His pasterns are really upright in the front. It is hard to see his hooves in your pictures, that may be due to poor farrier care to some degree. I imagine his topline will improve some with some muscling up, but not that much. He will always look a little off because of the high wither and high tail set.

I agree that he looks like a QHxArab.

He looks like he is sinking down in the middle...with his hindquarters and shoulder leaning in towards each other...

He needs alot of muscling and maybe a little weight as well, but I just absolutely LOVE his face! I want to steal his face and take it home with me! LOL

And he looks chestnut to me, as his mane and coat are the same colour.

Oh, one question. Is he being ridden at the moment?

At the moment, no. When I have extra time out there [not very often, but sometimes] I will lunge him and sometimes I get on him barback..I don't jump on him off the ground because he's too tall for that..He's kind of a handful, which is why I don't often times have enough time after I work with the ones that I have to get ready for show.

He looks like some kind of gaited breed mixed with something else. I would call him chestnut, most definitely.

Over all he looks undermuscled, and could use alot of work to build muscles. His topline is sagging, and his high withers don't improve that appearance. He doesn't have the nicest legs, but if he is only used for trails, there is no issue there.

Ahhh. Okay, I can understand. Can't you maybe ask around and see if there would be anyone willing to work with him abit and build up some muscle? (and maybe a few manners too, LOL)

You had him as a foal but are un-sure of his breed?

I'd guess QH/Arab also.

I didn't personally have him as a foal, but he came from an auction as a weanling
