Is he gaited? He does look like possibly paso... I also could see him being Mustang.

I could MAYBE see Morgan, but honestly I think just mixed breed pony. Maybe some QH, maybe some welsh back there, maybe Paso.. I just don't see anything that screams Morgan at all, or any breed really. Just an all around pony. I COULD see QH crossed to a leaning-towards-Polish type Arab. The color your guy is (light bay) is just not common at all in Morgans. I also see some pangare on your guy which might suggest Haflinger? Morgans don't have it, I've never seen an Arab with it (not to say it doesn't exist), I'm not sure about QHs at all..

Not sure why everyone seems to think everything is a Morgan cross right now lol, they aren't as common as many other breeds.

I agree everyone seems to think there is morgan in a lot of crosses on here lately, I don't see any morgan in this little guy. Just a lot of mixed blood.

> no I do not see an Arabian in him I have and arab and I think he looks more like a quarter horse cross with a morgan. That's the closest I can guess.

> actully a lot of morgans are bays if you look in any breed book youll see that its really common actully and nothing on that horse looks like a pure arab or even a cross. Wrong confirmation. Here I'll show you....
Morgan The small, compact, and muscular Morgan was bred for his versatility. He is a capable driving horse and also performs well at dressage, cutting, reining, jumping, and endurance. The Morgan stands approximately 14 to 15 hands high and weighs 800 to 1,000 pounds (365 to 455 kg). Common colors are bay, black, and chestnut.
I got that from this website.....

Bay is common. The shade isn't, hence my saying LIGHT bay, and pangare just isn't in the breed period. I've been around Morgans my entire life, all types, old style, foundation, modern, etc. I know Morgans, so it isn't just my saying stuff to be saying stuff with no knowledge of the breed. The breed is my entire life and I study bloodlines, network for rescues, and am involved in the show and breeding worlds. This horse just does not say 'Morgan' or 'Morgan cross' to me at all. And it isn't because of lack of knowledge of Morgans or Morgan crosses.

I see no Morgan at all. I DO see the possibility of Polish-type Arab, as I've already said, but also have said that it really just looks to be a mixed breed pony with nothing standing out. I have known several Polish Arabs that have some conformation similarities to this horse, but mixes can easily have conformation traits similar to a breed that they do not have in them at all.
