Here are some pics of a 15.1 Quarter horse. Would like to get opinions. He has his winter coat and hasn't been worked in a while. Thanks in advance.

This guy appears to have some TB breeding taking in his legs and long back. His croup seems to fall off steeply (croup to tail). Take this with a grain of salt, because I'm no expert. lol
Appygirl,

I did notice the croup, and was wondering if that was "conformational" or something that might change as starts training again and "muscles up."

Interesting on your TB observation. I though his back and legs look very QH and not TB at all - thick and muscled.

Thanks for the input.
Some folks would call him "goose rumped". Lots of horses are. It is his conformation, and once he's back in training, he'll muscle up, but won't hide the croup.

I thought he looked very QH-y. Nice package.
I thought the crease down the rump was kind of a draft horse thing. Is that not what they call "double muscling"? Is that found in QH's as well?

Yep, found in other breeds, not only drafts.
Oh my goodness, your horse could be my sister's horse's twin! He's a solid chestnut appy with a beautiful blaze. That second picture makes me think, "Look! Hunter!" every time I see it. I'll have to show my sister.

He's so beautiful! ^_^ My sister's horse is goose-rumped, too. lol
