What breed is Nelson?

If you've been following, you'll know I just purchased Nelson. I was told that he was QH. I am wondering if he is a QH, or is he another breed. His facial features just don't look like other QHs I've seen. His head is alot shorter, his eyes are more square, among other things. Any thoughts?

The only paperwork I got with him was his coggins.

I can see what you mean about his face. To me, it looks more like a pony face, especially in the second image and the second last one. There's just something distinctively pony about his face to me. Maybe he's only half QH and half pony of some sort? Perhaps try asking the owners if there's any other breed in him.
He's a very beautiful boy though!!

Yep in his face he looks like a pony. But you can't be sure of anything if you don't have the papers.

He is definitely adorable! :) When I saw the pics, the first thing that popped into my head was definitely a pony of some sort...it's hard to say. He does look like a QH in his body, though.

I would say he is QH...

I think he is a quarter horse. I don't really think he looks like a pony. I have seen lots of qhs with heads like Nelson's. I think he has an attractive head and expression.

Don't be fooled by the more refined head. The one gelding I had I raised as a foal all the way until he was broke to ride under saddle. He was a fully papered Foundation QH and he has the head of an arab.
The body of your guy looks more refined than some QHs but his body scream QH to me. He has very fine facial features. A very friendly looking guy.

Cute!! I'd definitely say QH. They come in all shapes and sizes with different heads, but I've seen a lot of QH faces just like his!

Quarter Horse. He is the spitting image of a horse I had 20 years ago. I had to find an old picture of him to be sure.

Cat Nap Que was his registered name and he was double registered with AQHA and PHBA. If he is like "Jack", he will shed out in the summer to be a surprisingly beautiful horse.
