What breeds have Roman noses?

I saw someone post pictures of their horses with Roman noses, and I was wondering what breeds typically have that sort of structure?

Roman noses are most commonly seen in Drafts as well as Standardbreds i've noticed. Some "exotic breeds" such as the Barb often have the roman nose as well.

A lot of Spanish horses have them. I love the look of it on the right horse, but I think it's considered a flaw on a lot breeds. Except the drafts and whatnot. Norman's got a little bit of a Roman nose, come to think of it.

For instance, I think is draft horse is gorgeous:

But that same "flaw" isn't so pretty on this Brazilian horse.

Really? To each their own, I guess. He does have pretty eyes.
This one is the same breed. Sounds like they're supposed to have Roman noses, but this one is a little over the top.

Edit: Sorry for the page stretch!

Roman noses are common (and sometimes are considered a breed trait) in Iberian/related breeds, such as Lusitanos, Andalusians, Lipizzanners, etc.

The bay looks like an English Bull Terrier in horse form.

ANY breed can have a roman nose. A lot of ranch bred QH's have them.
