I too guess Thoroughbred or Appendix. Poor boy, glad he's been rescued.

Poor animal, it makes me so sad to see what people do to animals like that. Great to hear someone is finally taking care of him.

Agree Thoroughbred..if you can, and without getting bit, check his lip for a tattoo..that would tell you for sure. 95% of TBreds are off track and tattooed if they are from (bred) at a racing farm.

Actually, they are not tattooed at the farm. They get tattooed at the track. There are LOTS of TB's that don't make it to the track. Lots...

Joie good point...the two farms I have dealt with have the tattoo done on site as they are training farms but if the horse in question here DOES have a tattoo it would definitely identify him as TBred :)

I'm gonna say Appendix QH as well :). I'm glad those wounds are being treated, they look like they hurt terrible. I'm glad he got out of that situation. Poor guy.

I'm also seeing TB. So glad to hear he's been rescued. I live in Ocala, FL where a huge majority of TBs are bred (potentially) for the track. It is sad that there are so many OTTBs that need homes. That is one of my beefs with the racing industry. I do love driving through horse farms everywehere I go - especially when it is foaling time and there are tons of mares and foals in the fields. Let us know if you decide to get him.

Wow, he looks a lot like my boy, just a thin version. What a handsome boy.

He could be anything, but Tb most likely. Too many faults to have been kept a stallion for this long. If you get him, make sure you don't pay much for him. Most in this condition and a stallion, with maybe no training, would be given away or sent to the killer auction.

I don't know your background or experience, but if you are not very experienced around older stallions and the training he will need after gelding, then pass on this boy.
