    RedmondDressage is that a feedlot in WA? I'd bet he's an "older style" TB, great old breeding. I don't see anything else in there. Happy day for him and good for you!

    His mane isn't long and ratty so methinks he's been with "people" at some point along the way.

    Good luck OP!
    Seconded! And lucky you if he's a QH/Morgan, because they're TOUGH. I have one out back I have to go feed who's in his 35th year.

    Calvincrowe, yes it's in WAshington I believe.
    I looked up the other horse in the pic with Jango because I am one of those people who wants Lil Joes horse from Ponderosa. Pretty horse, long front toes.

    He is cute. I bet he'll be super no matter what you do with him. He does look like he'll move nicely, and he's got a nice, calm expression, especially when you consider where he is. Good luck!

    I'd guess appendix. Bet he'll clean up nicely.

    If it is the kill pen/auction/dumping ground I'm thinking of in Central WA , it is VERY likely he is a TB. You can't give them away right now here (anywhere?), and many are dumped there when owners and trainers can't keep them running or have a place to lay them up, or simply can't afford them. He doesn't look like the typical QH you'd find in that area of the state, either. Unlikely that a friendly mixed breed family horse would end up there...

    I like him! I too would say TB or Appendix. Either way he's a good looking fellow! My Appendix has feathering just like his.

    Capall - he really does look like your mare!

    You know, I did think old school TB at first as he is very similar to the OTTB gelding my mom had back in the 80's but I haven't seen many built like that lately. He is from sunnyside here in WA. We're super excited for him to get here. We're going to give him a good bit of time to settle and then start him from scratch since we don't know anything about him.

    Angela Freda - we had our eye on the one behind him too. My SO was in love with him. I figured he'd go fast though, the flashy colored horses seem to go no problem most of the time. The plainer bays not so much

    I see appendix. He is really lovely. Please update us as he gets home and settled. I'd love to see how he moves.

    My AQHA/APHA gelding has the same feathers. My guess is all TB or Appendix. There just aren't THAT many Morgan crosses around here and the head/neck don't say Morgan to me.

    Oh! I saw him too, such a lovely looking fellow. Glad he found a place to land.

    My 17-year old QH-shaped TB gets "feathers" like that every winter, He's maybe 15.1.

    I'd check for a tattoo - you can look up on the Jockey Club site with a partial read including the first letter (for year born) and his markings. Mine wasn't very cooperative so DH held his lip up while I took pics and we deciphered from those.

    Best of luck with him! You're doing a wonderful thing, and he's very handsome!

    That horses markings are beyond flashy though, just... wow.
    Whomever gets him better play nice with him, cause if he ends up back at a KP it's not like he won't be recognized.
    But as I get older I am increasingly aware of the subtle beauty of a nicely conformed 'plain' horse. Yours is lovely. And I vote TB.

    {I wonder if a certain former Rescue Pres. who used to flip TBs as Hunters had her hands on this one ever? He has the looks of one she would have snapped up immediately... and then put up on her 'needs re-rescuing' page.}

    I'd vote TB as well. He's conformed a bit like my TB mare, and she's had feathers since I've owned her; I got her when she was 6.

    Not all TBs are tattooed, either. So if he doesn't have a tattoo that's not a definitive no on his being a TB.

    He's very nice looking.

    Maybe Morgan and TB? Welcome to the crazy club! During my teens, my three best horses were kill pen rescues. He looks lovely, regardless of what breed he is.

    What a handsome fellow! Good for you for taking him!

    My first guess would be TB x something stock bred: QH, paint, appy...

    When you get him home, it would be fun to send a sample to Texas A&M: they do equine "breed" testing. It's not super specific, but it can give you an idea!

    I immediatly thought Morgan X....but I see the old skool TB in him (we have a gray that is built like him)...it's the short neck and stocky front end that scream morgan to me lol

    I hope he is everything you want/need plus more!! Good luck, keep us posted on his progress
    if you havent fallen off a horseā€¦.then you havent been ridin long enough
