Gelding Critique- Guess Age and Breeds

This is my gelding, please have a look at him. He's not perfectly square so looks a little camped out but he also may be a little camped out! Guess age and breed if you like! We do a bit of everything, trails to dressage to jumping.

I'm no expert by any means but I like his front end a lot! His neck might be a little short. I'd guess he is a welsh arab cross maybe? I could be totally wrong ! 10 years old??

He is adorable, but I think he is closer to 15- 20 years. Looks great if he is that age

My first impression was Morgan, but I'm now wondering if he isn't something like a Missouri Fox Trotter. I don't know why I say that, because they come in all shapes and sizes, but he just looks a lot like a Fox Trotter to me.

wow look at that neck! I really like him, but I'd like to see more bone in his legs. Gorgeous boy.

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Thanks for the kind replies. He is 18, Quarab. And if you think his neck is big now...you should have seen him before I took 250 lbs off of him! His legs sure looked tiny then, like a marshmellow on sticks.

Any other comments on his confo? I think him being camped out (maybe) is the worst thing outside of short neck and thick throatlatch. He could use some more muscle in his gaskins and I'm constantly working on his topline to keep him supple and strong until he's 40 but I'm biased so want others opinions!

Just for fun, this is the color he turns when he sheds the winter dapples. It's like having two different horses!
