What breeds is he?

This is a horse Im looking at buying. I haven't meet his owner yet but he is in for training at my B.O.'s and I fell in love with him. I might buy him(probably will)but I would like to see what you guys think his breeds are. Thanks! =)

I had to laugh when I read this. I don't know much about horse breeds but when I was riding him I said to my B.O. "here's the oldenburg I've always wanted". If he turns out to be an oldenburg I will laugh so hard lol.

He has a very stocky build! I can see the morgan in him, even though it's only a hair!

I'd like to say think his sire may have been a QH type paint. But it's possible perhaps a spotted draft as well, given the build of him.

His father was obviously a pinto of some sort, probably grade.

I was wondering why anyone would think he looked like an Oldenburg. He has none of the characteristics of that particular breed, and grade pintos aren't exactly rare.

He's definitely cute, regardless of his breeding.

speed racer I honestly am TERRIBLE at breeds I just like taking wild guesses. I have no idea why I thought it was an oldenburg...pretty much the only types of breeds I know anything about are paints, QH's, TB's, and WB's. :)

He is an adorable little pinto!

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

Haha, no offense to mct97, or the OP, meant at all, but that's another thing should be on the pet peeve list - when someone picks up a 300$ horse at auction, posts a picture, and everyone thinks is a fjord-trakehner-icelandic pony-knabstrupper-selle francais cross, as opposed to a typical QH, Appy, TB, or welshie cross, because those unusual types are so common as dirt that everyone is breeding grades out of them right?

Hey I was just joking when I said here's my Oldenburg to my trainer lol. I would much rather have myself a Paint or QH but I love this guy, no matter what he is. Just wanted to hear your guesses.
