I got a new horse!! Now what the heck is he? lol

So I know this has been asked many times. I was told this horse is a "quarter horse grade." He's a nice boy, I have ridden him and he is responsive and sweet. However he was spoiled rotten, was CONSTANTLY hand fed treats, and then when he would nip or throw his head in your space, they would give him more treats. Needless to say, I have a handful lol

BUT I am happy with my purchase, as it gives me something to do for helping me get over Lakota, its been over a month since she died, and I really needed another project. Anyhow..

He's a quarter horse, but one of my friends suggested maybe arab? I have a video and a few pictures.

Please note that this is not in the critique section. I don't mind comments of his movement or conformation but please don't tear him apart. He's going to be my trail buddy and fun show friend. His main job is to try to fill some of the holes left by Lakota. Anywho let me know what breed you are thinking!!

PS he's not hot, only slightly spooky, he's friendly and extremely inquisitive.
Here's a video of the 2 ago previous owners (2 owners before me) riding him.

And here are some pics: I know they aren't that good as far as being able to judge, but this is all I have.

I absolutely love him! Such a calm, quiet-looking boy. Sorry, no help with the breed. His shape does look a lot like my Paso, though....especially that head!

His head kinda looks old school morgan to me. I can't say much past that though when it come to his breed. I don't not like his front legs in the second photo but they look different in each so I can't say. He looks like a sweet heart and I love his size.

He looks so tiny! I love short horses, personally lol.
Honestly, from the pics & video I don't see alot of Arab in him. I do agree that he looks like a Morgan, so my guess is QHXMorgan.
Handsome fella!

Haha yes it is a big change for me to own a short one!! I have ridden many 14ish hand horses before, but the last one I owned Lakota, was about 15.2-15.3 and still growing!! This guy is only around 14.2 or 14.3. I am 5'9" though so he looks extra short.

I didn't think Arab either, but when he moves at liberty, he does tuck his chin and hold his tail high. I think morgan too, because he's got that look to him. He moves very well both under saddle and at liberty.

He looks kinda like my Percheron/Morgan cross filly, except yours is alot shorter and his hooves are alot smaller than Lucky's.I'm guessing he got some Morgan in him.

I am thinking Morgan also......just a thought. He looks very sweet! Love him!

Looks very quarter horse in video where he is more muscled. Looks attractive and kind

I agree with the others. He looks like a Morgan more than a QH. If he was part QH, he'd be taller. My neighbors have quarter horses, and their HUGE! But he's looks like a sweet boy :)

I would say he is a quarter horse. But he doesn't look very big. So he could be mixed with something else to. I'm also thinking that there is a possiblity he is a quarter horse/mustang, because I had a horse that was a quarter horse/mustang that looks like he does. He seems like a great trail horse.
