Suffolk or Italian Heavy Draft?

Someone I know is trying to sell this horse who is a draft cross. We know he is part Morgan (somehow) and I'm wanting to know if the other part of him is Suffolk Punch or Italian Heavy Draft.
I don't have the best pictures of the horse for sale, but these are the best I have.

Here is Fredrick (the horse for sale):

That's his head. I don't know how much you'll get from that.


This is the best side picture I have right now.


Another picture of his head and chest.

Okay. Here are some pictures of Italian Heavy Drafts:

This is the picture that made me think he might be part IHD. The butts look exactly the same.


This doesn't really look like him though.

Okay, now for the Suffolk Punch:







The Suffolk Punch looks more like him, so that's what I'm leaning towards, but I want more opinions. Thanks so much guys!

I don't think he is a Suffolk.

Well, he's not full-bred. I thought he looked kind of like one. What does he look like he might be?

Well yea, I'm saying he doesn't look like the Suffolk as his other breed. Sorry, I tend to be vague.

That's a tricky one, he could be Suffolk but very unlikely as that tends to be on of the rarer draft breeds.

Oh, I didn't know that. I don't really need to know what he is, I was just wondering. So if anyone knows TELL ME!

I think belgian or percheron is more likely. For the sake of argument, I'll say belgian:P Some better body shots might help, but its often hard to tell with draft crosses.

I'm not sure what an Italian heavy draft is but it doesnt look like a suffolk.

Where did he come from?

I'm not sure where he came from. I don't think he's belgian because those horses are palominos, right? All the belgian crosses i've seen are all palominos.

They come in other flavors:)

This guy, for example is perch/belgian:


Not sure what this boy's other half is, but he's part-belgian:


Belgian/tb here:


Belgian/hackney:


Belgian, percheron, clydesdale and shire crosses are probably the most common here in the states...something about the shape of his head just says belgian or percheron to me.
