Off hand I would say he is what we used to call a running 1/4 horse. The 1/4 horse race people threw in some thourobred in the lines for a little more speed and yes they did tatto their animals in the lip. You can go on the web and find out. I believe it is the last no. In the tatoo that will tell you the year of birth.
I don't think you can really just tell a horses breed without the actual studies up on it. Like and expert to tell you. Just because you saw a horse in a book that looks like that horse doesn't mean its that breed. And I highly doubt its a Budenny just saying.
You can tell a horses breed by looking at it.
I do it all the time!
Is that your horse because it is not a tb.
It is defenetly a qh.
If that's your horse you've been cruel to it.

CRUEL CRUEL CRUEL!('')
Rachluvshorses4eva - This clip is a hunter clip. It is not in the slightest bit cruel, and it is in no way right down to the skin. This horse looks in perfect health and has a fantastic coat, which is glowing.
There are thousands, upon thousands of horses/ponies here in the UK that have this clip of similar. They have this clip if they are in heavy work during the winter. I generally have my mare clipped all over, legs too. And I can assure you, I am not in the slightest bit cruel.
