Here's a bad video of me riding him...I know my posting is weird and forced, I've fixed it :)

Also, what is a POA? Is that Pony of the Americas or something? I don't even know if that's a breed but I thought I heard it somewhere...

After watching the video I definitely agree with the Arab part. So I agree with the others saying arab/appy.

That doesnt even look like the same horse as the first pictures. Im leaning towards grey arab X now with a bloodspot.

You really need clean whole body pictures of him without any tack. Full body in good light, clear photos....and a clear, well lit head shot so we can see his face. Im thinking one good set of photos will clear up alot.

Goes to show how decieving pictures can be ;)

Well yes I know. He had just rolled in his paddock so he was quite dirty. Maybe these will help?

Gray with a bloodspot :) 100% Looks like a fleabitten grey too

Very cute Arab X As for crossed with what.....very hard to guess... Id say QH is an easy choice and very possible

He is a nice horse

I think he's pure arab. More of a traditional arab than the new showy arabs, though. He looks a lot like my friend's eqyptian/polish arab cross. He doesn't have the extreme dished face like you see today, but the extent of what you see now is generally bred into them-much like the height has been to warmblood breeds. I know Hanoverians were originally bred for the German cavalry and as cart horses.

I've seen many arabs that just have all of their flee bitten spots concentrated into one area-which is what his splotchy areas look like. Sometimes instead or in addition to having flee bitten spots all over their body, they will accumulate in different spots, from what I've seen they tend to be on shoulders most often.

I agree with Greenas. Seeing him move, he screams Arab to me, I don't really see much of an indication of other breeds. Even if he is mixed, he's mostly Arab for sure...maybe a quarter or an eighth something else.

My half Arab fatty Caleb has the same kind of spots on the right side neck ear and face (non/very few on the left):

Just by the first pic, the colored areas weren't in the right places to be varnish appy. With the new pics there is no doubt at all he's grey.

Wow, you're lucky. An Arab who's mellow. lol, he defiantly looks flea bitten grey with a blood spot.
