A lot less than you think he should.
The formula girth X girth X body length divided by 330 is amazingly accurate.
Girth is the circumference (in inches) of the body about 4" behind the forelegs.
Body length is a straight line from the point of the shoulder to the buttock (I stop at the tail)
As a ball park not knowing how much bone and meat he has on him, I would expect somewhere in the 1200-1300# range. My full Percheron gelding, old style build and 16.1 weighs in at 1340# and by the formula he should weigh 1350#.
