia said...

Actually Mugs, the top row middle looks like an Andalusian more than a TWH to me. You also asked what kind of horses so...

RuckusButt said...

My first thought was Andalusian, second thought was (relatively) blocky heads. They don't all look Andalusian though. So my third thought was some type of Cob.

I do believe those are all AQHA.... Just very different flavors of the same Ice Cream. (I'm counting paint as AQHA, since it's the same thing.)

They all look like Andalusians :)

All I can say Natalia is, it is best to listen to Mugs than to jump on the TWH bandwagon. Just ask Becky.

Is PRETTY an official horse breed yet?

Top Right and Right middle row are TWH's. The rest i'm fairly certain are Andalusian. I'm a big fat cheater though. I know those two must be TWH's because of the expression of Dominant white/ sabino. I think the bottom right is TWH as well.

The curvyness of the top middle and middle middle horses are telling towards andalusian/ lustiano.

Dang, those are some purty horses!

Wow this is fun. I thought he had a very Paso looking butt, but not with that height. Maybe it's just a very Spanish butt. I believe a certain horse was gaited and I've never heard of a gaited Andalusian? How about Azteca (Quarter/Andalusian)? I have seen the rare gaited quarter horse. It's a bit of a stretch.

Would it be crazy to guess its the same Iberian horse as it grays out?

Vertical rows. I don't know what the first row is. Second row is either Andalusian or some Paso variation - very Spanish looking. Third row is definitely TWH.

Gillian - if there exists a horse that can be three different shades of gray, palomino, cremello, sabino, and tovero over the course of a lifetime, I WANT IT!!!

They all look like spanish breeds to me. I thought "HUSHES" new guy was an Andalusian? Do tell Mugs!

Ha-ha! I just figured it out! Too funny! But happy, happy, joy, joy to 'BB':)

JJ said...

I saw one and thought it was Spanish, then others look TWH all the way!

mugwump said...

Time to 'fess up.
Column one is Becky Bean's new horse. He was rumored to be a TWH.
I said, no way!
He looked Iberian to me.
Column 2 are Lusitanos and column 3 are TWH.
The Lusitanos are studs, Becky's horse is not. But his size, bone, movement and head tell me he's a Lusitano, over an Andalusian.But they're so close, he could be Andalusian.
Then, Becky's mom called and said he is supposed to be Andalusian, the person who sold him to her knew he could gait, but didn't by choice, she thought he might have TWH in him.
Thing is, he has a true, big Lusitano trot. TWH's do their running walk thing naturally.He does not.
The Iberian horses sometimes gait...but use the trot by choice.
So I was setting up the visuals.
Next week I get to ride him, I'm really excited.

That horse just gets cooler and cooler! Lucky Becky :)

Peanut said...

Congratulations Becky - he's a beauty!

zebradreams07 said...

He looks VERY much like a friend's BLM mustang, who had strong Spanish influences. Andalusian/QH?

Oh, and also! I've met two Standardbreds who had been trained to gait. And one of them was huge, nothing like the racing Standardbreds I've known. Both took quite a bit of encouragement to gait though, and all the Walkers I've known have done it naturally.

I'm done, I promise.

Becky's guys trot - I gotta say WOW!

Heather said...

Wow. I wasn't even in the right ballpark. I have a new Azteca mare that I'm totally in love with, so I keep seeing Andalusians everywhere, and they never are, so I figured this was a trick to show how varied the types within a breed can be. I was WRONG!!! :-)
