Is this a saddlebred or a sb cross?

I may be trading this gelding for my mare. The lady said he was a saddlebred, she's had him for about a year. I think he's a qh or a draft cross...

I'm actually finding it difficult to see ANY sb in him...so I guess I'll choose cross.

Well...I used to have a quarter horse mare who looked a lot like that.

I wonder why they think he is sb?

Hmm, I don't see much SB in him either...very cute though. I see more QH. Could be a cross.

I see saddlebred!

His face is long and narrow - and his croup is really flat.

I would say that he's not full saddlebred; looks like he was crossed with a draft of some kind (or something with a low-set and thick neck - and heavier bone structure)

He's a cutie! What does she do with him?

She rides western with him. But get this after talking with her all day about trading horses. Her husband comes home and is mad because they were first looking for a gelding who is around 14.3 hands not a mare that's 15h. So then she convinces him to wait a week see if they find anything to trade and if not then they will contact me about is Gypsy is still available.
But if she is advertising him as a chestnut saddledred then sends pics of a painted cross? I don't really think she knows that much about breeds and what not.

I see a little sb, but definitely looks like a cross to me! Could be a draft. How big is he? My first thought though was QH.

Thats what my first thought was to, he is 15.3- 16h.
