I'm feeling draft quarter cross. His neck is sooooooo thick. His tail and mane don't have the traditional wavyness to it either. I like that his butt and wither height are about the same.

Is this a good enough picture? I know his neck is turned, but I can't find many pictures from this year when he's in a better position than this.

He is definitely Morgan, and he is only 14.1-14.2 hands. And yes his neck is thicker than usual, but there is some of that thickness that can be reduced with more condition, so it's not actually that thick. Cut an inch or two off I'd say :p

Is this a better picture for you to judge? I'm sorry about how his head is turned..but I don't have many pictures of him from this year, where he isn't in action, or at an odd angle

Here is another picture of him from this summer. He's not fully conditioned, he's only about half ways conditioned.
He is a much better looking horse in this picture and more typy

I had a Morgan gelding for a few months who had almost identical conformation. Super thick neck. I can't really say anything about it because I'm not good with it.

The little morgan I use to ride looked exactly like him, except bay. I love this type of morgan, stocky and athletic.

Justin Morgan was a drafty built morgan Morgans were originally farm horses. The lippit line is based on his build.

Okay, so he has a good build for his background? Because I know his sire and dam's name if you want them. And does anybody know what kind of use he is specified for? I'm going to endurance ride him, and AERC qualify him for the Tevis since he's a really good endurance horse, but when I get an Arab for FEI, I'll be so tied up in that, so I'll want a sport that I can do for fun while I'm not conditioning and at rides. And while Bubbles will still be used for endurance to be qualifying for the Tevis, he's really tough, so he can handle the second sport. So I'd like to know what an appropriate sport would be?
