    I said he was brown. To me I just saw the lighter muzzle and flanks, they don't tend to bleach out there. Thanks for all the comments!

    Those withers scream TB!

    I didn't see anyone ask, have you checked him for possible TB tattoo?

    If he is indeed full TB and a JC boy, he would be registered as bay. I believe the Jockey Club registers any horse with black points as bay? Even if they are correctly identified as brown.

    I'm with Kayella and you that he is indeed brown because of his lighter areas. If sun bleached, it would occur in obvious places, not in those that do not readily receive a lot of sun.

    I also think he's TB or appendix. And the people who have critiqued him thus far have pointed out the obvious conformation points, so I won't add to that. Lol

    I will check for a tattoo tomorrow, it would be under his lip right? His past owner doesn't know anything about him, bought him from a friend and didn't care about papers or anything. He just likes to look at the horses and pet them and likes to ride the old ploddy one once in a blue moon. Wish he had gotten more information about him, but oh well

    No lip tattoo that I could find. The top inside of his lip is dark, kinda marbled. Was hard to get him to stay still enough for me to look, so I played with the his lip, he must be ticklish, he does the smile thing when you play with it. Pretty cute, then he got in a fight with the hose, accidentally took it out of the water trough, it sprayed him, he dropped it and took off. Such a personality, love him

    He is a bit back at the knee and a bit tied in below the knee. He toes out as mentioned and his right front looks a bit clubby as well as toed out. He is a bit bow legged behind. His withers are high and his neck set just a bit low. I would say he has "knife" withers and will be difficult to fit for a saddle (may need a cut back saddle if you ride English). In spite of the high withers, I expect this horse travels heavy on the forehand as his over all build seems to indicate this. He is weak in his coupling but is strong in his hind quarters and lots of trotting up hills and caveletti will help him to build thre right muscle and be better balanced.

    He looks Bay to me (not that color matters) and he looks to have something else in him besides Thoroughbred. I suspect Appendix QH.

    He seems to have a kind eye and, in these photos, gives and appearance of being a nice horse to handle and ride.. a steady type.
