He does look very healthy and handsome. That's for sure.

This guy looks like a warmblood. I have to agree with the other opinions.

I have a Thoroughbred gelding built like a WB as well so I might have said TB based on the shoulders/withers and classic TB face. Kind of hard to see his hooves I am guessing they are probably larger than they appear in the photo based on the assumption at least partial of each appears to be sunk in the sand. My next guess, however, would have been Trakehner. :) He is a good looking boy either way though for sure and it appears somebody definitely loves him because he is obviously well taken care of (as goes for the facility in the backdrop). Congrats!

He looks like a Thoroughbred to me. A bit over conditioned too! Nice bone and nicely put together. Have you any photos of him over fences? He looks the type who would be pretty in the air.

He is the horse in my profile pic and I am currently on my phone, but I will add a picture of what he looked like at our previous boarding facility. The place he is at now in the picture takes EXCELLENT care of him and he's actually been out of work for the last 8 months due to me being away at college. And yes, he has quite large hooves for a TB. He's a 2 or a 3 in shoes, but I currently do not have him shod. I had a QH in the past that developed navicular so large hooves was one of the requirements. I actually purchesed him for $750 when he was 18 months old and have done all the work with him. His sire is a big boned Irish bred TB. They have the same face and eyes, but his daddy is chestnut :)

No critique, but I think he is stunning! And at $750, you got a heck of a deal. I would call him a steal!
