Brock's breeding - any other guesses? :)

OK, I have some new pics that may be clearer and I was wondering if anyone else wanted to have a go at guessing - I keep changing my mind as to what he is!! Note: he was sold to me as a TB, but pretty sure he isn't. He's about 15.3-16hh, if it helps at all.

So far, educated guesses have been Appendix and TBxAndalusian - I'm happy whatever he is but I'd love to hear any other thoughts

Honestly, he just looks like a plain old TB to me. They do come in all shapes and sizes, though they always have a "look" about them that screams Thoroughbred.

Well he's quite obviously a purebred Gorgeous. Didn't you get papers on him? ;) its very easily recognizable, you know.

Though I'm wondering if there's a tad bit of the Should-Be-Endiku's breed in there too. You should do a genetic test to see if there is any and do the right thing if he does have some of it in him...

If he is an unbranded Tb count yourself lucky - he will be a superb horse as he won't have been raced or even trialed.
He certainly looks like a (well padded) Tb to me

He could very well be pure TB - just very unusual for them to not be bred for racing (which he wasn't as he's unbranded with no ID) over here. Also, BIG feet and his legs aren't fine at all. But that might be because he's from a non-racing line. I have me a grade horse

deserthorsewoman - Well-fed? Too kind of you! He's proper fat, he is - on a very sparse paddock and currently getting no extra feed but he gets fat off fresh air. I almost wish he was a hard keeper - I still pay the same amount for board as I would if he got 2 feeds and heaps of pasture, and at least I wouldn't be constantly stressing about him being too fat!

Endiku - thank you!! I keep thinking he's only gorgeous in my eyes so it's nice to see someone else appreciate him lol. I'll check for any signs saying he's a Should-Be-Endiku on Saturday

I would say thoroughbred. We've had plenty straight off the track and due to steroids they look really heavy built like there not pure breds but we have papers. So he might be the same we have a thoroughbred gelding and he's 8 now but he looks like a warm blood but we have his papers, he stands at 17.2 hands tall
