    Appy crossed with ... ?

    Here is Mitchell. He's a horse I'm going to look at on monday. Please excuse him, he's extremely overweight

    He's 12 years old, 14hh, and I was told that he's very solid and stocky even when he has less weight on him. He's an Appy cross, but the owner doesn't know what he's crossed with - he thinks maybe a draft of some sort? He does have the typical Appy mane (non-existent lol) but he has a nice, full tail.

    What do you guys think?

    I see some draft in there ;) However honestly dunno what it would be lol. If he were taller I'd say Percheron. His butt, and where his neck and shoulder connects looks exactly like my friends Perch.

    However, he is very handsome either way

    Are draft crosses normally 14hh? I guess they could be, but I dunno! He literally looks like a little Appy draft to me haha

    Very handsome fellow there ;)
    My guess would be an Appy of Quarter Horse breeding or else perhaps a cross with a heavy pony. If he were to lose some weight, he may not look so heavy as the crest in his neck may be reduced along with his hips and belly.
    It's very hard to say from there since there is no specific conformation for an Appy as they are more of a color breed.
    If anyone asks, it would be entirely accurate to just say he's an Appy ;)
    Wallaby and Yogiwick like this.

    I guess you're right! I just wish he was crossed with draft because I love draft crosses so much! Lol but you're right, he might not look so bulky once he loses some weight.

    I was thinking the same thing, but didn't say it because it seemed pretty "out there." He's built a lot like a Fjord, but as someone else said, that could go away when he loses weight.

    Honestly, if you're in cow country, I'd say he's an appy/QH cross, but the QH is an old-school, bulldog QH type.

    I was told by his owner that when he was thinner, he still had the crested neck and round bum.

    I'd say he's just a typical fat appy lol. Doesn't look particularly drafty to me. Or possibly QHx like drafty suggested. Whatever he is he's cute! And will probably be quite the looker once he sheds some of that excess weight.
