Hi everyone, I have had TONS of opinions on my horse Shadow as to what breed he is.
I had bought him as a pure bred Dutch Warmblood, which at the time I really didn't think he was. So from there, this is some of the possibilities I have gathered from opinions. Currently, we are sure he is a Clydesdale warmblood cross.
1. Percheron TB cross
2. Clydesdale TB cross
3. Trakehner TB cross
3. Dutch TB cross
I'm really curious to see what others think weather it's one of those that I listed or not. He is a BIG boy. He is 7 years old as of this spring, and currently 17.2 yet he is the sweetest, gentlest horse you will literally ever meet. He is VERY heavy when jumping, it definitely isn't his thing but he does enjoy and strives during cross country. He is only 7, so his jumping may or may not improve. He is starting to lighten off of his mouth greatly with every ride as his topline builds. His head weighs more than me, and I have to work my butt off to get his face up and looking where he is going when jumping. I have huge pipes for arms thanks to him!
Opinions would be awesome on his breed though!
