Andalusian is a new one! I think there has literally been close to a dozen different breeds people have said they think he might have in him. The most popular guesses are TB, but some think he's not mixed at all. I've also heard Paso Fino, Morgan, Welsh, Warmblood, Appendix, Arab, Quarab, Appaloosa (though you'd be surprised how many people don't know what his color is), and even draft. As his owner, I could tell you even less about my opinions on his lineage lol. Sometimes I think he might not be mixed, but then he doesn't strike me like any Quarter Horses I have seen. He is also a bit "hotter" than said Quarter Horses which also makes me think he has something else, though that's not at all to say hot QHs don't exist. He has knee action not quite like I've seen before and has a relatively short trot, however his canter is a different story... Long and sweeping. Then he's just so small! He's not yet horse sized and is leaner than my foundation QH gelding, and who knows how much or if he will grow. That being said he has energy and stamina for days, he's always ready to go and cools down quickly. Then, he has a bit of "feathering" more so than I've seen on most other horses (I trim it so its not apparent in the photos), however that doesn't always mean anything either. Who really knows, perhaps he is just a true mutt grade horse :). Would love more opinions and how you based your decision!
