Critique Diamond. Any opinions on his breed are greatly appreciated. =)

This is Diamond. He was a rescue. This is from the day we brought him home so he is a tad on the thin side. He has fattened right up since this was taken. This is the best picture I have for critique. I don't have any I took specifically as conformation shots. I keep forgetting to.

Anyways, he's around 15 years old. He's part Morgan, though we're unsure what he's crossed with. We are leaning heavily towards TWH. Opinions?

Feel free to rip him apart. I won't tell him.

Sorry - that position makes it impossible to say anything decent about the horse.

Ask again when you have better photos.

It is really hard to tell from this pick. I would love to be able to see his face. From what I can see I can believe that he is part Morgan. Can you show us a pic with his head up? Head set can be a big clue to his breed. If he is part TWH he might have a higher neck set (Morgans can have high neck sets too though) If he has a lower head set he may be part quarter horse or other stock breed. How tall is he? Definitely has high withers.

Hope things work out well with him.

As posted above, this photo makes it very difficult if not impossible to post a good response. Here is a link below that will help you figure out how to take a good confo shot we try to critique.

I know how to take good shots. I just always forget. lol So I just thought I'd post and see if anyone would take a stab at it.

His shoulder looks steep, but could be angle and since he's eating....we'll see.

Could you get some pictures without the mask on?

I saw the pictures in your barn, and my beest guess would be morgan or morgan mix.
