What makes you believe there might be Canadian in there? Hard to tell what he might from the angles of the photo, do you have more?

Canadians are not drafts and not only are they not drafts, but they are actually very rare, more so where you are than locally to me.

Have you had the chance to see the parents at all? It's possible that your new baby is all QHs, there are some bigger built QHs out there. The foal doesn't look thick enough to me, to be a draft cross but having said that, there are some smaller drafts as well.
Again better pictures would help:)

uhh...Canadians are not rare here...there is some at every barn..actually even 2 down the street...I purchased her from a dealer..
I would be thrilled if there were no draft in her (not that I have anything against drafts ..there just huge)as that is not what I wanted but apparently comes from out west so I'm thinking a PMU which pretty much all have draft in them...I thought I was just buying a paint cross until I had a good look at her legs and they are bigger than the 15.2hh horse here or my appys and after measuring from knee down to coronary (hope that spelled correctly) gives 16.2hh...

I still think you're confusing yourself. It's probably Canadian warmblood you're thinking of. There are only 400 reg. Canadian in the entire USA and you would know if she was they would have sold her using that as a selling feature without mentioning you would have had to probable pull out a second morgage to buy her.
As for PMU foals some of the best tempered horses I've seen have been draft crosses( that's why I own one). You should get a vet out and see if she's chipped. That would answer a lot of your questions. Keep in mind that not all draft crosses are big which in your case would be good if you don't want a big horse. Hard to say by the photos tho it doesn't look like the foal is very large but that could change.
What little info do you do have? Anything would help.

Hi I own a Canadian myself.
Your horse could possible have Canadain in it. But I would probably geer more toward another warm blood horse.
My reason is that your horses head would be much larger and the body would be much thicker.
To me it looks like there could be quarter horse or a thoughbred cross in there.
But I have to admit I am curious myself

Welcome to the Horse Forum!
Excellent! Another Canadian owner! What line is he out of? Is your guy a cross or is he registered? If you check out my signature, you'll see my boy.
