How do you know he's an Andy if he's not reg'd?

If you don't know his parents' names, then I'm rather sure you won't be able to register him.
He is certainly cute.

Just a side note - see those two white spots on his withers? Those are likely caused by pressure points from your saddle - I would double check with a professional that it fits your horse correctly. I would hate for your lovely guy to get a sore back from an ill fitting saddle.

He looks more lusitano to me than Andy... They tend to be a bit heavier, blockier than the andies... :)

He sure is a lovely chap though!!!!!

I don't see anything majorly wrong with him conformationally, though he is standing under himself in all the pics...If he stands like this all the time, I would have the chiro/physio look him over. :)

No offense, but he doesn't look like Andalusian to me (we had Andalusians in the old barn). Why do you think he is? I believe you can do DNA to prove that, but I'm not very positive. He's very nice looking horse, BTW.

Is that a brand I see on his LR hip? JDI is correct about those white spots.

Whatever breed he is, he is stunning. Wow....

He does not look like an Andalusian what so ever. And I would definitely double check the fit of your saddle. Those two white spots on his withers look like pressure points.

Just like everyone else.. I really don't see andy in there :( Very cute though!!

Those white spots are saddle sores... check the saddle fit :)

I think that is a brand. I'd research the brand. In order to help you figure out how to research your horse, I have a couple questions for you, such as:

Who told you the horse was an Andulasion? The Andalusian horse typically stands 15.2 to 16.2 hh,so your horse is small (as for your conformation questions).

Do you have moving photo's of him? He is a very cute horse.

Here is the breed association information for the US:

I agree...he doesn't really look Andulsian to me in the least. I would do some research on his may be able to find where he came from, and what breeds he is. To me, he actually does look like a mustang...he's a good looking horse too, whatever he happens to be.
