You can see draft, barb and thoroughbred in this boy's background. He is a little down hill and a bit long over all. I would like him to be shorter coupled, but the draft horse is there. The withers and topline of the neck show some TB and the head some Barb although the dish in the face is not typical Barb. He has the draft bone. He toes out a little in front. He is body heavy but that is his build. His neck ties in to the chest at a good spot. His shoulder is steep.
Love his nice, strong feet. Looks like a lot of hoof wall which is excellent.
Nice horse. Love the seal brown color.
You know the draft horse came in from turning draft stallions in with the feral herd to breed the fast and quick barb out of the Indian ponies. That draft horse blood survives to this day.. but so does the other blood. Sometimes you can find a Feral Mustang that throws back to mostly Barb.. and they are not big but they are quick and close coupled.
Most, whether they have draft in them or not, are pretty good horses. Hardy. This horse looks like one of those to me. I like him.
