    Thoroughbred annnnd?

    So this is JJ, his previous owners told me he was a thoroughbred but I can't help but think he's got something else in there too. Any opinions? He doesn't have any papers

    Does he have a tattoo? Have you looked under his lip?

    He looks TB to me.

    No tattoo, he was a farm raised and never touched a racetrack in his life. I think what throws me off are how "thick" his legs are all the way down.

    Looks TB to me. His legs really arent that thick. Quite normal and slender for his size, actually. If I had to "guess" at a cross, I would go with Quarter Horse and only because of the shape and slope of his hindquarters, though they are not heavily muscled but I still say TB

    Looks all TB to me.

    I have known TBs who could have been mistaken for QHs with as thick and chunky as they were. I've also known one that everyone thought was a warmblood. 17.2hh and absolutely massive.

    The old style TB(my fav style of TB) were much thicker then the modern day TB. Old styles are heavily favored for sport horses. Irish TB's also tend to be much thicker then North American TB's as well. So there is a good chance he is TB. If he was crossed with anything I would lean towards foundation bred QH or possibly a lighter warmblood.

    But lot of the older style TB's are becoming more common these days so there is a good chance he is. I would be interested in knowing his blood lines.
