I don't see any arabian, at all. His light build and neck make me think maybe a saddlebred, twh, or something along those lines, but not arabian...

Looks like a TB with Standerbred, or maybe welsh or arab..

What screams out to me is his neck- it's just too long and skinny to me to be arab. I can see why he might look to have arab from the last picture, but the first picture looks nothing like an arab, imho- the face doesn't have the proportions, to me. The problem is, that angle is a little funny, so that might change it, although I don't think so. Can we have more pics? I'd like to see him from the side, maybe actions shots, that might help. I think his movement will really make this easier. Does he have a nice, floaty trot? Is he animated at all?

Now that I came back something really looks like a TWH to me.. I'm still seeing Thoroughbred though, it's something about his face, it's looks "Throughbredy" to me . Maybe I'm losing my mind.

I can't see any standardbred in him, but I agree with possibly part arabian (maybe sire was only half arab, making the colt a quarter arab?) or maybe some TWH?

I have that horses twin in my pasture.
He is marked exactly like your gelding except he has a diamond on his forehead.
If i could post a picture I would. I would have to take one first though.
My gelding is a 1/2 arab 1/2 QH.
I bought his mother and was given the gelding.
I say your is probably the same cross. He looks to be very refined for a TWH or STB IMO. Shalom
