Thoughts on possible breed?

Hi there...I purchased a paintX a couple months ago...he was a rescue so I don't know much about him...was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what he may be crossed with?? All I was told was his age...thanks!

Did they say he was a paint cross? He looks a lot like my paint Rem (you can see in my barn) and he is a full registered paint (mostly qh blood with a little tb farther back).
Name?
He is a lovely horse :)

Hmm yea I didn't really look at his head earlier, his body reminds me of my paint but he does have quite the adorable face! I could see Welsh and'or Arabian in that face face shape (the larger jaw tapered to a smaller nose and little ears)

I agree, he could be a pb Paint. They come in different shapes and sizes depending on their breeding and how much Thoroughbred they have in them as well as what line of QH is mixed in the blood ;)

That is a very small head he has. I can see some arab in there. Then again most horses have some anyways so you never can tell how far back. Good luck with him. Shalom
