I don't know much about morgans... but I have definitly seen the both ends of each specrum with them (both show lanky kind and stocky foundation). And I do think your's looks like foundation. The show ones remind me of national show horses or arabians that have TB genes lol.

He looks like a Foundation to me.

I say maybe, he has a bit of both, but looks more foundation to me. Did you check out Lippit Morgans?

Looks pretty foundationy to me. At some point in the recent past they started crossing morgans with another breed(can't remember, possibly saddle breds?) and many now have a much more "athletic" refined look. Personally, I would much rather have a sturdy foundation Morgan. My geldings mama was a foundation gaited Morgan and one of the best trail horses I've ever ridden. She would go through or over anything and do it all day long. Very cute boy!
