My Mare's hips stick out a bit too, no Pride's Generator in her, but many crosses of Midnight Sun and Merry Boy, Sun's Delight D, Marks Crackerjack etc.

I think many of the old "foundation" horses were built that way, years before the modern day TWH became popular.

Yeah, that's a lot of what my guy has in him but also has Shadows Shocker in him too.

I'll have to see if I can find a better picture but here's this one for now. You can see how his hips stick out and the way his butt looks, this is at a good weight for him.

Found and after ride pics of both boys, taken the same day as the above photo.

You can see, they are no where near as thick as a QH. Also, this is what about how your boys feet should look.

I'm happy to see that these others are "hippy" too.

I feel like my farrier did a good job based on Darrin's horses feet. He does a lot of QH's and I asked him if he knew how to properly manicure my BamaGirls' toes.. He told me "Not to worry, I've been doing them all for years. I got this". It seems he did know what he was doing...

My horse is a mare, and I don't intend to offend those of you that own stallions or geldings, but in my opinion TWH's look "dainty" next to QH's... :)

My TWH is out of different bloodlines (Postmark) and is built heavier than Darrin's pics. (at least I've never SEEN her at that weight, LOL). But, our MFT is more 'dainty' built and I can tell you that he is tough tough tough - It's pretty amazing what stamina they have and what ground they can cover!

I haven't personally owned a barrell chested walker but have been around quite a few of them. Those do get rather quarter horsey looking.

Is that due to bloodlines or feeding habits?

More or less bloodlines. Just from personal experience I would say 80% of the walkers out there are slab sided while 20% are barrell chested. Again, personal experience but slab sided walkers gait better than barrell chested ones. I'm sure some on here will disagree with me.
