    Tianimalz: yeah I know some look thoroughbred. And the truth is, a lot of qhs have thoroughbreds back in their pedigrees but not enough to be called appendix. Too little tb blood to really matter. But yeah, racing qhs and stock qhs look different.

    Thanks that makes sense! I really know nothing about gaited horses but all the horses I have had in the past have had a very bumpy fast trot so I thought it was a little weird. I will still take a video and maybe post it just so I can see how he moves better. There is not much room for the horses to run in our arena.

    You are welcome :) some mustangs are gaited too. They do something called "single footing". It is smooth too. But yeah, you're horse is definitely not gaited. I had a big Tennessee Walker and he was awesome

    I guess he's a keeper then. I have also had some arabians in the past, all were pretty bumpy, but nice horses, I would like to get another arabian some day but It hard enough finding time to ride one horse, don't think I could handle another, but maybe in a few years when I'm done with school.

    Also how do you guys think he looks weight wise? I thought he looked pretty good, although he needs some more muscle but a girl I was riding with said he looked under weight, so now I'm all freaked out and have uped his food but I don't want him to get fat...

    He looks fine. She might have said that because he has a high croup but he looks fine

    Okay thanks! Her horse is pretty fat so maybe that is just what she is used to.

    His weight looks fine as far as body fat goes, I bet if you got him on a nice work program he'd buff up real nice!! Would love to see some pictures of him afterwards
