A Wild Quarter Horse?

I got this guy a week ago and was told that he is Quarter Horse. After digging around and contacting some people I found out that he was part of a herd that was found. After no one claimed the herd, the colts/stallions were gelded and everyone was sold. He was about 2 when he was first sold and he is now 6. He has no brands or tattoos and, of course, is not papered.
Does he look Quarter Horse to you guys?

Yes and no..

Got to say though.. love the first photo!

I'm not sure if you can do this with horses.. get a blood test done? I know with dogs you can if you are unsure of the breed!!! (yes you can before anyway saids anything LOL)

I'm not sure I am no expert, he could be but I always thought of quarterhorses being somewhat chunky for lack of a better word.

Looks a bit like my Appendix.

Doesn't sound like he was "wild"--more "abandoned" or "feral."

'chunkiness' depends on the type of bloodlines the QH has

Around here I generally don't see many stocky Qh's, they're just your typical 'home bred' type :)

Doesn't much remind me of a QH, but I'm DEFINITELY no expert. But holy crap he's beautiful! I love his eyes in the first pic.
JustAwesome-Those genetic tests are poopy for dogs :/ I worked for a clinic that offered them and after a couple come back with ridiculous results we gave up on them haha. I WISH they were accurate though. Would be so awesome.

Oh really? That stinks! If only we had legit testing here! Lets put our heads together and create some sort of device that can scan what breed they are Ha ha ha!

Yeah we had some kind of obvious poodle, small dog mix....but apparently there was Great Dane in there somewhere. Hahaha.

Gah if only they did have it for horses!

ClassicRascal-Just out of curiosity, do you know how tall he is?

Ok cool the only QH's I have seen/been around have been somewhat stocky. Whether they were papered ones from studs or just the 'home bred' type.
