DraftX breeders and owners: Belgian x TWH?

I was gazing wistfully at Sam (again) today (I'll admit-I got the spring riding fever and it just won't quit!) and I was thinking...

*twogeldings thought train*
-sigh- the ponies are getting so fat...outta do something
Maybe next week I'll work more on flyspray with Red Man
You know, Sam has a awful drafty body...

Wait. Missouri = Belgian and TWH everywhere
Sammy + pangare coloring + TWH head + massive build
Belgium = Pangare + thick build

Missouri x Belgian + Pangare + massive build + long head = Sammy's a Belgium x Tennessee Walker cross?!

Sammy a few weeks ago, he's BIGGER now His back is like a plank of wood and he's built like a Tonka truck xD

Thoughts on this? I want to get updated pics ASAP. I had a chance to, but I was to busy standing in awe of my trio galloping full tilt around the pasture and racing cars

Wait! I'll fix it....

I don't know if you horse has any Belgian in him, but I have wondered the same thing about my little Mustang, so I know that train of thought!

He is short but BUILT. My vet said the thought he had some "cold blood" in him, but another neighbor said he looks more like an old style Morgan. (He does have a tail, but he was swishing it in this photo). I think this picture makes him look part Belgian.

If I just saw pictures and no background on these guys I would definitely say they have Belgian in them. The first looks like a Belgian TWH or maybe Saddlebred X? I have seen some draft/saddlebreds and they are pretty and look kind of like your guy. As for the second, is that REALLY a branded mustang? I would have staked money on that having Belgian in it. The strong, round shoulder and hip as well as the short back and strong coupling screams Belgian to me. I used to breed them and we had one mare that could be a dead ringer for this horse, although she was almost 17 hands and had the broodmare belly going on, haha!

Would be interesting to get the DNA testing done on them to see what kind of mutts they really are. Regardless though, they're both gorgeous and look like they are/will be great riding horses!
