Does he gait? He kinda looks like a Tennessee Walker to me.

I don't know where some of you are seeing QH or TWH. He looks like a TB. QHs and TWHs look entirely different.

I still say that parking out stance is indicative of pain somewhere. Horses don't park out like that naturally, even gaited horses.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Just for fun-confo critique. What do you all think?

Perhaps I am blind, but I don't see THAT much difference betwwen him and my guy-who is NOT gaited, but is a TWH/Qh X. I think it is a possibility, personally. How old is he? Mine is 6 and is actually a PMU rescue-so perhaps yours was too?

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

But there are some differences in the breed. I have a TB and every TB I've seen cant live off of grass alone, and are as calm and level-headed as he is. But I'll take it in consideration... It's just hard for me to imagine it.
And I know, the pictures aren't that great.
And he's standing like that because he parks out, He always does it on lead when hes standing or when he's tied up. I rarely see him do it in the field.
His withers aren't as high as they look, I blame the butt.

Not all TBs are hot. I have a young stallion and he is the most mellow horse I have ever met. But your horse looks kind of like a quarter/TWH cross to me. He has the head of a quarter but his body looks almost walkerish.

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.
