I'm with Indy and the others who said grade paint or QH.

That horse isn't anywhere close to being gaited, and sure as heck doesn't look anything like a TWH, MFT, or any of the other gaited breeds.

There's something 'off' about him, too. Can't tell if it's just in his rear end, or something else is bothering him as well.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I have grown up around TWH, Paso Finos, and Spotted Saddle horses, and.... I see nothing gaited about this horse.

I vote grade QH.

Horsecrazy, why do you keep posting threads asking what breed people think this horse is? Do you think we will come up with a new opinion if you keep asking?

My thoughts? He is a Paint cross with a sore hind end and he is not gaited, whatever you want him to be. I also have never heard anything good about barbed wire.

I posted a thread a while back but I didn't have a video and now I did. You can't really see anything by pictures and I posted a thread in the gaited breeds section because more gaited folks go there, thought they might see something different that's all. Fencing is just personal opinion. He has never acted sore or off in any way, nothing unusual anyway.

He looks very - very - young and undeveloped. The first thing I thought when I saw him trot out was that his hind end is very wonky... I really didn't get past that and the fact that he looks so darn young - in my opinion, not nearly developed enough to be carrying that saddle and a grown man.
I vote for maybe paint or QH.

He isn't conditioned but he is definitely at least 4. I'm not sure if he was underfed as a youngster. He was ribby when we got him and has put on weight and muscle. He carries his rider fine but I agree he does need more muscle tone.

That you are willing to admit you see, obviously.

How many people have said that parked out stance is not something normal and it most likely is the sign of soreness?
How many people have said he does not move right and that is most likely a lameness issue?
You are the only who seems to think he has never acted sore or off in any way.

I went back and looked at the video you posted of him in your thread back in April and he looks not right behind when being lunged in that video too.

I'll have to watch the videos again and see if I see something. Several have said parking out can indicate pain but it could also be a taught thing. Like I've said before, we know nothing about his past other than he was loose in a pasture with other horses. I know of several people who have non gaited horses and they still teach them to park out for mounting and such. I could get my registered QH mare to park out when I asked her to. I'll take another look at the videos. In the video of him loping he's coming toward me and it'd be hard to see anything "off" in the rear there. I wanted to get a video of him going straight across but didn't work out that way.
