Determining A Breed

I recently got a new horse. All I know is that he has some Palimino in him, so he is a cross breed. But I don't know what elese is in him. Can I work it out myself?

Would someone on here be able to tell from some pictures? Or would I need to get an experienced horseman to look at him to tell?

Thanks in advance.

You might try posting some pix here. Everybody will throw out what their idea of him is and lots of times, we are pretty close.

Also, just for future reference; Palomino is just a color and usually has nothing to do with breed though it is more common in the stock horse types like QH. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, I know Palimino is a color. But the previous owner's said Palimino was in his breed. So ta, they were wrong. They seem to know a lot and own a horse shop, maybe they meant to say his father was Palimino in color and not breed.

I'll get some pictures on here later. He has one bright blue eye and one brown eye as well. Any ideas what that is? I don't think he is blind in either eye.

Treat your horse the way you want him/her to treat you, then the eternal bond you share will be indefinately rewarding.

Thanks.

So because I'm in Australia, he would most likely be an Australian Quarter Horse?

Probably a stupid question...

Horses can have blue eyes, just like people. It does not mean they are blind. They just have blue eyes.

Yes, I know they can have blue eyes. But Dusty has one brown eye and one blue eye. Usually, both eyes are the same color.

That's very common. It's just about as common as having two blue eyes.
