What is he??

My barn owner purchased this gelding a year ago. He is 16.2hh and was advertised as a "quarter horse" My best guess is belgian/appaloosa, but I would love to hear your oppinions.

Looks like a roman nosed bay roan quarter horse to me.

I like your guess. I do see draft in him, for sure.

IT's distantly possible that he is a mustang/draft cross, too. There were some draft stallions released into wild horse herds back in the 20's or earlier to help breed "free" farm horses of a good draft type. I think in particular in the Oregon herds, but please correct me if I am wrong on that.

I would guess QH Appy breeding. Appy's aren't a specific breed so he could very well have something else in him

I see no Belgian in this horse at all. I'd say he is Appy x QH.

I don't know much about breeds but to me he looks like he has some sort of draft in him. To me he looks big in a drafty way rather then a QH way. Also the feathering on the fetlock makes me think this. I could see appy in there because of the colour but I'm not sure.

I think you are right! Belgian/Appy!

I see a lot of draft hints; the shape of his hooves, the feathering on the fetlock, the long nose, the way he is very short coupled, his neck which is pretty short and his big shoulder.

Does he have any mottling on his nose or around his eyes? If so he has Appy in him. BUt I can tell he has Quarter in him too. But my guess would be Appy/Quarter.
