This is the new horse I'm getting, but I'm not sure of what breed he is. He was basically dumped at the auction barn as a weanling where my grandpa bought him. Nobody claimed him or would give my grandpa any info on the two weanlings he bought. The other horse that came from where he did looks completely different; he's tall, long legged, and short backed. Their both 4 now. I think he's a QH, but mustang has been mentioned. Also his coloring, he's a red dun (least I think he is) but I've never seen a horse with his coloring really. Most red duns I see are lighter then have the red points.
Well, he looks like a chestnut with a flazen mane, but its hard to tell because the pics are quite bright. He may be a red dun. He does appear to have a dorsal stripe, but his dark points (legs & eyes especially) seems pretty light.
He doesn't have bad conformation, although his hind legs do seem slightly stretched back. Not a bad case, though. I've seen way worse.
Oh ya, as for breed id say QH, maybe a cross. If he were real Mustang (like from BLM) he'd have a neck tattoo. It's very hard to tell if a horse is a Mustang or a Mustang cross as a Mustang has no specific conformational look as they're a mixture of many breeds over the decades.
No he's far from gaited. His color is interesting though. We thought he was a sorrel with a flaxen mane and tail to, but theres a dorsal stripe clearly down his back. Also if your standing next to him his coat has somewhat of a pinkish tint to it.
Yup the dorsal stripe is false as it doesn't have any real definition to it, and it looks faded, however he looks chesnut, is it possible for chesnuts to get sunbleached? The mane and tail don't quite look enough to be flaxen to me.. but then again that could be from how bright the pictures are.
