Exclamation What kind of horse is he? this is kinda urgent!!!!!

Can everyone please go to this thread ( Critique Pumpkin Please. ) and tell me here what kind of horse you think he is?
When I bought him, I was told he was a Quarter horse. He deffinately prefers to have a teeny qh trot, but will extend. he has a MASSIVE canter stride too. is he a mutt? he isnt built like a qh at all, but i have no doubt in my mind that he is at least part qh.
People have asked if he is a quarab, or an appendix and i have NO idea. he stands at roughly 15.1 hh.... hm... i need help.

He looks like a QH to me. No Appendix, and definitely not a Quarab.

He might have been, but it's so diluted by now it doesn't matter.

Both the TB and QH industries used to open their registries from time to time and add outcross breeds to refine certain characteristics. The resulting horses were considered 'purebred' and registered as such.

Occasionally, some of the outcross breed traits will pop up. However, I don't see that in your guy. He looks all QH to me.

Regardless of what some people said on the other thread, that horse is not a TB/QH cross (Appendix), nor does he have any Arab characteristics. His head is regular QH, no dish to it at all.

I see nothing in him except QH.

Urgent is bleeding all over the floor and the vet is on the way but what do I do now. Or equal.

Not geez, guess something that we will never know the answer to.


What does it matter what breed he is? He is a gelding and you are not doing breed shows.

To me he looks like a QH.
