    What breed do you think he is?

    Hey all! So I got walter at auction and have no clue what breed he might be, so I'd love some input! I think he might be gaited but I have never owned or ridden a gaited horse so I'm not all that sure, I will post a video by Friday for you guys to see. He is 16H, 8 years old, he also has a few belly spots. Also as you can see in the pics he is branded so I was also wondering if anyone know if there is a way to find out who's brand it is?

    Well he is definitely a quarter horse lol. Look at that butt!! And he is not gaited from what I see. In the first pic I am guessing he's trotting and his legs are moving diagonally not laterally.

    Doesn't look like any gaited horse I know, and his movements are all wrong for that. I'm thinking a Qh because he's built with that stock type. His face and long back puts me off a little bit, but I can't say anything for sure; there are SO many QH types. Maybe he has a touch of TB in him?

    This is the gait I think he does when I'm riding him, it's super fast and smooth, my friend rides with me but she doesn't know anything about gaitied horses so I won't know for sure until I get video of him doing.

    He looks like a nicely put-together Paint. The second picture shows that he is not gaited; he's trotting in the picture.

    Or maybe he just has a really nice smooth fast trot and that's all it is. Either way he's fun to ride, and he does also do a normal trot.

    He definitely looks pure qh. I know a lot of qhs with long backs. He's probably not gaited, just smooth :). His head looks qh too. I think the blaze makes it look almost roman but its an illusion. My parents have a lot of qhs and they are all different looking. One's tall and lanky and anothers short and stocky. Depends on their breeding. Plus I see that brand and it makes me think qh because that is what ranches normally have.

    I know seriously, Qh's has such a wide range of looks it's almost mind boggling

    See on that video you can see his legs moving laterally. That's gaited. On a nongaited horse, the legs move diagonally like in your first pic. That's a lot of the difference. :). I think you have a grade qh. Or solid paint.
