What breed do you think this colt is?

Hi Everyone!

Back in May I rescued a colt who we believe is between 1 and a half and 2 years old... Not sure though! Monaco arrived completely wild and terrified of us. He has taken huge steps and is truly a wonderful boy. When the flies start to die off he will be gelded, but even as a stud he is a complete joy to be around! Anyways I have no clue what breed or breeds Monaco is... We have all taken a couple guesses but would love to hear what you all think! One photo is him in VA before he would have shipped to slaughter and a couple are his first day with us when he arrived on June 10th. Today he started his first parelli lesson which is of course the photos of him with the man leading him. I will also attach a video of him when he was with the broker. They are not the best photos... I will try to get more! Anyways any input or feedback at all is greatly appreciated!

Thanks a bunch!

He looks Thoroughbred to me. Or Appendix QH. Definitely 100% beautiful.

I hope you have him on a deworming schedule. That's one big belly.

I agree appendix 1/4 or TB cross. Looks like he will turn into a nice horse.

He is on a deworming schedule, he has a big hay belly! We all think tb as well! He has red in his ears and roaming throughout his body... Can you see the lopsided heart on his bum in one of the photos? Can tbs have gray/red roaning? In his video you can see his white knees... I think this is an unusual marking but maybe I'm wrong?

Thanks for the kind words everyone! He is a special boy :)

There is probably a good chance that he was chestnut before he greyed out. Horses arent born grey, its a modifying gene that happens over time. Eventually he will end up all white.

Kind of like people going grey. They had color to their hair ones, but it lost pigment and started to turn silver, then grey, then finally white.

Handsome fellow. I see he is pacing in one pic. Does he do that often?
