13 yr old Paint Draft X

Budweiser is our 13 year old paint draft cross, or so we were told upon purchasing him. He is 15 hands if he stands real tall.....Pick him apart! He is used just for pleasure, no specific discipline, really. We do whatever fancies us that day :) Mainly very basic dressage, I suppose you could say. We've had him for a bit over a year now. Just curious what you all thought of his conformation! Also curious what you think he might excel in due to his conformation. Hope the pictures are okay.
On that note, while I have you all, if anyone wants to take a stab at his possible breeding, I'd love to hear the guesses. We really don't know! Coat pattern too!
Thanks :)

He actually to me, just looks like a SERIOUSLY stocky paint. I see no feathering around his legs and he just seems all paint to me. There are some mamothlly stocky paints out there!

Is shoulder is straight looking to me. His neck is a little long for my liking. His legs seem good and straight. He looks a TAD bit cowhocked in his back legs. His back is long. He has a small hip, but a lot of muscle back there.

I do not do English, so I'm not exactly sure what he would excel in. But if your doing dressage and he likes it stick with it!

Thanks :) We will be sticking with it, I just thought it would be fun to know what he might be conformationally good at, whether we givve it a try or not. English or western!

long back, maybe a bit swayed, goose rumped(I beleive thats the term), small hip in proportion to his size, steeper shoulder.

I would guess unregistered paint, I really dont see alot of draft influence here

My guess would be a Percheron X Paint. He looks it in the face
As for conformation, his shoulder is nice and big but a tad upright
Thick neck!
He appears to be standing under himself in a few photos, but that could just be the way he is positioned. Front legs look good otherwise
Hooves have a little too much slope to them
Back is a decent length but swayed
VERY prominent point of croup and the angle down to his actual croup is quite steep
If he were standing square, i think his hind legs would line up correct
