What breed is Hero?
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hero is my 7 y/o grade gelding I just got from the local sale barn. I was wondering if maybe some of you might know what breed he is? I was thinking QH or some QH but he also seems to look slightly different than normal QHs his size or maybe I'm just crazy. Hes just under 16hh. Also, he stands parked out when hes tied up or is on lead and is stopped. But he was also shown and rode in parades etc. so could he have been taught to do stand that way? He doesnt do it out in the field. I dont believe it has anything to do with his sheath cause he drops VERY often and I have seen him pee. He's not gaited, and has a slight roman nose.

The very first thing I thought when I saw the picture was Percheron cross. But I am far from educated in telling horse breeds from appearances.

He's a cutie!

When I first saw him I thought maybe crossed with a draft horse of some sort, Hmmm?

Thanks so much : )

He has a very sweet, gentle, &calm dispostion. Not spookish at all. Very sweet!

Hero's face looks TB, rest maybe as well, or QH.

He has a HUGE head! Haha : )
And really? My TB is super long and lanky. Heros tall but very fat. and a very easy keeper which I cant say the same for my TB : P

His head just looks huge, which immediately turns me off from TB.

Are his feet as huge as they look in the last picture? It may just be my phone, but they look big.

Must the photos, because I can't see the roman nose. He looks like an English type horse to me. Not all TB's are hard keepers, some are porkers. Another breed he kinda reminds me of, but you would know by riding him, is Tennesse Walker.

I thought TWH for a second, too.

I would guess a STB or TWH crossed with a TB. Both would explain the big head, but he does have that TB body.

ETA: Both of you said TWH horse before me, great minds think alike! ;-)
