He is gorgeous! My guess is there is some Appy in there somewhere given the sclera and hooves. Also is the skin mottled up around the genitalia? That is usually a good indicator, too.

To me he looks just QH. White scleras are most well known in Appys, but aren't secluded to just them. I know a mustang that has them, and she's not been crossbred for many generations back.
Here's a Quarter Horse I had. I just went through her pedigree to check, there's no sign of Appaloosa in her pedigree anywhere, and the only other breed you'll find in her pedigree is Thoroughbred (mostly from Three Bars back around the 1950-60's). Yet she has a white sclera. If I'm not mistaken though, the sclera came from the first horses that came to America... But I could be wrong on that.
This mare also has some of the other things your guy has, if you look at her face marking

Also, that white spot in your photos looks awfully close to where some saddles would be on him. It's possible it's from a poorly fitting saddle if it's close enough

QH. My friend has a foundation bred QH mare that is the exact same color as your boy.
