    What breed do you think??

    I got this guy about a year ago. He isn't registered but I was told he was foundation QH... Our farrier says he is a haflinger cross.... Says his build, his coloring and his feet are what makes him say that. Doesn't matter to me either way I just love him to death but I'm curious what others think... He stands 15.2 and weights just shy of 1,300lbs. I'm told his coloring is dunalino because he has a dorsal strip and leg markings (zebra strips). He has the personality of a Labrador and yes he has big feet LOL.

    Looks like a QH to me. Don't see any Haffie in him at all.

    I own a Haflinger cross and I agree with all the others, definitely foundation Quarter Horse! Might I add, what a beautiful boy to boot too!

    I had someone suggest maybe QH and American Cream Draft horse... Thought that was interesting. I started looking up pictures and he sure is built like one and does have the big hooves!!!!

    He is stocky, but I would think he would have an even wider chest if he was 1/2 draft.

    I would venture to say a Leo or Hancock bred QH. Those are some stout fellows.
    What he is ...a nice horse, anyone should be proud to own. Shalom

    I can see him being part haflinger- we used to have a haflinger quarter pony cross that looked like a quarter pony that was a very light palomino.

    I've seen a haflinger crossed with a 16 hand aqha stud that turned out with a body like that and with the studs color- you wouldnt know she was a haflinger cross if you didnt know her dam--she does have the longer fetlocks just like that and the bigger feet too- way more stocky than the impressive and two eyed jack bred fillies was, lol.

    he's way too stocky to be foundation quarter horse (my opinion) he's got the body of a haflinger- the feathering and light color- only thing missing is the mealy coloring.

    He's precious!

    Foundation qh's are sometimes stockier than regular qh's. They fall under the "bulldog type". My dad leases a 95% foundation gelding & he looks to be built the exact same as your horse.

    Here's a picture if you want to compare.

    I say QH Draft cross. His feathered feet, big hooves and thick build make me think this. The other 'look' of the horse makes me say QH.
