Trying to figure out the breed???
We just bought a horse. He is a tri-color paint about 18 years old according to the vet. He has huge legs but not draft size. And a jug head. Hes like 15.1 hands.
i looked thru many pics and the closest i found to his leg size looked like donkey legs...or cow legs. His hoofs are not huge but they are not little either.
I was just looking to see if anyone knew what breeds(besides drafts) that have these HUGE legs. It looks like he could carry a 400lb person NO PROBLEM... Maybe not that big really but his legs just amaze me:)
Any insight would be greatly appriciated!!
He's probably a cross, though photos would be a big help!
If he is indeed a draft cross, then he would techincally be a Pinto, not a Paint, as Paints can only be of Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred breeding ;)
We have a pinto draft cross - well you can't tell he is pinto now unless you look closely because grey took over - but he has good thick legs. The cross can make them smaller than purebred drafts.
not sure ill post pics in a few minutes they will not be of great quality
I do not think he is cross with a draft because he is little besides his muscular legs and chest. But I am totally at a loss for what he may be crossed with.
I have heard mustang or morgan but neither of those breeds tend to display those huge muscluar legs that rocky has...
So I am at a loss
He looks like a draft cross to me. Or just a really thick paint. Some of the stock-type old school paints are thick like that.
Also, being nitpicky, but he's a bay pinto/paint, not a tri-color.
At 15.1 he is only 2 inches shorter than our draft cross and there is a Morgan X Percheron in town that is only 14.3 hands. From what I can see in the pics he could be draft cross. They are not the greatest quality though.

This isn't the pic I was thinking of, but it workshttp://www.google.com/search?hl=en&tbo=d&biw=320&bih=416&tbm=isch&spell= 1&q=tricolor+paint+horse&sa=X&ei=wo8WUfHmC6eoiAL9n YCgDA&ved=0CDkQBSgA#i=8

So according to another forum I'm a redneck hick
I did not know the difference between the two, I only know what I have been told/taught. Lol, which let me tell you i have had to pick through with a fine tooth comb, because of all of the bs I have been force fed..
I learn more everyday and I do like hearing new info. I am not being mean here, so don't think that. I was just wondering peoples thoughts on what Rocky may or may not be!! I thank everyone of you for your input.
Oh and just to let everyone know...Not everyone who says tri-color is a fool. I will where the redneck tag anyday:) I am very proud of who I am!!!
