any horse experts out there? what breed IS this horse?!?

this is fox, have only owned him 2 days and i cannot figure out his breeding! his previous owner has no idea either, any ideas? =]

those black spot things isn't mud, it's his actual coat colour

mustang in there perhaps?

Quarter Horse, a least in part. He's got a qh body style and those black spots on a red horse are very common on those with some running blood in their backgrounds. Please don't label him mustang because of the head...a lot of mustangs have beautiful faces.

Dunno about you, but I think he's got a beautiful face, really bright eyes. :) Makes me melt.

I'm honestly not seeing a whole lot of mustang... His head looks Thoroughbred-like, but his body is more QH-ish almost. More stout than a TB, anyway.

looks like a Paso fino. Pretty short eaers, gentle expressive eyes, nice compact head, long forelock, short thick neck, nice rump (not too muscular like a QH. too thick (in the barrel) to be TB. nice set croup, short coupled, front legs set a little further back than a QH but just like a Paso Fino. Looks like a full blooded Paso to me, I see on other breeds when I look at this horse. Does he gait?

i live in the UK, its hard to believe that my horse might be one of those fancy flashy ones you only tend to see in america but..

he doesn't gait but has nice smooth even paces.

me and him, he could be a paso, he's not very quarter horse-ish to me but idk =]
