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.
