Can you figure out his breed

hi everyone I hope my picture comes through

I rescued this guy from a family who was neglecting him. They told me he was a twh but I don't really see it and if he is he is mixed with something. But he sure has some kinda gait (not like my qh)
Any ideas as to what he is??

I can't be much help sorry.... just wanted to say that was a weird little head he has, cute, but different from what I've seen before! Wow he is built like a tank.

I rather like his little head and beautiful colouring. However, the way his neck ties in low and what looks to be a straight shoulder, screams TWH. I've seen so many of them similarly built. Yep. I think that's what you have there.

hahaha he is a tank and he does have a weird head body proportion if you ask me but he is a joy :)

ok thanks I was really thinking he was a mix with a heavier breed. But would like to hope not as we are preparing for endurance rides this coming year :)

I'm just throwing this out there, but maybe TWH mixed with Arab? That wonky face just screams that to me. I'm not that good with breeds, honestly.

He kind of looks like some of the pasos out my way. They tend to be fairly smooth-muscled, round/chubby?

I'm with dana, I see paso fino more than TWH. Do you have any other pictures? A video would really help determine what he is.

my guess would be Arab X TWH or Arab X QH
