    There are all kinds of different shapes and sizes in the quarterhorse world. He looks like he is probably a QH. He's standing on ground that slopes down toward his front end and that makes his butt look high. I doubt that it's that much higher than his withers. Make sure he's sound and sane. Don't fall in love with his color.

    Yeah the angle isn't good, and QHs are known for their big round rumps. I thinlk he's probably a QHs :)

    I wouldn't buy him..he has a club foot and with his hip being so high won't help him.. Lots of fish in the sea in much better condition..that horse would make a better pasture pet than riding horse...keep looking.. I would say not all quarter but part..

    He looks like he's definitely got some Quarter Horse in him, but again, he may or may not be a cross. I agree that he looks butt high, but the ground he's standing on is definitely not good for conformation pictures. He does have pretty upright pasterns, and is a little long through the back. I agree that you should be more concerned finding a horse that is safe for you personally, and that you would enjoy riding, than a particular breed, or age or type. If he's calm and quiet, and you think he would be a great horse for you, then go for it, but if he's not, you can definitely find something else that does fit the bill. Good luck in your search.

    He looks QH to me. He's cute, if he has a good mind and is quiet and well-mannered, I sure wouldn't rule him out.

    He kinda looks Andy x Qh - I ride on XD

    Being but high can cause problems if you don't treated right. Its like giving a childs pony, stallion's food. He could develop back problems in the future.. if your looking to ride him daily then maybe you could look elsewhere.

    He looks like a QH draft cross to me. Is it possible his front feet were standing on lower ground, he is very bum high. I have seen worst, I wouldnt be too concerned but I would have a full vet check done with x-rays if you're feeling fancy.

    I know he is healthy. He is pretty calm and quiet easy to handle. He actually has a really good stop. Tucks his legs under very nice. Spins very nice as well. I do love his color but what got my attention was how good he behaved. But Im still looking. Like many of you said keep looking till I find a good match for me. So far he seems to be the closest.

    Also his rear may be just slightly taller than his front but only very little. As of right it doesnt seem to bother him at all but who knows in the future.
