    The head definitely makes me think Arab cross.

    I don't see the paso fino, but the only experience I'm drawing on is the one paso fino boarded at my barn vs. the TWH also there. The TWH is much, much taller than the paso. I just can't imagine an Arab/Paso cross being that tall

    Arab/Draft could also be a possibility. He's got a pretty powerful looking neck, but that wouldn't explain being gaited.

    Arab/TWH/Draft perhaps?

    Just popping in to say I have no clue about your horse's breed, but you really need to readjust your bit, as every photo shows it cranked too far back. It's not effective, yet it is extremely harsh, in that position. Your curb chain should be tight enough that you can't pull the bit past an approximately 60-degree angle with the mouth. And honestly, I hate hate hate Tom Thumb bits, anyway, but that's another discussion entirely. You'll have much better control and finesse, and a happier horse, if you at least tighten your curb but preferably change out bits entirely.

    His neck is really thick! I am no good at the breed guessing game, but he looks big. Not Arabian, they're little. His neck makes me think he's got some draft in him... how big are his feet? Usually that's a give away when it comes to having draft... he does have a funny head. I am curious to know what he is! Heinz 57!

    hey bubba13 - sorry so late. This is the only bit he listens to... I have tried snaffles to different curbs to hackamores he doesn't respond well to them. I have since fixed the adjustments. After seeing the pictures the first time I started trying to adjust everything to a better feel for him. And then I saw your post and did what you mentioned made him a bit happier in our rides. Thank you

    his neck is huge lol t his hooves are about 5 inches wide and 5 1/2 long ... I used a ruler so not sure if those are proper measurements :) but he crazy unproportioned it makes me laugh everytime I see him

    Arab x Percheron? His dish face looks Arab, but his stockiness says some kind of draft. He's pretty.

    My best guess would be arab (mainly because of the head/neck) x something gaited. Could be about anything I agree w/drafty build, but that could come from a number of gaited breeds... How is his gait? Does he actually have a 4-beat gait?

    He's cute

    Theresa1 - yes he has a four beat gait that's the only thing holding me to the twh breed. But I do think he is a mix bc is a bit large in the body :) and small in the head :) but he moves just like my other twh, he is so smooth

    If you were in england I'd say arab x Welsh D but i'm guessing they're hard to come by in the states?

    What ever he is, he's beautiful :) x
