That was my first thought, but then I saw the feathering that a Knabstrup just doesn't have. Might be crossed with a Shire or something?
Either way, he looks gorgeous.

I think the feathering is "added"... he got a horsey weave! Hehe. Okay, really though - look at the top of the feather, where it starts. There is a clear curved line between leg hair and the start of the feathers. Could be a really nice trim job, I suppose... but additionally, the feathers are LAYERED... not like, 'natural growth' layers, or anything... like, choppy layers that don't lay right when blown by the wind. Anybody seen Britney Spears in the wind - her layers don't lay right either, haha.

Additionally, Norikers are a spotted draft breed. Just saying...

Actually guys, I'm pretty sure that if this horse does not have special makeup/hair, it is probably a Noriker. They are beautiful, and the feathering ranges from slight (think: Haflinger) to heavy. I think it depends on the horse.


I especially like this pic:

Oooo - and him, too!

Wow, so gorgeous. Maybe a shire knabstrup cross?

Looks like a Noriker to me, maybe with some added feathering.

Real coloration, the appaloosa spotting is on the horse. The feathers however, are possibly added or dyed. He would not have solid colored legs from the knees down as a leopard. His legs should have mottled/mixed feathering. This same type of dye job was done in the "Firemares" in the movie Krull in the 80s. Clydesdales and Shires were used with lower legs dyed black, making them appear quite odd.

I'm thinking Knabstrup with fake feathering.

That is the sexiest horse I've ever seen!
