Do you see thoroughbred?

This is my registered QH gelding Bennie Due aka Duey. To me there's no way he doesn't have at least some TB in him. So my question is, do you guys see it?

Thanks!
Oh and I know these pictures are terrible and do him no justice.

I see what you mean, He looks like a race bred QH , Have a look at his lines it they may have been race bred . Quick info I found for you.

The members tried to only admit those horses that were good bulldog type horses. This term is used to describe the horses that were very muscular and lower to the ground, as opposed to the thoroughbred type horse with long legs bred for racing. There were many debates on letting the thoroughbred type horses into the registry. The AQHA would only register horses after inspection for conformation and since most judges were looking for the bulldog type horse the others got excluded. Two other registries were even formed to allow them a place to register. This got very cumbersome and so eventually AQHA merged and allowed the horses that were registered in either of these registries a place in theirs.

I actually see quarter horse - a little light maybe (admit I don't know much about them).

How old is he? He could 'chunk out' a bit yet

He's 15 but hasn't been worked with in 5 years so he lacks muscle and really needs some weight on him.

My first thought is that he needs some groceries and a good exercise program.
His conformation doesnt look one bit thoroughbred to me. There are a lot of different conformation of QHs out there depending on what their purpose. By looking at him, he looks a lot like a racing QH.

Why are you so set on your horse being something other than QH?

My next horse will be a QH or at least have QH in him. They are the most outstanding breed out there. I wish every breed of horse out there had their workable mind. They are the most intelligent breed I have ever worked with.

Yep, he does have a touch of TB in him. (Of course, I have seen his papers so I know) ;p, but he has the leaner, taller, longer look of an appendix bred horse. QH, until they began to be bred with TB, were like Shalani said, bulldogs. They were short, averaging about 14.2 to 15.2, and very stocky with strong, compact legs and bulky muscle mass. A perfect example that I can think of right now is Reining Girl's Duchess. She has the foundation build on a slightly taller frame.

Is he an Appendix? If he is, that means he has a certain percentage of TB in him. MOST Quarter horses actually have SOME TB in them. Mine is NOT an Appendix and has Man O' War lines.... He's a cute horse, could use some muscling and fat but really cute. I don't see alot of TB in him, maybe the long legs and the head...

Did you know The American Quarter Horse is reputed to be the oldest all-American breed. The origins of this breed started as early as the 1600s, soon after settlement of the Americas by the British. In order to produce a horse suitable for both work and sport, English horses, with a background of Arab, Native and Spanish blood were crossed with stock of Spanish origin already in America.
