i'd say QH because he's not a mustang without a brand, at least imo.

To critique your gelding with such a great attitude is a worthless enterprise. I'm delighted to see all of that striping! (Do we have a thread here for Dunn horse owners?) I see ALL QH in him. That slightly-Roman nose gives him the ability for high air intake, and I LIKE that a lot. TOO many people have bred that OUT of horses thinking (PC) that it doesn't make for a pretty head. But, if you look at really old photos of American bred horses you see Roman noses frequently. The only criticism is that he is a little sway-backed, but you didn't tell us his age. Congratulations, he's a keeper!! =D

He appears to have a short-ish back, which is always a great thing to have. I'm not really seeing sway; but that doesnt mean he isn't. With all of that extra lovin' on him, it's a bit hard to tell xD

I think he has the potential for a good topline. His withers and shoulder angle are nice, and his neck ties in pretty well. And I just LOVE the face. It gives him so much personality.

I'm still sticking with QH.

i personally <3 roman noses! but i think the head has to match the body. a roman nose on an otherwise "delicate" animal looks funny.

this guy is super cute with his convex face!

I am fat and out of shape and I am still beautiful..........

Lol. Nice horse. If he is half as good you say on trails, I think any of us would be proud to ride him.

He appreciates the compliments. I feel he is a diamond in the rough. I cannot wait to see him as he looses his goofy chubby shapes. He does have a very short back, which is excellent.
You cannot see in the pictures but his muscles will need work. His bottom neck muscle is HUGE from all of the fighting with his rider he has been doing for years. (Harsh bit to low in his mouth, improper saddle fit set to far back tipping forward jabbing into is shoulders, un-educated riders neck reining only with a hand way up in the air from what I saw - It wasn't "his" fault he was arguing) And he can turn left but not right. His neck does not turn right real far. He has a chiropractor coming out and we have been doing a lot of massages and flexing work. He is loosening up and really enjoying the light snaffle bit and lots of circles, sideways, flexing.

Not with that nose! I guess it shows up more in the later pictures, though.

Well it sounds like he's in a much better situation than he was. Keep us updated!

I think he is adorable. Looks QH to me. Slightly sway back or could be slight roach under that. Biscuit has a slight roach back that is apparent when I got him and not so apparent now that he is a chunky bunky.

Hubby's Foundation QH, Sarge, has a short back and OMG he has the most beautiful slow lope that I have ever seen. Short and chunky is a quarter horse trait and so is the sweet nature. Sounds like you have a gem...and a good steady trail horse is worth their weight in gold.

Can't wait to see more of him.

Enjoying my Garmin and mapping trails
