The shape of his head looks Iberian/Spanish. To me, a draft horse has a deeper jowl. Also, the height is about right.

Maybe it's because I am used to looking for old Spanish type. Not the PRE/ANdalusian/modern spanish that seems to be very over exaggerated. I can't look at it and see anything but draft though. Especially the big eye. Even when I cover up the eye and look at parts of the head I still see draft influence

What is Spanish Type?

The feathering leads me to believe that he has draft in him. Other than that I can't tell very much else.

He doesn't have the extreme jowl you're right, but I still see draft, definitely not full or probably not even half draft but it's there. The height is perfect for a Paso type, IDK, I'm not too familiar with Paso breeding programs they may have heads like that, I don't think so I'll do some research I'm really not sure what really in a Paso, I know they claim to have predominant Spanish origins but some things I've seen hint otherwise

I'm seeing Belgian in the background, likely not close up. Good big hooves, nice bone. Good mountain horse.
