He looks to me to either be a Quarter Horse or a Quarter Horse cross. Does he have any brand marks on him? I've seen quite a few what we call "Mexican Quarter Horses" (mustangs mainly) that look similar to him.

I don't see draft either. Qh X would be my guess.

No brands on him, I made sure to look. If he is a QH crossed with a gaited horse, he could still end up gaited, right? Because I was walking him today and I thought that he looked more like a QH.

Maybe a QH and Tennessee Walking Horse cross? :)

Any comments on his conformation? He seems to be a bit camped out behind, but if he has Tennessee Walker in him, that's normal, right?

He is a well built horse. Reminds me of Traveller, Robert E. Lee's famous horse

Well, to anyone who is interested, I think I am pretty sure what breed Cowboy is. Pretty sure he is a QH/TWH cross! I rode him for the first time today after getting him home after the vet said it was okay, and he has that fanciest, prettiest, head bobbing gait I have ever seen (Maybe I am a bit biased... lol). Very long strides like a TWH, but he is thick built like a QH. Either way, that's what I am going to call him, haha!

Too long and thin a neck, and too small a hind quarters..... It at least that's what I'd tell you if he was quarter horse! Lol. Not a bad looking on the whole. His head does look standard bred to me.

Maybe he is a QH, Standard mix... lol. I'm not too worried about what he is - He is a good horse, and thats all that matters. :)

He looks just like a walker. Though he does have that 'clunky' standy head..
Possibly a mix of the two? Im leaning more towards walker.

He looks like a tattoo on the neck?
check the lip. He could still be a STB without the tattoo, as there are a lot of folks in the South who breed STB for speed racking and never get the registered with the USTA

Does the hip bone seem to protrude? One of the characteristics of one of the gray STB blood lines is protruding hip bones.

Come join us at the 2016 World Standardbred Show Oct 13-16 at Eden Park Equestrian Complex in Sunbury Ohio. PM me for more info
