    Does my gelding appear to have Arabian in him? Lightning, 10 year old palomino. DSC09968.JPG DSC09952.JPG DSC09945 (2).JPG
    DSC09989 (2).JPG DSC09953 (2).JPG Some days I'm positive he has some Arabian in him, and other days he looks like a stocky QH....
    What do u all think?

    I would guess he's part Arabian, by the stature and face.

    Id say he has some QH in him. I had a horse like that and thats how she was and was a foundation bred QH. Can you get him DNA tested?

    Very likely, and not unexpected. Most light horse breeds carry Arabians in their pedigree, and that includes Quarter Horses.

    Yeah, I would guess the horse has some Arabian blood. That head type and shape, small ears, the way the head is carried high and the tail all point towards this.
