Question Rough Haired Quarter Horse???

I recently bought a purebred QH gelding. He is beautiful in every way possible: colour, personality, soundness, age, etc. The only weird thing about him is that he has a rough coat. His cot is healthy and shiny, it just has this STRANGE texture to it. It almost feels like he was clipped with dull clippers, but I've had him for two months and by now it would have grown out a little. Anyone have any ideas??? I'll see if I can get some pictures that show the difference in his coat.

Cushings hair wouldn't be bright, shiny and healthy looking. It would be rough in combination with being dull looking and wavy with a failure to shed.
