No idea but he's certainly interesting.

I can decide if I love the color or if I hate it lol. I'm interested to know about him too. Maybe check halter breeds? He looks really beefy like a halter horse. But he's all decked out so maybe he's not.

I think someone edited his color so it makes it incredibly hard to search for him. I've checked halter, rope, reining... (don't know why), and ranch horses. Still finding nothing that looks similar. It's so frustrating!

I was thinking he's a bit photoshopped too, or at the very least there's a filter like from Instagram. I know sooty palominos exist but this one just seems fishy.

Are you sure he's famous/searchable? What's the debate? Google will let you upload an image and use it to search, maybe that will help.

What's the debate about? Just the horse in general? Or his name? Or coloring?

Subbing because I'm interested in knowing who he is. I'm interested in what the debate also.

The original person wanted to know who this stud is because she thinks this is what a perfect all around horse looks like. She is also a halter horse breeder and shows them too. So people are voicing their opinions (a few are agreeing with her) about this horse and she's getting upset. So I'm trying to figure out who this horse is and what is he known for. He looks like he is a halter/cow bred horse.

He's definitely not halter bred. If he was, then it's unlikely that he'd have the conformation to stay sound for competitive roping.

Also, based on his look, I'd say he's a stud as well. I'd say he's more FQH breeding.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sorry for the double post, but I just wanted to point out that you can't positively identify halter breeding based just on bulk.

This mare that I rode a year or so ago was completely cow and racing bred...no halter in her lines anywhere and she was about the same size as that palomino when she was 2

She must be one heck of a psychic if she can tell he's a perfect specimen from this one photo at a 3/4 angle....

He's beefy but that doesn't mean he's halter bred for sure. Smrobs may be on to something with the foundation guess. Now I'm intrigued!


Edit to add: Again smrobs you make a point- I almost mentioned that I've seen mares this muscled, are we *sure* the Pali is a stud?
