Is my previous horse a full American Quarter Horse or is he mixed with something?

Hey Guys, My previous horse was a quarter horse but some people say he was a mix with another breed but they didn't know what other breed and some people say he was full quarter horse. He was a rescue horse so we don't know for shore.Please tell me is you think we was a full quarter horse or a mix or something else.

Looks part QH and part bumblebee to me. Probably would have to get a genetic test to be sure, though.

Looks like a Quarter Horse Bumble Bee cross to me. Very cute.

When you forget about about the bumblebee costume. Do you think he is full Quarter Horse?

possibly, but its hard to say with him saddled and on that angle. If you have any pictures of him standing squared up and side on it will be easier for people to give you a guess. He looks like a nice horse whatever his breeding is though.

Definitely not the classic stocky QH build, but there are plenty of leaner QHs also. Impossible to tell either way w/o knowing the parents, Imho.

Unless you either have his papers or know bth his parents there a no way to know for sure. He might not be qh at all. Could be a solid bred Appaloosa or paint. Or even just some random mutt. We cannot tell anything by just pictures without the above knowledge.

I have a full thoroughbred with papers. I still have people argue its me that she cannot possibly be a thoroughbred because she is only 15.2 Hh and very dainty. I've had people say Arabian, Morgan, and even qh.

I'd say the bumblee bee half is the only obvious half. He could be QH or not. Doesn't change the fact that he seems to be a really nice, well put together and tolerant boy. Sweet face! I wouldn't worry about the what if's.
