Guess the breed!

I bought a stud colt (now a gelding) at auction a couple of months ago with no information other than he was a yearling (clearly 😂) anyways I have no idea what he could be I’ve had a lot of people tell me their opinions and everyone’s opinion is different. Curious to know what everyone thinks he looks like? (He is not gaited)

Gonna go with quarter horse, bay, carrying some pinto genes due to the white sclera around his right eye and the chrome.


He also appears to be a bit splay legged in the front, like my Trigger, also appears narrow through the chest, like Trigger... who is NOT a quarter horse and is often mistaken for a gaited horse.



This leads me to wonder if QHxSpotted Saddle Horse. That would explain the narrow set to his shoulders and fores and the chrome. IIUC, the gaited gene when crossed with a non-gaited horse, is a 50/50 thing. He may be half gaited horse, just didn't win the gaited lottery (Like Trigger most likely).

Very interesting and would make sense! I’ve always wondered about his eye/ what causes it (I call it his crazy eye) lol

Saving Trigger - With a Side Order of: And then there's Everyone Else-78831144_2904370726240693_5397439320179081216_o.jpg


That's Trigger with his 'crazy' eye and splay legs. Note how close his front legs are through the chest - our equine vet said that alone made her believe he's gaited and Spotted Saddle Horse... or half SSH... but he's not gaited. He looks built about like your horse, but. Yours is very young too. Trigger is going on 13 now, so he's fully mature. Your boy's build may change as he matures.


That white sclera is just... a thing. The skin around the eye ends up white, not a dark color. Appaloosa's are famous for it on both eyes, thus giving them a very 'human' appearing eye. I think it can crop up in any breed but is considered a 'flaw' in terms of show horses, etc. It makes Trigger look like he's showing the whites of his eyes, getting 'crazy eyes' going when in fact he's not. LOL

Do you have any full body pics (side view) of him? Curious to see what he might turn out to look like! He’s one big mystery! Rescued from an auction (guy who brought him didnt even know if he was a filly or colt🙃🙃)

Keep in mind, I really don't know for sure what breed he is. Knowing what little I know of his history, plus what the vet thinks, we're (The vet and I) going with SSHxMustang (Spanish type conformation). He is right at 14hh, and fairly lightweight. I'd say he falls in the 'light horse' category but has the strength and stamina to pack my butt around all day at a trot.
