    He is so gorgeous though! Can't wait to see what he can do with time! And thank you for still using a snaffle on him, even XC. I've seen a lot of people that have big horses, not necessarily strong or spirited, just big, who put them in all sorts of contraptions for "control" when they don't even need it. :/
    I'm not using a snaffle, I ride him in a Gag bit. He is VERY strong, maybe he wouldn't be so strong with a rider that is proportional to his body weight he would be more controllable, but I weigh 5% of him. There is NO way I can ride him in a snaffle, he is way too big for me lol.

    I'm voting Shire/TB cross. And btw, he's amazingly gorgeous!! WOW I love him!

    Certainly a big, beautiful boy! Were you not able to discover anything of his background or previous owners?

    He appears as though he might be an Irish Draft x Shire. Does he grow any feathering? If he grows more than just tufts, then he probably has some heavy Draft in him. I'd go with Shire.

    Looks warmblood . He could be draft x Tb . For draft breed I would guess Shire , Belgium, or Clyde. Belgium being my first pick

    What a cute guy! I instantly thought Perch x TB as soon as I saw his photo, but who knows. Unless you can track down prior owners and see official documentation ... or get some sort of DNA testing then it's just guessing. :)

    Another one for Shire/TB cross. More TB.

    Ok. I could be wrong. But I do see the heavy draft influence, IF he is as slab shouldered as he looks. Plus his butt says he is from a line of get your legs underneath and pull type breeds. If that's just sheen/shiny/shadowy, then I'd have to go with appendix/warmblood.
    I LOVE his head it's gorgeous and nicely shaped. Not entirely out of proportion to the rest of him either IMHO. He just screams that he is a love bug with that cute face. Nice fella you got there.

    He`s not Irish as even though they are heavy set they`re still finer in the face and bones that your boy, judging by colour, facial plane, and overall height and bone my best guess would be thoroughbred, Clyde, maybe a bit of shire. The broad long nose with the moderately sized nostrils and the large ears are a dead give away to the clyde or shire. A friesian, warmblood, trakehner, all have a slightly more refined head, smaller ear, larger nostril, and a slight dishing to the face, all very characterized by facial feature. He may have some trotter or hackney to give him that reach and jumping ability. My friend has a tbxclydexhackney who is only slightly finer and smaller and can be mistaken for a warmblood. Check for an evidence of branding come summer time.
