I can hardly believe, that you apparently own this horse, that you've bathed him, had a saddle pad on him and still do not know if he's a gelding or stud. Do you know about all the other horses in the background? Maybe you should check them, or you might be having some unwanted pregnancies.

Anyway, I think he's going to turn out to be a rather a nice little horse. Needs some TLC and his feet trimmed, as you mentioned. He does toe out slightly, on all four feet. He has a decent shoulder and neck. I probably would like to see a little sweeter head on him, but his is ok. He is a bit butt-high and I doubt that will change, given his age. He is a bit goose-rumped too. Considering (I think) he's not had excellent care in the past, he seems to grow a good mane and tail. Look after those and I'll bet you could have a tail which might drag the ground in time.

Worm him. Put him on a really good diet. Get a little weight and muscle on him and take some photos in about three months. I think he will look a lot better. Who knows what he might excel in. Maybe nothing, but just become a nice little riding horse. Who knows what breed is in there. His very thick mane tells me there might be pony of some kind. His rather large jowls, tell me he might have some QH. There again, he could be anything really.

Did they tell you anything of his sire and dam or previous owners. At his age, you might be able to trace his background.

Too bad. But good that he has a nice home with you. In time, with some very careful training, he might become a nice children's pony.

@Elana;

Color has nothing to do with attitude, willingness, or behavior.There is no possible way that behavior can be linked to color. Telling someone this is like saying all blondes are stupid and ignorant, which they are not.
