My new rescue colt is a ???

I took on this boy about 7 weeks ago and was told his Dam was a QH and the sire she had no idea. The Dam was not in the best of shape so it was hard to tell. She was also very pregnant and her colt was just 10 months.
The stud was in the best shape since he no doubt ate any food left for them. My boy is a rehab project so it's hard to tell for sure but there are certainly more experienced eyes on here I am sure. I can't seem to get pics to load here so for now I will put them in my Album. We named the colt Montana Storm.

I'm seeing a lot of Arabian in his face, especially in the last picture. :)

Here are the pictures for everyone else.

I'm also seeing Arabian, and something about him looks like a miniature thoroughbred. Perhaps Anglo-Arabian .

Poor guy, his eyes look so sad. Many blessing to you for taking him in! I'm also seeing Arabian, but absolutely no QH...perhaps his old owners were wrong about the dam?

Montana

Well the owner had the mare for 12 years and is committed to her being a QH She did honestly look QH to me just in poor condition. I don't have pics of her but do of the stud and will post those in my album. I can't tell what he is by looking at him. My husband thinks maybe there is Morgan in him and I had thought maybe TWH but he has no noticable gate at all so I think that is out.

What I can tell you is he is prettier than both his parents. (now anyway) My farrier says he has good feet and is well put together. He does not think he has the legs to be a TB so that is probably out. It's hard to tell in the pic but he turned a year on 5/4/12 and still wears a foal halter his head is so petite. The owner said Mom is 14.3 and Dad looks to be about 15.1

If he's 1/2 gaited, theres a good chance that he wouldn't be gaited. We have a QH x ASB gelding (I'll post a picture so that you compare, since that's the cross that your boy would be) who's mother was gaited, but he isn't at all. He does have flashier movement than the average QH though and takes big, sweeping strides at the trot with a lot of knee action. No actual gaiting though.

(ignore the guy being pulled...this is the only trotting picture I have of him)


Then theres Duke who's a Peruvian Paso x Arabian gelding, who has one gaited parent- but he DOES gait, and quite nicely at that. BIG showy movements too.

I can tell you one thing for sure. If I came across the old owners they wouldn't be having the mare for 13 years. Neglect, pure & simple.

You've done a fantastic job with your baby. I wonder if the mare's next baby will be so lucky to find someone like you?

He looks a lot like a (registered) QH that is being boarded at my barn right now, but possibly some TWH with that head?

I'm not really seeing any Arabian. TWH or Standerdbred maybe.
