Talking Narrowing It down?? what could he be?

ok so this is somewhat similar to my previous post from last week (except I asked it on the wrong thread -.-) My horse is Brodie a 9 or 10 year old Quarter horse gelding. 15.3 hands not registered. From the previous thread people said he looked like these horses:

1.Appendix with Thouroughbred dominating
2. Standardbred
3.American saddlebred?
4. Morgan

He is most likely a quarter horse but he is a mix of something else.
Here is a picture I took today when he is perfectly calm:

here is a picture from june:

Here is at his first show...pumped up:

there are pictures of him trotting but I am not going to put them up because his head is up and his back is not round so that would make you think different. so what does he look like? I need to know and I don't know anyother way to figure it out. Can a vet determine what breed? or a blood test or anything? I just want to know for future shows. I want to enter him in hunter on the flat and over fences :) thank you! I just wanna get peace of mind witht this aha

his butt/hund reminds me of a Morgan..but the rest of him looks like an Appendix.
That's just my guess of course, but his butt/hind looks exactly like the Morgan that's at my barn, haha. I only see any trace of morgan being there though, the rest looks all Appendix, especially with his height.

He definitely looks like he has Thoroughbred in him ;)

He looks like an Appendix to me. Whatever he is, he's a very handsome boy! :)
