I would say FQH, except that he seems very upright for a traditionally bred foundation quarter. Generally they seem downhill, bulldoggish, with a laid back shoulder. Doesn't mean all of them are this way: our 100% FQH mare has a very large, steep shoulder and a looong back, while not being downhill. Your boy looks to me like he is definitely qh, but probably a mix. He seems very small, and actually really reminds me of our QH/Connemara cross. Who knows :)

^haflinger so you can compare, lol. That's definitely not a fqh at all.. them feet are too big so is that heart shaped hind quarter and he's got them feathers to a T, lol.

Immagine that haflinger mixed with a quarter horse.



^ another more palomino colored with less mealy coloring.



^that ones beautiful!

I see part draft in him. I think he's mostly QH with maybe some Belgium. His feet are so drafty. He is a really wonderful horse who is so solid. Just my type! There's something about his legs that reminds me of Z, who is half Irish Draught and half Thoroughbred.

Lets not forget that Joe Hancock was part draft. Percheron if I am not mistaken. There is a lot of draft in QHs. I just sold a purebred QH of Leo and Hancock breeding with very big feet. He is 15 hands and weighs at least 1350.
I stand by the Foundation QH observation I made earlier. I also have a mare bred the same way that is very stout and big boned. Shalom

Joe hancock was a quarter black percheron.. by now I would say the draft is bred out unless someone kept adding black percheron to the blood--its still clear to see he's 1/4 perch.



^joe hancock







^two eyed jack
He is a fqh and what the breed looked like after a few more generations of breeding-- he does not look like a perch at all-- that's what todays fqh looks like.. the perch was bred out over the years.

My foundation Hancock gelding has feathers. I don't have many pictures with the full effect since I tend to trim them up, especially in the summer, not a fan of mud ball feathers.



I have seen a lot of quarter horses with feathers, but if they are shown, they tend to be trimmed up to look more presentable, I would expect Two Eyed Jack was definitely clipped up for any pictures ;)

I don't think this horse is full quarter horse though, his shoulder and neck are too upright, it tells me there is at least some draft in there, perhaps 1/4 draft (belgian?) 3/4 quarter horse? I don't see Halflinger. He has a carriage horse build with more hind quarter muscle.

Blue smoke- your boy is very good looking- I had to look again.. that's the coolest roaning I've seen! Lol. You know they call the big fetlocks snake bite stoppers? Lol.

I beg to differ about two eyed jack- just because I've seen some of his offspring and grand babies-- they were very short coated. Had fetlocks but not like joe hancock- up the backs of the legs, lol. They got the usual show trim for halter but wasnt that hairy as most stock breeds or like joe hancock at all-- I think the breed had evolved a lot by then though.

Thank you, he gets very roan in the spring when he is shedding out, belly and butt mostly.

I guess I was going more for, IF he had feathers, and he may have only had some extra hair on his fetlocks or none at all I don't know, that they would have likely been clipped for the sake of a neat and clean appearance for photos, such as those you posted.

I'm thinking your farrier could be right. I'm also thinking he could be a QH/Belgium cross
