    Guess the breed?

    Other than "mud ball" . This is a horse being fostered at a friend's farm. He is supposedly a "percheron cross" he's been there for a week or two now and I went out yesterday expecting to find a big horse. This guy is maybe 13-13.2 hands... I want to say shetland cross, any other guesses?

    He is super cute and super friendly, he is going to make somebody a very happy little kid.

    I would also guess a pony cross too. The silver dapple coloring is a tall tail sign for that, unless he's been crossed with a rocky mountain horse but the length of the back and shortness of the legs, along with the silver dapple color make me think pony. Since aside from the rocky breed, silver only occurs regularly in ponies. On rare instances you'll see TWH's with it and Morgans. And in exceeding rare instances QH's, which is almost never seen. I say the evidence lends strongly to a pony cross.

    Yeah I am terrible with the pony breeds. When I saw his color rocky mountain poped into my head right away, he certainly has a horse sized head that looks funny on his body if you ask me.

    Whatever he is im going to guess it was a silver dapple crossed with a bay gene...could have a little mountain horse in him...if he does then whatever it was crossed with deffinitly threw a lot more traits then the mountain horse did...
