    I'm not sure what breed my horse is anymore...

    So I've had my horse ever since he was born and I talk about him a lot on the forum but I'm starting to have doubts on what breed he is.. I got his mom at an auction along with another horse. They said the other horse was a quarter horse and Rocky's mom was a quarter horse, even though see was clearly a paint and the other horse was a Tennessee walker who was often showed because of its impressive gait. They didn't mention that both horses had been breed. So later on we sold the walker and keep the paint ( Rocky's mom) and she unexpectedly gave birth to what I believe to be a paint who I named Rocky, I was looking back on photos today and came across one that doesn't have regular paint features as far as the shape of his head. Then again he is only 16 months old. So I decided I'd ask what everyone else things.? I can only post one picture at a time. image.jpg I hope it pulls up.

    Oh both of the horses I got at the auction were mares, they wherent breed together but both pregnant. I guess I stated that wrong the first time. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have any walker in him

    I see walker/SSH as well in that head.
    Can't tell much from his body in that pic, a side pic would be better to judge from. More weight would probably change how he looks as well, he's a bit thin.

    Paint is a breed.. pinto is a colour/pattern.

    Are you sure the mom was a paint horse and not just coloured like a pinto?

    I'm not 100% sure I can get a picture of the mom and side picture of him though

    My guess is SSH, maybe crossed with TWH. I think the shape of her face/head is similar to Dewey's. He is definitely by a SSH stud out of a TW mare.

    Here are some pics of him spread over 9 years.

    PS He is 17 years old now, I owned him from 9 to 13 yrs old, then had to find him a new home :( then last winter my daughter happened across him on craigslist and brought him home. He is boarded at the stable where she works and is part leased out to cover his board. He is 17 in the last pic, with a leaser on him at a hunter-pace, I think my daughter is on the TB in front.
