Does he have TWH in him?

I can't attach files so heres a link
When I got him I was told walker/Paint Cross.
I know its not the greatest pic but I have dial up so its hard to upload pics

I didn't know you could still GET dial up! A straight on picture from the side would be better, but I think he does have walker in him.

His back end looks walker to me. Is he gaited? Love his color, lovely boy!

Yes lol you can still get dial up its the only thing theyll gve us I live out in the middle of no where.

I'll try to get a good conformation picture of him so you can tell better
I can't ever get anyone to hold him for me so I have to put him where I want back up hold the rope & hope he doesnt move & he always does by the time I stand back to get a good picture lol.

& thanks I love him he's unique :)

He's not gaited but when I trot him its very different from a trot on a different breed like a Qh
Its smooth but a fast trot.

Hes only 14.2 HH
Also do TWH's Tend to have Weight gain issues
He was 6 months old when I got him & starved to death.
He's now 4 & a Very hard keeper
(hes been vet checked & put on a weight gaining plan & its nothing due to health vet said could be his breed)

Well, all the twh's I see seem to be on the lighter side, but I'm no expert. He looks like a healthy weight in that picture...

Our purebred and our cross are both the sort that gain weight at the mere smell of grass, so not ALL of them are hard keepers, but that doesn't mean that yours couldn't be.

Yeah I just got him looking decent I still think he could use some fat on his hind end & back. Hopefully I can get some good pictures tomorrow :)

He's such a cutie! I do see some Walker in there, esp. His head. He looks like a sweetie :)

Like calicocatt said, not all Walkers are on the lighter side and hard keepers ;) See? Lol! She's purebred and as you can see, an easy keeper No...She's not pregnant
