Question Does he look like a Morgan to you?

This might sound like a stupid question but i've been told my 17 year old Morgan looks like a quarter horse. But I was also wondering cause the barn I ride at's specialty is Morgan horses and all their horses are the Lean "arabian like" morgans and mine is more stocky.
His registation papers from his old owner say he was qualified through blood testing to be a morgan.

Here's some pictures of my horse:

Yes he looks like a morgan, esp. In the picture of him being ridden. I believe there are different types of morgans, just like quarter horses.

Like others, looks like a morgan, I grew up riding morgans and a morgan cross with quarter horse she was the best barrel racer up til she was 22, until she died at 33 I don't think she knew she didn't have to live life at high speed. Great horses, with lots of heart when they want to be.

He's got a nice butt! But he really looks like a Morgan

Another vote for Morgan. I have a partial lease on a purebred Morgan that's the stockier type. Looks just the same. I used to have a lean, sleek Morgan - same face. Your picture where your horse is looking back at you made me jump a little in my seat: it was my old beloved mare looking at me again! The coat and mane color combo is also typical Morgan. He's lovely no matter what he is.

Well, if you don't like him, he can live with me!
Love the old tyme stocky Morgan horse, he is lovely!

Morgan. All over. I don't see quarter horse- every inch of him screams morgan to me... As for your doubts due to his thicker build than 'arabian-like morgans', look up 'Lippitt morgan horse'- Lippitts are bred to the standards of the original morgan horse, and those guys are THICK, lol.
There are different types of morgans, just like there are different types of arabians and quarter horses. And to add to that, individual horses can look even MORE like a different breed. Does he have papers? Try researching his bloodlines, so you can see what's in his bloodlines, and maybe contact his breeder. :)
