I am positive Shrek is a dun paint and not a buckskin. It's a common mistake

He strikes me as a potential speed horse, barrels, poles, something like that. I don't know how good of a pleasure horse he would make because his shoulder is a bit upright and it looks like he may be a bit of a rough ride.

Even though he's unregistered, do you have any idea what his basic lines are like?

thanks, ya, i didn't think he'd make a good pleasure horse either...what do you think about reining?as for a rough ride, you are probably right about that, i seem to remember my grampa always telling me upright pasterns make for a bumpy ride and he has very thick upright pasterns....as for his lines, his dad is registered paint, not sure of his bloodlines, he's about 16 now and my friends husband has had him since he was a yearling, i will ask her what his lines are like, they also have his mom, she is unregistered but i believe she is of all things (and i could have misheard but i'm pretty sure this is what he said) QH/Fjord, i will see if they know anything of her bloodlines but don't know if they will, i just know they kept her cuz she had a good mind and the stud is their best horse, he's gotten them out of every bad situation they can think of.
