There are certain breeds that are "obvious" - like Arabians, Fjords, Haflingers, most draft breeds, ... but Quarter Horses? They come in so many different sizes and builds. Of course, big hind quarters should be their trait, but if one is born with a skinny hip it will still be registered. Some cutting horses barely make 13.2 hands, others stand 16.2 and more. That said - just because your horse moves different than any other Quarter Horse you've owned doesn't make him NOT a Quarter Horse/Pony (unless he is obviously gaited). But I have to admit that there is in general no telling what his breed is.
With his speckled eye lids - did you consider POA?
