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!
