What IS he? C'mon, take a shot!

This was my first horse, Titan. I know, obviously, he's a pinto. His dam was a registered APHA mare, but I'm not sure who the sire was, due to no registration, and the people who owned the mare bought her pregnant.

Any ideas what he was/is?

Pictures should be attached...

The one with me on him was only a few short days after I bought him, and he was underweight. The second was the picture that sold him, and at that point he was fat. (Kept breaking out of his stall... would knock the gate off the rollers on top)

I think he looks pure Paint or possibly Morgan or Mustang (with the thick neck).

My first thought was Tennessee Walker. :?

See, I thought he might be walker, or foxtrotter... he had a really smooth, swinging trot and lope, but he didn't swing his feet out to the side when he moved. He looks thick-necked in the second picture because he was REALLY fat. You should have seen the belly on him... look at his underarm in each picture. You can definitely tell how much he grew in a year. (From 3 to 4 yrs old) He was also 15.3 and wore a size 2 shoe because his soles were allowed to pancake out real bad as a colt.

But I looked at some Tenn Walker pics and he really wasn't built like what I see there. He didn't prance his feet real high like that either.. if anything he hated loping, and I had to have a professional trainer put 3 weeks of hard work on him to get him out of a trot.

My first thought when I looked at the second picture was Morgan too. My best friend had a few Morgans, and that picture kind of reminded me of that. I think he might have some Morgan in him, but I'm not as good as others at guessing.

Actually, natural walkers don't really pick their feet up that high. Most of what is seen in shows is completely manufactured.

I love this video, it shows how a walker should move.

Here's a morgan/paint cross, and it's as close as I can find. I'm going to say that he most likely was morgan, considering he had the curly mane and tail..

And here's a picture of another Morgan that I think best resembles his build when he was in his best shape.

my guess is Morgan/ Paint. He's got that Morgan-y build and look about him.

Cute!

Here's another picture of him, still relatively thin in the behind and chest, but had enough feed to give him a big ol' potbelly.. LOL

This is him with two former QH fillies hubby and I trained for John Murnane.
