I love him!! Big and stocky and sweet.

Just judging from his appearance, my 2 top guesses would be either Mustang or some sort of draft cross. If he is a mustang though, he would have had to be born after his mother was adopted or else he would have been branded.

He sure reminds me of my former mustang boy, big feet and all. Koda only stood about 14.2 and wore a size 2 shoe.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He definitely struck me as a possible mustang. And yes, it would have been after his mother was adopted as he has no brand on the left side. He is a very quiet gelding. He allowed all our curious mares to come up to the trailer with him and never started neighing at them or trying to back out. He waited until we cued him to back out and then stood and greeted them with noses touching. No kicking or squealing from any party.

He seems to have been taught to listen to leg cues, which I was super excited about.

He looks like a cool dude! Someone probably already mentioned it, but maybe he has some draft influence?

Good eye smrobs. He does look like a Mustang. I trained a bay tobiano Mustang once, (though I am not sure if he was 'legally' full blood), so possibly your boy could be a cross at least.

Some of the mustang herds had draft infusions, so it's entirely possible he's both.

I like him. He's my kinda horse; short, wide, and has big feet!

You can't really go wrong with big feet. Small feet now, that's another issue.

Interesting! He is my first "true" paint. He's labeled as a tri on his coggins, but I remember reading that true tri paints are very rare. I think he'd just be considered a bay paint as his black points only appear at the tips of his stockings and on the tips of his ears and mane.

I am in love with his build. He has a fast walk, but is very smooth.
