What breed?

Im new here and I was curious if anyone might know what my horse is mixed with? I was told he was Tennessee walker he is gaited but I dont know what else he is mixed with. ( he is 28 and in this picture his bad injury on his stomach was still not healed )

I could see him being purebred, actually. He looks a lot like the older TN Walkers I've encountered (online; they're exceedingly rare in Aus).

As an unrelated aside, have you thought about having some bodywork done on him? I have seen some incredibly gentle therapies do amazing things with older horses' toplines. "The skinny one" at my farm (a 22 year old TB who has looked like he needed rescuing for YEARS) showed absolutely stunning improvement with regular Emmett therapy :)

You really think so? And I normally do but we have the farm and the other house and due to some changes we havent been living at the farm so I have no where to keep doing exercises with him during the winter :( . Right now he is sick too i thought he was a goner last night, he had a fever wasnt really eating and within hours started drooling green and red out of his mouth and dripping onto the floor and this was after his nose stopped foaming up and hes lost a bunch of weight the past few months and somehow hurt his knee along with his stomach still healing up from last april it's almost closed off but that picture was back in the fall hes been through a lot of injuries and given me lots of scares lately lol I'm trying my best to get him back into shape but I have a lot of obstacles lol also just so you know I called every vet I could find last night and no one was open but I'm taking him to the vet first thing in the morning his temp was gone this morning and hes completely cleared up but I still dont know what's going on just saying so you dont think that i just decided to not take him to the vet last night lol :)

I wonder if he ate some kind of mildly toxic weed, . . the slobbery and foaming and such.

This is why I recommended in her other thread that he have his teeth checked. The Old Man started doing the same thing... foaming, slobbering, drooling... lost weight. We had his teeth checked and they were toast. He still foams when he eats if he has to work on it very much.
