What breed of horse is this?
 
Can someone tell me what breed of horse this is? The picture was taken on my great-grandfather's dairy farm in Clarksburg, WV, in the '40's. My great-grandparents immigrated from Asturias, Spain, in 1915. The fellow with the horse is the hired hand who worked the farm for many years. Thank you for the information!

Looks like some sort of draft to me.

I don't know about him being a cross, but who knows.
Do you have any other info on this guy? His name? Gender?

i was also thinking it might be a belgian because like with alot of draft breeds today they were breed to be more refined but back then i think they were more stocky
