    See, I was going to say Anglo-Arab. But I don't think there are many around anymore.

    OMG he's cute! He does have an Araby head huh, but still makes you think Thoroughbred.

    He's darling!

    Trakehener or Trak/Arab cross? Though he is a bit larger boned than most Arab crosses...could even have some paint in him (breeking stock paint which often has TB in pedigree)
    Whatever he is he is pretty!

    He is that rare bred called "handsome bay horse".

    Welcome, neat that you have one of those.

    I will go with Bluey's guess! Nice face markings. Lot of filling out still to do on him. So all the turnout time possible, for him to run and build up his body.

    I don't really see Arab in him. He looks like my TBxdraft actually! So...TB? TB cross?

    I think the photos are too hard to tell much of anything about him other than he is kind of cute and bay.

    I was going to guess Standardbred too. Or by the OPs handle, Canadian Sport Horse or Trake.

    I must admit he looked a little Morgan-y in one photo (must be the thick wavy mane) but he's awfully big to be a Morgan.

    He sure is cute though!

    You realize that you have set certain expectations of "dress" for this impressionable young boy

    So tell us already!

    Otherwise we will start coming up with weird guesses...like he could be a small draft or a very big Shetland pony, or...an appaloosa that someone filled in the dots...(actually there is a solid appaloosa as part of breed, figure that one out!)
