    What would you say this big guys breed is?

    The woman I bought him from says she thinks he is an apendix/qh, but I would like some other opinions. Excuse the visible rib cage. He was rescued from almost being starved to death. She has only had him a few months and we are working very hard to fill him out.

    All I see is TB, but Appendix is a possibility too.

    It is possible he is appendix. He seems to have a large head and a coarseness to him that makes me wonder if there might be a little draft mixed in. He also looks very much like a standardbred we once owned. Quarter horses come in such a variety of shapes and sizes it is possible he might just be a grade quarter. He looks like he will be a tank when you get more weight on him. Good for you for helping this boy.

    He looks like my horsey that I "saved" not to long ago. Mine is an appendix, but registered with AQHA. I would def say he is appendix.
    He does not look that skinny, That may just be his typing. Once you find out his breed it will help. Mine is about 16 hands and tall and skinny. He's very "huntery" How old is he? Most young horses go through that "lanky" stage.

    I would say either appendix, Thoroughbred, or Quarter Horse, could be any. I've seen tall thick Quarter Horses, and I've seen Warmblood looking Thoroughbreds that definitely didn't look like most of the Thoroughbreds you see. He's very cute, he's not horribly skinny, could still fill out a bit, but definitely not bad. Hope that you have fun with him.

    I also see draft in him. It's the super flatness of his back and the short neck and shallow depth of hip with tail postitioned more on top. There is an Irish draught at our barn that looks a lot like that. I think there's a small amount of draft in him of some type.

    He is 10 years old is what I was told. So isn't too too young. Perfect age imo!
