Can someone help me on what breed he is?

Hi everyone! Well as some of you know I got a 2 and a half year old gelding a few days ago. I will be moving him to a 10 acre pasture soon once I get the vets clean bill of health from the seller. Should be TOMORROW I HOPE! Well I was told he was QH and mustang cross... but I think he may be something else! What do you think he is?



He's a little smaller than my other horses I had in the past my Boyfriend is about 5 foot 6





Im only 5 foot lol

I'd say Mustang or Mustang Cross is a pretty accurate assumption.

He has very "stangy" strong legs. His head also makes me think mustang.
I love the coloring, and he's got really nice bone to him.

He looks like what you were told. He has traits from both. Color is possible from either so I wouldn't say that he had to have paint in the mix. Why are you doubting? ETA Nice horse.

I agree. Based on the size and the little bit of feathering he has at his fetlocks he screams Mustang to me. And, he's not a Pinto....his coat is Sabino and is yummy!

Love the coloring, and I could definitely see QH/mustang cross as a possibility.

Pinto refers to any of the white patterning genes- tobiano, frame, splash, dominant white, or sabino

I see some Clydesdale blood in there, the colouring is really common in the UK and more of them like it in the US too now.
Could be crossed with a TB or be a three parts TB and one part Clyde

His build, size, type and lack of feather, would tell me no Clydesdale in there. This colour (Sabino) is found in many breeds and Mustangs. Very likely some coloured horses in his background. I could be a mix of many breeds. He's a pretty little boy.
