- - What breed? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-conformation-critique/what-breed-125712/)
Here are some photos of Kody, my 2 year old gelding. I rescued him a little over a year ago. He struggles with maintaining weight and is always a bit "ribby". He also has brittle hoof issues that I've been trying to address, as well. I've been working closely with the vet and farrier for the past year on these issues and have fortunately seen a lot of improvement! :-)
What breed or breeds do you think he is? What riding discipline do you think he is built to do?
It proved to be very difficult to get him to hold still long enough to snap a picture. His butt shot is totally crooked! You can even see in one of the photos he decided he'd busy himself by chewing on his lead rope. He's such a goofball!
Thanks for any input you can share with me!
Eeep- sorry for the gigantic pics!
He looks like he's a tb, to me- very cute boy.
How tall is he? For some reason he makes me think of a solid paint.
He is currently 15.2hh. A friend of a friend who knows the people who owned him at birth (the same people that neglected him and left him to die) claim that his sire is a Quarter Horse and his dam is an Appaloosa. He does not have a single Appy trait on him. I think those people are full of you know what!
I may be wrong - but I'm pretty sure even purebred apps can sometimes inherit no actual appy traits. So the information you have may be perfectly correct on the breed.
I have three apps out of the same sire. One has color, two do not. So he could be half and half.

Interesting! Maybe their claim has some truth behind it after all.
What do ya'll think he is built to do? He is turning out to be very athletic. I would absolutely love to do some reining with him, but I'm ultimately willing to do whatever discipline of riding in which he is best suited.
As always, thank you all for your advice and input!
Appys can most definitely be solid! The only one we have at our barn is solid and you'd never know his breeding aside from his Appy-tude! :lol:
