    I learned something new. Had no idea what a steep croup was. So from what I'm reading is it when their rump kind of slopes down toward their tail? I found a forum where they are showing pictures but I know so little about conformation that honestly the pics don't look that different to me.

    I plan on getting him in better shape when I buy him definitely.

    He definitely looks like a few QH I know.

    Pretty much, yep- the croup is basically the part right above the tail and below that point that's the top of the hip. QH's usually have steeper ones so that they can 'dig down' and get their back legs under themselves better for stopping and such. I can't see your boy's since it's cut off in the picture, but maybe you can look at him and compare/etc. Here's a picture I found here (North Horse: Weanling Conformation Clinic) of some weanlings. D has the steepest, as you can see, lol.

    Looks like a skookum old style QH to me.

    Looks like a QH with a typical Two Eyed Jack head :) some of those had the biggest heads I have ever seen on a horse lol

    Soenjer55 thanks for that awesome photo! Okay now I can see what a steep croup looks like.

    I'm going to look up skookum horse and two eyed jack as well. It would be nice to even have an idea. Thank you for those suggestions!

    Yes he does have a very big head. It's not just the angle of the photo. His head is that big! Lol. His face always has that sweet, sleepy eyed, kind of dopey look too, which I love.

    That's interesting. Aires has Two Eyed Jack through his (paint) sire's side. I always attributed his jug head to the Percheron in him, but the Two Eyed Jack could be contributing to that (his half-sister from the same sire has a smaller head that actually looks fairly similar to the OP's boy).

    He mostly looks like a Quarter Horse, but his face seems a little drafty to me.

    Joe Hancock had a lot of percheron in him they say. I am sticking with a hancock bred qh. Shalom
