Which breed do you think he is?

This is about 6years old pony-gelding. What do you think which breed is he? I was told he was cross, but not between what.

Very certain there is some Welsh or finer boned breed in him. Could be a Shetland cross, but I very much doubt that possibility. On the other hand....? No question about how so very cute he is.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Shetland cross. Maybe mini, maybe welsh. I know you can get shetlands that are finer boned like some Welsh's...

definitely would say shetland welsh cross, from a couple of picture looks like could even have some mini in him, but not sure of his height.

I was thinking Shetland and mini.

The typical answer you will get is welsh, but I think what you need to do is see what your local, most common pony is-local to your country.

What we have here, will be different than what you have there. Do some research guys and take a look at what she has locally.

Most common are welsh ponies, shetlands and islands ponies. Few minies, but they are rare, also german ponies. It's very possible that he is a shetland, welsh cross. Do you think he has any islander in him?
And he has about 12hands, maybe a bit less.
