So I recently bought a horse, in February. He is an 11 year old dark bay gelding, we got him from an awful, awful, awful place where they didn't feed their horses. So, naturally, we got absolutely no history on him. I recently moved him to a new barn where the barn hand remarked that when she saw him running in the field, she thought he was a Morgan.
When we bought him we were told he was a Quarter Horse, however, Quarter Horse can be quite a broad term nowadays. But the comment about him being a Morgan made me think that he might have some Morgan or Arab in him. He has a naturally sort-of-high head and neck set and he arches his neck often. Its kind of hard to get him to go "long and low" he sort of more...prancy(?), and he always has his tail carried slightly high. Also, especially at the canter, he seems to lift his feet and legs higher than you would expect for a Quarter Horse.
Am I making sense so far? :)
So my question is this, does anyone see any Morgan or Arab in him, at all?
Please keep in mind that I know next to nothing about the two breeds :)
I hope I don't sound too crazy
