    Can anyone tell me what breed?

    He is a 6 year old dark bay gelding 14.2 in height. When I bought him I was told part Arabian and the farrier thinks part Morgan and draft because he has a bit of feathers can anyone else tell me what they think?

    Sorry, but your pictures didn't work. You have to either upload them directly from your computer (click on the paperclip when you are on the "post reply" page) or you can copy and paste them from a 3rd party photo site like photobucket or flikr.

    LOL, no worries . I'll re-post your first 2 pix as they were sideways and upside down...

    I really don't see any Arab traits in him. He looks very Quarter Horse-y to me. I suppose it's possible that he's got some Morgan in there somewhere but I'm not terribly familiar with that breed and their traits so I'll leave that to someone who knows more about them. If he's got draft, it a couple of generations back; not enough height and too light on bone to be half.

    Pretty much any breed will have a varying degree of feathers. I've known some QH that had a lot of feather on them, so much to make you doubt their breeding, and I've got a half draft that's got less feather than your guy LOL.

    Whatever he is, he's one heck of a gorgeous, stout little guy.

    I'm going with foundation QH. Look at that hip. Bet he's got some power back there.
    Love him!

    My guess- morab.

    I agree with smrobs, I don't see any arabian. He looks very much like a foundation QH, and I won't discount the morgan- I'm not very good at picking out morgan traits, so I can't really say. I would, however, have to say that I feel there's only a slightly better chance of him having draft in him as having arabian... He's a stocky guy, yes, but no more stocky than a good QH. Definitely doesn't have the bone I see in horses with any decent amount of draft blood...
    Conclusion... Hm, I would hazard to guess QH/morgan. He is definitely gorgeous, whatever breed!
